a noise documentary about otomo yoshihide who makes noise as a turntablist, guitarist, composer and conductor.

this was overlong and whilst interesting, not particularly well made: dj spooky kept on getting cut off in midsentence and even though it kinda worked to se lots of performances in short bites, then it got annoying to see the same performances again and again – why then not show the complete fragment in one burst?

some of the philosophising was interesting, some rather wanky.

i enjoyed seeing some of yoshihide’s performances – in one he was grindign a needle on a deck and making interesting sounds with effects pedal, in another he smashed up a technic 1210 deck completely!! his power jazz with screaming guitar and two clattering drums was pretty funny.
