Musician/composer/visual artist Brian Eno was added to the Moogfest lineup back in August. And, though Eno will not be performing a set of music during the festival, he does bring other mediums:
• His 77 Million Paintings installation — “Opening on Oct. 28, the first day of Moogfest 2011, the exhibition will continue beyond the festival weekend until November 30, 2011. During Moogfest weekend the exhibition will only be open to Moogfest pass holders but will be open to the general public starting November 2, 2011.”
Held at the YMI Center (39 S. Market St.), noon-midnight Oct. 28-30, $5 for Moogfest passholders, free for VIP passholders. And open to the public Nov. 2-30, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Wednesday-Saturday, 1-6 p.m. Sundays, $10.
• His Illustrated talk — An illustrated talk is pretty much a lecture with visual components. Eno’s recent illustrated talk in Vancouver was described as “discussing time, art, culture and creativity.” High Performance Rodeo explained that, “Armed with an overhead projector (an infinitely more sophisticated device than PowerPoint), Eno will lay bare his thoughts on generative art, haircuts, music history, screwdrivers, and the vast complexities behind them all.”
At Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2 p.m. $15 for Moogfest weekend and VIP pass holders, $25 for Moogfest single day ticket holders, $35 general public.
