It’s 1971 and artistic duo, Paul and Limpe Fuchs, aka Anima-Sound, set off with their two kids on a European tour – at 20mph in a tractor-drawn mobile home. With an improvised set-up comprising drums, wind instruments and electronics they play brachial free Jazz/ Noise improvs at everyday venues badly in need of some culture … such as pedestrian zones in Munich, in front of a miners audience in the Ruhr District, or in the countryside under the stars. This film is a rare and haunting document of some of Krautrock’s outstanding pioneers.

This screening is presented in association with Tim Tetzner’s Handclaps project, an ever-expanding data bank of film and video about musical phenomena, with promotional assistance from CKUW 95.9FM.
