"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Robert Fripp

"Le rôle de l'artiste créateur est de créer des lois, non pas de suivre celles qui sont déjà faites"
Ferruccio Busoni

"Go, go, go! ... Go! go! ..."
John Lee Hooker


White noise


Written and directed by Olivier Assayas, the masterpiece movie "Irma Vep" tells the story of a French filmmaker René Vidal (played by the inimitable french actor Jean Pierre Léaud) who decides to remake "Les Vampires", the 1916's classic silent movie "Les vampires" by Louis Feuillade.

Using silence, white noise as well short excerpts of neo-punk music, the end of the movie is a brillant avant-garde collage in which the remarkable actress Maggie Cheung slinks through a barrage of slashes, designs and white noise.
A pure jewel.
