Brian Eno, known for his dense, cutting-edge art as musician and collaborator, is less widely known for his visual art. Scoates’s thorough monograph of Eno’s art/music collaboration is a visual delight, stunning in scope. This gorgeous book of sketches, scores and interviews dating from Enos’ school days is brilliant.

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.

Praise for Brian Eno: Visual Music…
"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
"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
