Description

A luxuriously-packaged box containing a book of photographs taken by Michael Nyman, plus an exclusive CD of his music: 20 previously unreleased pieces selected by the composer to relate to the photo sequences. This limited edition (of 2000 worldwide) is an essential purchase for Nyman fans. Michael Nyman collaborated with the team at the Turin publishing house, Volumina, on this unique and exclusive editorial project. It is focused on some different shooting series realized by the author on different occasions and locations (Paris, Barcelona, Venice, New York, Mexico City, Hong Kong). The colour and black and white digital photographs, many shot before or after a concert, have been catalogued, selected, processed and composed graphically using visual rhythms and musical systems. The visual diary is composed by 1,910 divided into 14 sections: Piano, Portraits, Reflections, People, Architecture, Street, Walls, Nature, Display, Workers, Sport and Games, Flight, Night and the 38 Bus.

Far more than merely a composer, he's also a performer, conductor, bandleader, pianist, author, musicologist, film-maker and a photographer as evidenced here. His restless creativity and multi-faceted art has made this 'Renaissance Man' one of the most fascinating and influential cultural icons of our times.
