As Brian Eno has come up with his own play on minimalism (and we all know
that GG detested it as much as he detested rock music), somehow I don't
think that Gould would have been an Eno fan at all! Where in Eno's work do
you find any sort of complex counterpoint of the type that he relished? No
doubt he may have displayed some interest in Eno's use of electronics etc;
but his music? I don't think so.

Since it has come up at F Minor,
here's a copy of an email I sent to a member
some time ago:
"And in this corner: Glen Gold, child wonder, Virtuoso of the piano
self-proclaimed specialist of unfinished works - And in this corner: Brian
non-musician, self-proclaimed 'uncertain piano', prolific composer..."
One has to wonder what Gould would have made of Eno's 1975 Pachelbel
Canon in D Major. I enjoy it, liner notes educational - not obligatory for
listener's satisfaction. Part One:
'Zenph' (not Senf) will have a little trouble "re-performing" it but given
enough encouragement who knows? Sony? GGF?
