Film review: Eno
Uncut Magazine
by John Robinson
2h ago
An excellent new “generative” documentary In the opening scene of this hugely enjoyable Brian Eno doc, we find the composer/polymath bopping around in his home studio, thinking about a composition like an ecosystem. As he works, we see him add weather, and even an animal population to his piece. Eventually he tweaks some controls on his screen to alter the prospect of change – how probable it is that a musical phrase will occur again.  Eno’s “generative” – evolving, infinitely changing – way of making music has been the guiding principle for Gary Hustwit’s film.

3d ago
Nirvana‘s ambition, Dave Grohl tells Uncut’s Graeme Thomson in this new magazine, was to sell as many records as Sonic Youth and maybe be able to make enough money for the members of Nirvana to get their own apartments.  Of course, what happened with Nevermind surpassed that ambition, to put it mildly. When the album was released in autumn 1991, it sold enough copies for the band to be able to buy apartments for themselves, and in principle, one for everyone they’d ever met besides. Anyone acquainted with the Nirvana story will be aware of the complex and ultimately fatal relationship tha ..read more
