Brian Eno opens 'Lightforms / Soundforms' exhibition in Barcelona
The musician and visual artist’s show includes a music installation in the Catalan capital's airport
Barcelona.- The musician, composer, visual artist, and music producer Brian Eno has filled three floors with sound and light at the Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona with his exhibition 'Lightforms / Soundforms', which opened this Wednesday, June 14 and can be visited until October 1. Eno created the new piece 'New Space Music', a music installation conceived to be listened to specifically in the Max Cahner atrium. He also presented his latest album ‘Reflection' within a music installation in the Barcelona airport. 'Lightforms / Soundforms' presents a selection of his recent work as an artist and musician. The exhibition explains his working method through his notes, diagrams, and drawings. In addition, the exhibit includes the iconic '77 Million Paintings', a generative audiovisual installation. Eno said that with his work, the light and sound get closer to each other, as the exhibition shows.
Eno showed his gratitude for the substantial work done to prepare the exhibition. “I love this city and I ask myself why I do not live here,” he said. There are two reasons according to the artist: “I have a fantastic studio in London, a stunning room which would be difficult to find in Barcelona, and my children are in England. If I can get rid of my children,” he joked, “I’ll come”.
