This is a documentary about UK's leading experimental music festival that is happening in Glasgow. Through the festival's organizers Barry and Bryony but mostly through the musicians taking part and their work, we experience the 'experimental world'. We meet a cast of pioneering, provocative spirits (musicians, artists, writers, poets) who exist outside the mainstream and don't conform.
We hook up with a group of the most original, essential and legendary musicians of free jazz, noise, minimalism or improvisation such as the Austrian organ player and famous artist Hermann Nitsch or the famous vocalist Joan La barbara who has been the work partner of the pioneer of experimental sound, John Cage. We meet with the Japanese representatives of minimalistic music who explain how they produce sounds with mini FM radio transmitters or with the input signals of transformed mixing desks. We also meet conceptual poets and radical thinkers and ask them what it is that really inspires them, what's right at the core of what they do?
I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I
am frightened of the old ones.
