It's loud, it's funny and surprising: you have to run with your ears wide open, to see or rather listen to "sound of noise".
This Swedish movie follows a "musical terrorist" band , which takes some urban environments over for a while and turn them into songs. The result is astonishing, the creativity amazing and the form represent a Dantesque mixing and body of work.
Because we can really hear the rhythm and the music when those unusual percussionists play..electric cords, shovellermechanical shovel and oxygen cord!!Really deep!
