The influences that shaped Wilson's early work that began with the Byrd Hoffman School of Byrds, founded in 1968 by Wilson, were his studies in architecture and painting. Another influence, which is reflected in the name of the Byrds experimental theater group, was the mentoring of dancer Byrd Hoffman.

His collaborations with Philip Glass have been highly important to both men and have helped each of them make major contributions to American culture. Glass is an innovative composer (at least in terms of his basic style, although I admit that he often tends to repeat himself, sometimes quite literally), and it is hard to imagine a better collaborator for Glass than Wilson has sometimes been.

I agree with the other posters. What is interesting about Robert Wilson is the way that he has collaborated very closely with people from other areas of the arts, such as dance and music. This has contributed greatly to his own style and production.
