Brian Eno, né Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno le 15 mai 1948 à Woodbridge (Suffolk, Angleterre), est un musicien, arrangeur et producteur britannique.

Biography

Titulaire d'un diplôme de l'école des Beaux-Arts de Winchester, il s'intéresse à l'art conceptuel, à la sculpture sonore et aux travaux musicaux de John Cage, John Tilbury, et de Steve Reich, dont il s'inspire pour ses premières expérimentations faites au magnétophone.

Il rejoint différents groupes (Merchant Taylor's Simultaneous Cabinet, Maxwell Demon, Cardew's Scratch Orchestra, Portsmouth Sinfonia) avant d'intégrer, en 1971, Roxy Music en tant qu'ingénieur du son et où il joue du synthétiseur EMS VCS3 avec lequel il retraite tout ce que joue le groupe. Mais une incompatibilité d'humeur et d'intérêts avec le chanteur Bryan Ferry le pousse à quitter le groupe en 1973. Commence alors une carrière toujours poussée vers la recherche, l'expérimentation, l'ouverture à toutes les formes de musique et d'art.

Il travaille avec Robert Fripp (guitariste et fondateur du groupe King Crimson) sur (No Pussyfooting) puis enregistre son premier album solo, Here Come The Warm Jets, qui se classe dans le top 30 notamment grâce à Seven Deadly Finns. Après une année 1974 passée à se rétablir d'une grosse opération chirurgicale, il part à San Francisco où il enregistre Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy, publié en 1975. Il est crédité aux enossifications (c'est-à-dire traitement du son) sur The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway de Genesis en 1975.

Avec Discreet Music et Music for Airports, Eno définit de manière concrète une nouvelle perspective musicale : l'ambient, une musique très réfléchie, proposant des atmosphères très minimalistes, parfois sombres, parfois froides qui peut aussi bien se prêter à une écoute attentive que distraite. Music for Airports a été conçu en Allemagne avec l'ingénieur du son Conny Plank (qui a travaillé auprès de Kraftwerk, Neu!, Cluster...). Robert Wyatt (ex Soft Machine) intervient au piano sur Music for Airports. Après un bref retour à la pop (Before and After Science), un travail avec Harmonia (Michael Rother, Dieter Moebius et J.Roedelius) et un travail avec le groupe allemand Cluster, Eno entame une carrière de producteur renommé et respecté.

En 1977, il publie une compilation de divers groupes expérimentaux du Lower East Side. Baptisée No New York, cette compilation est considérée comme l'acte fondateur du courant musical no wave.

De 1977 à 1979, il collabore avec David Bowie sur les trois disques Low, "Heroes" et Lodger (souvent appelés la Trilogie berlinoise).

Durant cette période, il collabore également avec Talking Heads et produit les albums More Songs about Buildings and Food (1978), Fear of Music (1979) et Remain in Light (1980).

En 1980, en collaboration avec David Byrne, il publie un concept album, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, sur lequel il mélange musique pop, musique ethnique et collages (la technique du sampling est alors naissante).

En 1984, il pousse encore plus loin son expérimentation ambient et publie Thursday Afternoon un morceau de plus d'une heure, bénéficiant d'un tout nouveau support : le CD. Il participe également avec le groupe Toto à la composition de la bande-son du film Dune réalisé par David Lynch (d'après l'œuvre de Franck Herbert).

Il continue son travail de producteur.

En 1992, il publie Nerve Net avec lequel il montre qu'il est en phase avec les sonorités hip-hop de son époque.

En 1995, Eno retrouve son ami David Bowie pour la production et l'écriture de l'album 1. Outside, qui marqua le retour des deux compères sur le devant de la scène rock.

In 1954, two U.S. Marshals - Edward "Teddy" Daniels and his new partner, Chuck Aule - travel to the Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane on Shutter Island located in Boston Harbor as part of an investigation into the disappearance of patient Rachel Solando, incarcerated for drowning her three children. The sole clue is a note left by Solando, which reads: "The law of 4; who is 67?" Shortly after arrival, a storm prevents their return to the mainland for several days. Daniels finds the staff confrontational: the lead psychiatrist, Dr. John Cawley, refuses to hand over records of the hospital staff; Solando's doctor, Dr. Lester Sheehan, had left on vacation after her disappearance, and they are barred from searching Ward C and told that the lighthouse on the island has already been searched, so there is no need to search it. When a patient is being interrogated by Daniels, with a subterfuge she sends Aule away for a few seconds and scribbles "RUN" in Daniels' notepad.

In Cambridge, three animal liberation activists break into a medical research laboratory with the intent of freeing captive chimpanzees. They are interrupted by a scientist, who desperately warns them that the chimps are infected with a highly contagious rage-inducing virus that is spread through blood and saliva. Ignoring the scientist's pleas, the activists release a chimpanzee, who attacks one of them and immediately infects her — leading her to attack and infect everyone else present.

Awkward, lanky, and self-loathing, Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann) is a senior at Pittsburgh's Schenley High School who appears to drift through life while only seeming to broadly associate himself with the various cliques within Schenley's halls. He learns that a fellow student and former childhood friend of his, Rachel Kushner (Olivia Cooke), has been diagnosed with leukemia, and is forced by his overbearing parents (Nick Offerman and Connie Britton) to befriend her in her time of need. Despite neither of them truly wanting the other's company, Greg manages to strike up a conversation about her pillow collection. She finds his quirky personality endearing, and they make plans to meet on a regular basis.

Žižek appears transplanted into the scenes of various movies, exploring and exposing how they reinforce prevailing ideologies. As the ideologies undergirding cinematic fantasies are revealed, striking associations emerge: from nuns advising following your desires at The Sound of Music to the political dimensions of Jaws. Taxi Driver, Zabriskie Point, The Searchers, The Dark Knight, John Carpenter’s They Live (“one of the forgotten masterpieces of the Hollywood Left”), Titanic, Kinder Surprise eggs, verité news footage, the emptiness of Beethoven’s "Ode to Joy", and propaganda epics from Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia all inform Žižek’s psychoanalytic-cinematic argument.

The film opens with a scene of Paris as night falls, before moving on to a journey through the city streets ("Unknown Caller"). At the end of the trip through Paris, a motorcycle cop (Taghmaoui) sits on his police-issued motorcycle, staring at some graffiti on a wall which reads "Fuck the Police" in French. Kicking his bike over, he pours gasoline on it, sets it alight, and watches it burn ("Breathe"). As dawn breaks, he gets on his own motorcycle and begins his journey through the French countryside before crossing into Spain, aiming to see his girlfriend in Tripoli ("Winter"). Pulling off for a break part-way through the journey, the cop lies on his back and watches a cloud form the image of the African continent before falling asleep ("White as Snow"). Waking up, he resumes his journey across Spain ("No Line on the Horizon").
