Sound of Noise (3/14, 4:45pm)

“Bonnie And Clyde on drums” – Indiewire

“How can something so simple be so joyful? Maybe that’s the key. Like Jackie Chan, the six drummers in Sound of Noise believe in using everyday objects to make mayhem. As one of them says in a recruiting pitch, ‘it’s dangerous, it’s illegal, and it will change the world’.” — Peter Martin, Twitch

“A brilliant twist on the conventional. This movie is ALL KINDS OF AWESOME” — Rob Hunter,

Springboarding off the ebullient Cannes award-nominated viral short Music For One Apartment and Six Drummers, Sound of Noise takes the concept of the crime drama, and turns it right on its ear. Police officer Amadeus was born into a family with a long history of famous musicians — but is terrified by the thought of music, and must face his fear when a rogue band of anarcho-musicians decides to perform a musical apocalypse, using the entire city as their orchestra. Using every single surface and object they come across as a potential instrument, the six drummers’ jaw-dropping ability to turn everyday locations like a bank branch, a hospital operating room or a construction site into whimsical, crazily inventive and highly earworm-y musical setpieces will leave you with an infectious sense of wonder — and the urge to tap sweet melodies of your own.
Dirs. Ola Simonsson & Johannes Stjärne Nilsson, 2010, HD presentation, 102 min.
