A Symphony of Noise – Matthew Herbert’s Revolution
dir. by Enrique Sánchez Lansch
production: Germany 2021
cast: Matthew Herbert
“Symphony of Noise” takes the viewer on a journey into the world of music of Matthew Herbert, a revolutionary British electronic musician, composer and sound designer described as the Brian Eno of the 21st century. An artist known for his political works. He combines music derived from real sounds, such as the sound of a toaster or washing machine, with politically sensitive passages. According to Herbert, music has undergone a revolution and is capable of overthrowing governments. Instead of creating it with instruments, he uses anything that makes a sound, because each sound is unique and carries some meaning. The film opens us to the true essence of sound and teaches us to listen anew. At its core, it develops creativity, because it shows a world we have never known before and most importantly – never heard.
