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.

Borrowing from David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust -character and more broadly from the glamrock culture of the 1970s, the film takes you into the world of art rock, where Eno began his career as a keyboardist for Roxy Music. Central to the soundtrack are the early songs of Roxy Music / Eno, and the name of the mysteriously lost rock star, Maxwell Demon, whose name is a reference to Eno’s first rock music project.
