, written and directed by Nicolas Humbert and Werner Penzel
(amazon link). It is also available in 8 parts, on youtube.
The music is beautiful, ugly, sublime, silly, virtuosic and clumsy, catchy and difficult.
Follow Fred Frith around the world as he makes music with his friends, and finds
other things to listen to as well.
Many of the musicians in this film are worth hours of listening on their own.
(much of his music, including some of his collaborations with Frith, are creative commons licensed downloads on his site).
