Brian Eno: Visual Music

Nenad Georgievski By

Sign in to view read count
Eno's body of work is not an easy task to gather and grasp in one single monograph, and to collect all of the info and details, to explain the ideas and modus operandi behind, as well as to describe the reach of his artistic ideas and protean skills, is a herculean achievement. But despite being comprehensive and detailed, the monograph doesn't acknowledge Eno's involvement and influence over the concept of U2's multimedia extravaganza ZOO TV as well as organizing and encouraging fashion and art events in 1995 in Bosnia as a patron of War Child. The same year he was appointed Visiting professor in Communications design at the Royal College of Art in London.

With striking illustrations and insightful essays, this book provides a thoughtful and comprehensible introduction to the one of the most enigmatic and creative forces in contemporary culture. Each copy also includes a download code where readers will be able to download unreleased music by Eno.
