Wright contextualise Eno's contribution to new media art, while text by Eno himself reveals a first-person glimpse into his creative thinking and process.

"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
