    Baudrillard cites a story by Arthur C. Clarke called "The Nine Billion Names of God" in which a sect of Tibetan Buddhists have dedicated their life to writing down every name of God, and once they have done so the purpose of the universe will have been achieved and the world will come to an end. Growing tired of their task, they get engineers from IBM to develop a program for them that achieves this in a couple of months, and having done so, the scientists gasp as the stars disappear from the sk Baudrillard cites a story by Arthur C. Clarke called "The Nine Billion Names of God" in which a sect of Tibetan Buddhists have dedicated their life to writing down every name of God, and once they have done so the purpose of the universe will have been achieved and the world will come to an end. Growing tired of their task, they get engineers from IBM to develop a program for them that achieves this in a couple of months, and having done so, the scientists gasp as the stars disappear from the sky. Baudrillard cites this as a part of how technology has the potential to exhaust all of the world's possibilities. How do I feel about generative art? In principle it is kind of interesting. Eno states "every art object is really a package of possibilities for a kind of world that could exist." While I am truly a fan of Brian Eno's work, I think chance operations, even those he bases around koans, can only provide so much interest before exhausting the potential to generate new meanings around them. But I just got Josopovici-pilled a few days ago, so this entire review is probably just modernist indigestion.

    Although there have been several books on Brian Eno's music this is the first full-length study which concentrates on his visual art and installations. It's very well-designed and full of photographs detailing the span of his work. The articles are thoughtful and articulate and it contains an interview with Eno himself. Both interesting and beautiful. - BH. Although there have been several books on Brian Eno's music this is the first full-length study which concentrates on his visual art and installations.

    I loved this book! So inspirational. I've always been fascinated by Brian Eno the thinker. Yes, I do enjoy his music and his artworks, especially things like Music for Airports, but it's as a philosopher of music and generative art that he really shines! The book is nicely structured with interesting essays on Eno's work and thoughts followed by images from his art installations and of relevant art pieces. My background is in music and composition, so I'm reading the book from that perspective, b I loved this book! So inspirational. I've always been fascinated by Brian Eno the thinker.

A landmark achievement!

    40 yrs. of Brian Eno’s works as a musician, producer, artist & philosopher. The visual art book includes never-before-published archival materials, sketches, illustrations, screenshots, handwritten journal entries & even music from Devo, the Talking Heads & my fav U2. I’ve never seen a book like this in my life. It also includes a code so you can download a never released piece of his music. There were words I didn’t learn in Music 101 or Art 101 in undergrad. Fond memories of the 60’s early 70’ 40 yrs. of Brian Eno’s works as a musician, producer, artist & philosopher.

Fond memories of the 60’s early 70’s music groups (Buffalo Springfield, Jimi Hendrix,) that used this type of visual music The 1st thing that comes to my mind is Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) (5 senses) class I had in my 2nd. Graduate research class. “Where sounds become visual & visual becomes sound.” For me this sums up his entire book. I love the book cover, the font, paper & writing style. Great quotes, as well as the 1,000’s of pictures, references & material. A massive amount of mathematical, historical track through time of the pioneers in this field who have come/gone all packed into 1 book. A very well written intelligent informative book. It was very easy to read/follow & never a dull moment from start/finish. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. This is a 1 of a kind book. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this book. Thank you for the free book Tony Parsons MSW

    Excellent collection of essays on Eno, one lecture by Eno, and one interview with Eno, mostly regarding his visual works with light, time, and space, but also on the man as a whole artistic entity. Eno's lecture about his interest in perfume and aromas is just one of many examples that show how much more of a thinker and curious man he is compared to the majority of us. But my favorite essay of the the bunch is by Brian Dillon, regarding Eno's work (music/light work mostly) and re-casting him as Excellent collection of essays on Eno, one lecture by Eno, and one interview with Eno, mostly regarding his visual works with light, time, and space, but also on the man as a whole artistic entity.

But my favorite essay of the the bunch is by Brian Dillon, regarding Eno's work (music/light work mostly) and re-casting him as a landscape artist, and a particularly British one at that. Having grown up part of the time in East Anglia, although nowhere near any of Eno's touchstones, this spoke to me. But it also made me want to read Sebold's "Rings of Saturn" sometime soon, as Dillon compares the two men and found they were sometimes literally treading the same ground (Dunwich, etc.)

    I have enjoyed much music by and connected to this artist since the early 80’s. I remember reading a book that came with video and instructions telling the viewer to turn their television ninety degrees. The book talked about 4 or 5 of his solo albums and his thought process behind the songs. I thought I understood many of his songs. I was wrong. I will probably never fully understand an artist like Brian Eno but this book took me further down that road then any other source.

    "Imagine, perhaps, an art form that is comprised 10% of music, 25% of architecture, 12% of drawing, 18% of shoe making, 30% of painting and 5% of smell" I like to think that some of my friends live in small intentional communities that work like that. I very much enjoyed this collection discussing the various art and processes Eno used to create with.

    A beautifully presented book that knits Eno’s visual works with his sound and music projects. Thoughtful, comprehensive and inspiring for any contemporary creative folk. Contains some thorough reproductions of Eno’s series-based visual art.

    Amazing book about one of my favorite musicians. The man is nothing short of genius. The book includes sketches and archival materials from 40+ years of Eno's work. Fascinating how he uses mathematical algorithms as a foundation for much of his work. His visual art, his music, and his words continue to inspire. Amazing book about one of my favorite musicians.
