Spanning more than 40 years, Brian Eno: Visual Music weaves a dialogue between Eno's museum and gallery installations and his musical endeavors--all illustrated with never-before-published archival materials such as sketchbook pages, installation views, screenshots, and more. Steve Dietz, Brian Dillon, Roy Ascott, and William R. Wright contextualize Eno's contribution to new media art, while Eno himself shares insights into his process. Every copy includes a download code for a previously unreleased piece of music created by Eno, making this collection a requisite for fans and collectors.

Praise For…


"A magnificent monograph spanning more than four decades of Eno's music projects and museum and gallery installations, contextualized amidst a wealth of exhibition notes, sketchbook pages, and other never-before-revealed archival materials.. beautiful and compelling." - Brain Pickings

"For more than 40 years Brian Eno 'has explored the complex relationship between light and sound,' Christopher Scoates writes in Brian Eno: Visual Music, a beautifully designed analysis of how Eno became 'completely enveloped in new and unorthodox ways of thinking about the world, visual ideas and music.' This is a catalog of awesome accomplishments, in which we see how Eno's 'parallel practices have often informed each other.'" - New York Times Book Review
