Known as a visual artist, pop music producer and as a pioneer of ambient music, Brian Eno has a special ability to create spaces and atmospheres with his music. The technology- and future-oriented authors movie soundtracks were published in a collection called Film Music 1976-2020 in 2020. The film series, which is curated on the basis of the collection, reflects Eno’s diversity: moving fluently from experimental fiction to thrillers, and from glamrock to documentary. The series is a part of the Helsinki Festival programme.
