In 2008 Brian Eno and David Byrne made, ‘Everything That Happens Happen Will Happen Today’. Following on from that Hillman Curtis made a documentary interviewing both Eno and Byrne in their separate workspaces; capturing their conversations about parts of their songs and, in keeping with the album’s DIY promotional ethos, let them photograph one another. He also showed them doing what they do best when not making, creating: cycling, in Byrne’s case and looking pensively through windows in Eno’s.
There is not a music documentary as such rather Curtis concentrates on capturing each mans idiosyncracies and ability to articulate when talking about the process of making and creating music. An ability which has earned both of them nearly 40 years of status as cerebral popular music icons.
What you have here is a fascinating documentary on two incredible artists talking about their collaboration, how they work and how the internet enabled them to create what was to become ‘Everything That Happens Happen Will Happen Today’. Enjoy it
