The film follows Bill Drummond, an anarchic punk spirit, in his search of new voices for his choir, formed by a group of amateurs who don’t rehearse or know how to read music. It’s a journey to the ground zero of music that innocently allows us to re-invent it.
If we said that the nineties were Bill Drummond’s, we would be exaggerating a little, but there’s no such thing as hyperbole when referring to the co-founder of the famous situationist cell known as the KLF. Owners of an inexplicable control over their own destiny, the KLF triumphed when they decided it was time and, after merely 24 months, they put an end to their career in a heroic, unprecedented imploding process. More than two decades later, Drummond is back in business after forming The 17, an impossible choir built up randomly during a trip across the UK. His goal: creating a symphony that would not be recorded or heard by anyone outside The 17. And all of this comes from an irresistible premise: imagining waking up tomorrow and all music has disappeared. FG
