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.

The atmospheres created by Brian Eno carry this distinctive and lesser-known thriller by Peter Jackson, in which a dead 14-year-old girl follows the grief of her family from heaven while helping to retaliate against the pedophile who murdered her. The soundtrack of Eno’s 1970s works and new material is a great example of his ability to create different spaces and atmospheres with his music.
