Brian Eno brings 'Empty Formalism' exhibit to Berlin

BERLIN (dpa)- Brian Eno - the music producer known for his work with David Bowie, Coldplay and Roxy Music - started presenting a piece of sound art at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin on Thursday.
Named "Empty Formalism," the piece consists of continuously changing light installations projected onto six screens, set to chimes. Viewers are welcome to get absorbed in the project.

Part of the ISM Hexadome exhibit, which promotes electronic music as a form of art, the piece will appear at the museum through April 22.
"This show is a version of empty formalism. By that I mean that the work is closer to the history of music than to the history of painting or sculpture," reads a statement from the artist on the website.
Eno is expected to perform at some point during the exhibit. Other artists also scheduled to participate are Australian composer Ben Frost and Thom Yorke, front man of the band Radiohead.
