From radical turntablism (Otomo Yoshihide) to laptop music innovation (Numb), via classical instrument hijacking (Sakamoto Hiromichi), Tokyo's avant-garde music scene is internationally known for its boldness. While introducing some of the greatest musicians of this scene, the film We Don't Care About Music Anyway... offers a kaleidoscopic view of Tokyo, confronting music and noise, sound and image, reality and representation, documentary and fiction. Beyond the music and beyond its performance, the future and mode of existence of a city, and society as a whole, are in motion.
Inspired by his first encounter with traditional Rajasthani music, Cédric Dupire made his debut in 2005 with Musafir, the first in a series of documentaries questioning the link between music and its environment. This he followed with L'homme qu'il faut à la place qu'il faut (2008), a portrait of the celebrated Guinean djembe player Fadouba Oularé. We Don't Care About Music Anyway… is his third film. Born in 1981, Gaspard Kuentz entered the Film School of Tokyo in 2003, directing the short film Chinpira Is Beautiful in 2005, before joining Cédric Dupire to make this first documentary feature.
