Over the past 50 years, German composer Helmut Lachenmann has shaped contemporary music worldwide with his "noise music" – in which violinists use all parts of their instruments, trumpeters crackle with baking paper, and water-filled horns are played. The award-winning documentary approaches this music and its captivating protagonist in a very personal, engaging and often humorous way.
