Imagine waking up tomorrow morning and all music has
disappeared. Just like that. What will remain when it is
all gone: Cd’s, iPods, instruments? When we don’t know
anymore what it was: music? He shows it to us: Bill
Drummond, the man who with The KLF once conquered
the world of pop. An anarchic spirit, an eternal punk who
now leads the largest choir of the world: The17, an ever
changing ensemble of amateurs with no sheets of music
and no rehearsals. Stefan Schwietert (Echoes of Home)
accompanies Drummond as he finds new voices for his
choir: in the open fields or in a factory, in a class room
or in a pub. It is a journey to point zero of music. So we
can innocently invent it again. Together, in this moment.
