Sometimes the best avant-garde is very similar to the dreams and nightmares of science fiction. This documentary might very well reflect an interesting point of view regarding the sounds and images of that futuristic imagination, by turning Tokyo into a capital city for the extreme experiments made by a group of prodigious Japanese musicians that includes Sakamoto Hiromichi, Otomo Yoshihide, Yamakawa Fuyuki, L?K?O, Numb, Saidrum, Takehisa Ken and Shimazaki Tomoko. Mixing apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic realism with futuristic minimalism, these musicians decompose and question their instruments in order to transform sound-research into a radical and liberating experience. Documentary filmmakers Gaspard Kuentz and Cédric Dupire follow these champions of noise through conversations and performances that sometimes result in quiet introspection, but sometimes are just pure rage; they keep projecting the possibilities of sound destruction, tension, and renewal towards alternative channels, with a visual framing drafted in a way it turns the film screen into the best possible soundboard for every roaring echo.

Parfois la meilleure avant-garde est très similaire aux rêves et cauchemars de la science-fiction. Ce documentaire reflète un point de vue intéressant sur le son et l’image de cet imaginaire futuriste, en transformant Tokyo en laboratoire pour les expériences d’un groupe de prodigieux musiciens japonais, incluant : Sakamoto Hiromichi, Otomo Yoshihide, Yamakawa Fuyuki, L?K?O, Numb, Saidrum, Takehisa Ken et Shimazaki Tomoko. Ces musiciens décomposent et questionnent leurs instruments dans le but de transformer la recherche du son en une expérience radicale et libératrice. Les cinéastes  Gaspard Kuentz et Cédric Duprie suivent ces champions du bruit à travers leurs conversations et leurs prestations qui sont parfois des introspections silencieuses, mais d’autres fois sont pure rage; elles projettent les possibilités de la destruction sonore, avec des visuels cadrés pour maximiser cette expérience auditive.
