About the Author
Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta (1957) has been considered by many as one of the most interesting architect, musician, photographer and intermedia artist at the beginning of the third millennium – according to statements written by personalities like John Cage, Ornette Coleman, Merce Cunningham, John Archibald Wheeler, René Berger, Dove Bradshaw, Daniel Charles, Phill Niblock or William Anastasi among others. His works are included in some of the most important art collections and world-wide recognised institutions like the Whitney Museum of New York, the ARS AEVI Contemporary Art Museum in Sarajevo, the Biennale of Venice, the Cyber Art Museum of Seattle, the Kunsthaus of Zurich, the Durini Contemporary Art Collection, the Bibliotèque Nationale of Paris and the MART - Modern Art Museum of Rovereto and Trento among others. His works are also included in the Universalis Encyclopaedia (Britannica) since 1991, in the Sloninsky Baker’s Music Dictionary (Berkeley), the Charles Hall’s Chronology of the Western Classical Music, as well as in the All Music Guide – The Expert's Guide to the Best Cds among others. He collaborated with John Cage, as commissioned composer for Merce Cunningham, from 1985 until his disappearance in 1992. He remained composer for Merce Cunningham in New York until his disappearance in 2009. His philosophical essays and books have been regularly published in England, the United States, Japan, the Netherlands, Portugal, Brazil, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy and Spain. In the early 1980s Emanuel Pimenta coined the concept “virtual architecture”, later largely used as specific discipline in universities all over the world. Since the end of the 1970s he has developed graphical musical notations inside virtual environments. In the 1980s, Pimenta created new concepts like sensorial design, nanodecision systems, and neognostics among others.
