Tënk is 5 years old!


Un documentaire sur le musicien Fred Frith, né en 1949 en Angleterre, avant-gardiste issu de la musique pop, toujours à la recherche de nouveaux sons, de nouvelles musiques qui transgressent les frontières et les classifications. Dans ce film, deux formes d’expression artistique, musique improvisée et cinéma direct, s’entrecroisent. Les réalisateurs ont filmé Fred Frith, ses collaborateurs et ses amis à Londres, à New-York, à Leipzig et au Japon.

Tënk's opinion

This film is already 25 years old and has become a legend. It doesn’t claim to be a comment by the hero on his own work. It is a two-hour musical odyssey in the company of Fred Frith that takes us through the 70s and 80s, bringing out the high points of the movers and shakers on the Anglo-Saxon creative scene. The filmmakers keep us at a distance, making us hungry to see the next step of the way. This film is a work of art in itself, built out of musical sounds and images.
