Forever VoicelessDirector Gary Hustwit's new documentary film Eno is getting a soundtrack album. Released by UMR on 19th April (or 7th June in North America and Mexico), the official soundtrack is a retrospective of Eno's career with 17 tracks – 14 from earlier albums, plus 3 previously unreleased, including "Lighthouse #429" which can be played now.

The album is Eno's first on the UMR label (Universal Music Recordings, which is responsible for Universal Music UK's catalogue; as its Instagram description helpfully explains, "We drive the continued cultural impact of our songs & artists"). It will be available on CD, digitally, or double LP with two vinyl options – recycled black, or pink and white vinyl (direct sales only).

Attention, Residents of the British Sector: the Eno film will have its UK premiere at the Barbican cinema in London on Saturday 20th April at 8pm, followed by a conversation with Brian Eno, Gary Hustwit and Brendan Dawes.

Paul Stolper Gallery has launched Turntable II, a follow-up to Eno's original colour-changing Turntable. The new Turntable II has a circular base (and platter, obviously), each of which the press release says "change[s] colours independently, seamlessly phasing through combinations of generative ‘colourscapes’. The pattern of lights, the speed at which they change and how they change are programmed, but programmed to change randomly and slowly. It plays both 33 and 45rpm vinyl." Former Roxy Music member Brian Eno says: "When it doesn’t have to do anything in particular, like play a record, it is a sculpture ... It’s the softness of these colours and the way they merge with each other that is so seductive". The edition is limited to 150 dansettes and starts at £20,000 (plus VAT) each with the price increasing as numbers decrease in that mysterious art-world way. You can at least window-shop by gawping at it in the gallery from until 9th March.


Brian Eno's Face to Face installation is running from 22nd to 25th February at North Warehouse, Aviva Studios, Water Street, Manchester M3 4JQ. It's part of the four-day Fête of Britain event. Brian will also participate in the Sunday Service on 25th February in the South Warehouse with Jarvis Cocker.

After that, Brian's off to the A Greener Future Conference for the EarthPercent Hour (also with Jarvis Cocker) on 27th February, then AVA London. It's a wonder he gets any composing done!


Following its acclaimed premiere at Sundance, the generative Eno film will be shown in numerous locations worldwide over the coming months, as well as the London date mentioned above. US dates announced so far are May 1 at New York's SVA Theater, May 4 at Los Angeles' Alex Theatre, May 5 at SIFF Cinema Downtown in Seattle, May 8 at Portland Oregon's Tomorrow Theater, May 10 at San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts Theater, and May 23 at The Music Box in Chicago. Each of these showings will be created "in real time, custom tailored to each audience", Gary Hustwit says on his Chance Operations Substack blog. According to a reply to an Instagram comment, "There are no plans for a physical release (the film is different every time it’s shown). No streaming platform has the technology yet to stream Eno, but we’re working on it!" EnoWeb says: What about a CD-ROM with QuickTime video? They're all the rage these days.

Gary Hustwit's documentary film ENO will get its world premiere on 18th January at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. There will be three further screenings in Park City and one in Salt Lake City. Although some Sundance films can be viewed online, these screenings are in-person only. The film description says:

Hustwit and creative technologist Brendan Dawes have developed a bespoke generative software designed to sequence scenes and create transitions out of Hustwit’s original interviews with Eno, and Eno’s rich archive of hundreds of hours of never-before-seen footage, and unreleased music. Each screening of Eno is unique, presenting different scenes, order, music, and meant to be experienced live.

There will be further screenings worldwide and a streaming release at some stage.
