Six guerrilla percussionists terrorise a city with their anarchic public performances in this inspired comic gem from Swedish directors Ola Simonsson and Johannes Stjärne Nilsson. Sound of Noise offers a wonderful extension of the cult short Music For One Apartment and Six Drummers as the everyday sounds and paraphernalia of city life are employed to create symphonies of chaos. There are elements of the Marx Brothers and the world of Jean-Pierre Jeunet in the story of a tone-deaf police officer on a mission to silence the six drummers using everything from a hospital operating room to heavy machinery and power lines to create their unforgettable sound. Silly, hilarious and utterly sublime, Sound of Noise has cult potential in every note. Part of Glasgow Music & Film Festival
