Live documentary & post-film conversation

Brian Eno disrupted by a pattern of geometric shapes

The UK premiere of Eno with live generative film screening and post-film conversation with Brian Eno, Gary Hustwit and Brendan Dawes.

For the past five decades, visionary musician, producer & artist Brian Eno has been at the forefront of artistic innovation and technology. Eno reveals his creative processes in this groundbreaking new documentary, a film that’s different every time it’s shown. 

Filmmaker Gary Hustwit and digital artist Brendan Dawes have developed a bespoke generative software that dynamically combines original interviews with Eno’s rich archive of unreleased footage and music. The result? Each screening is unique, presenting different scenes, order & music. Hustwit and Dawes will create the film live on-stage, and the version you see here will never be seen again. 

The infinite quality of Eno resonates with the artist’s own creative practice and methods of using technology to compose music & his endless deep dive into the mercurial essence of creativity.
