Director: Peter Liechti
Swiss musicians Koch-Schütz-Studer turn a 30-day music marathon into a cinematic piece of chamber music. Their album, Hardcore Chambermusic, is a music publishing phenomena that has taken Switzerland by storm. This documentary gives audiences an insight into the artists at work during an epic month of music making. Koch-Schütz-Studer sampled and compressed hundreds of pieces of music from sources as diverse as Bartók and Berio to Public Enemy and Bob Marley in order to create something revolutionary and altogether new - hardcore chambermusic.
