Melody of Noise

Year
2016
Country
Switzerland, Germany
Duration
86’
Director
Gitta Gsell

The film is a daredevil journey into the realm of noises and sounds, of rhythm and silence. A journey along with those who listen closely and without any reservations. The Gyro Gearlooses of music, those who seek new sounds nobody has ever heard before passionately. They build new instruments, work with everyday drones, and in doing so transform noise into sound. A film that will make you listen with your eyes and see with your ears. Unexpectedly sensual.
