About the Author: In the world of rock music, Brian Eno's name stands out among the roll call of the famous. After founding Roxy Music, he worked with such high caliber musicians as Robert Fripp, David Bowie, Luciano Pavarotti, Talking Heads and John Cale, and produced pieces by Devo and U2. Eno also recently worked on the soundtrack for Wim Wender's film The Million Dollar Hotel. Mimmo Paladino first made his mark on the art world back in the early 1980s, as one of the protagonists of the Transavanguardia movement. A highly talented painter, sculptor and set designer, his works can be found in leading galleries worldwide.
So, what persuaded two such diverse personalities to collaborate on this superb book, edited by Demetrio Paparoni and published by Alberico Cetti Serbelloni Editore? Brian Eno is not only a musician. His son et lumiere installations have been shown as part of many important exhibitions in top American and European museums. As an artist, Eno is an ardent fan of Paladino's painting and, similarly, Paladino has always admired Eno's audiovisual "ambients."
