Brian Eno Unveils ‘Eno’ Documentary Soundtrack, Premieres Exclusive Track

The 'Eno' soundtrack arrives in April

Eno, the groundbreaking documentary exploring the life and artistry of Brian Eno, has been generating buzz since its debut at Sundance earlier this year. Directed by Gary Hustwit, the film promises a unique viewing experience, thanks to its groundbreaking use of generative AI technology. Eno himself expressed his enthusiasm for the project, highlighting the AI-driven approach as a refreshing departure from traditional artist biopics.

I usually can’t stand docu-bios of artists because they are so hagiographic,” Eno remarked, emphasizing the need to avoid clichés and embrace innovation. The documentary’s modular design ensures that each screening offers a fresh perspective, shuffling the sequence of events with subtle variations, akin to a live musical performance.

Hustwit, drawing from his music industry background, envisioned a more dynamic cinematic experience, likening it to the spontaneity of live music. The film seamlessly weaves together Eno’s iconic music with insights into his creative process, offering audiences a captivating journey through his prolific career.
