Nuit et brouillard. (1955) German born film composer (who
after being deported from the United States in 1948, wrote the East
German national anthem) studied at the Vienna Conservatory before
spending time as a student of Schönberg's. Eisler worked with
Brecht in Germany before leaving in 1933 for Holland, England, France
and the USSR. Eisler was a modernist avant-garde composer whose Marxism
was one of the reasons for his deportation from the U.S. after being an
'unfriendly witness' to the House of Un-American Activities Committee
(McCarthy). Her he continued his film work and in 1947 co-wrote
Composing for the Films with Theodor W. Adorno, one of the most
influential philosophers and cultural critics of this century.
