WE DON’T CARE ABOUT MUSIC ANYWAY

Original Soundtrack – Bande Originale

With Sakamoto Hiromichi, Otomo Yoshihide, Yamakawa Fuyuki, L?K?O, Numb, Saidrum, Kirihito, Umi no Yeah!!, Goth-Trad

Bruit Blanc et Studio Shaiprod s’associent pour sortir en Europe la bande originale du film qui avait déjà été éditée au Japon en janvier 2011 à l’occasion de la sortie en salle du film.
Le projet “We don’t Care About Music Anyway…” est celui d’un film documentaire sur la scène de musique improvisée extrème de Tokyo.
Entre novembre 2007 et février 2008, nous avons filmé la majorité des performances des musiciens dans les clubs de la capitale japonaise.
Dans le cadre du tournage, nous avons également invité les musiciens à improviser dans des lieux extraordinaires. Sakamoto Hiromichi a fait jaillir les souvenirs enfouis d’une école abandonnée de chichibu, Otomo Yoshihide a fait trembler les métaux de l’usine de recyclage Re-tem, Numb et Saidrum ont jonglé avec le beat et ses échos dans les vastes galleries souterraines de chika shinden.
Nous avons aussi tendu l’oreille pour écouter la musique de la ville, son trafic incessant, ses voix amplifiées disséminés dans l’espace, ses musiques d’ambiance…
Voici l’essentiel des sources qui composent la bande son du film.
L’une des idées fondatrices du projet de film était que le son puisse s’écouter indépendamment des images, cette bande originale en est l’aboutissement.

Bruit Blanc and Studio Shaiprod join each others for the european release of the sound track of the film.
“We Don’t Care About Music Anyway…” is a documentary about the underground avant-garde music scene in Tokyo.  In November of 2007 and February of 2008 we filmed the majority of the musician’s performances in Japan’s capital city.
During filming, we got to capture the raw improvised creations of these musicians in their element. Sakamoto Hiromichi filled the spaces of an abandoned school, breathing life into it once more.  The sounds of Otomo Yohihide resonated through the metal of a Re-tem recycling factory and Numb and Saidrum infused their beat’s reverberations into the vast emptiness of underground chambers.
We acquired an ear to hear this unconventional definition of what people know as music. The music ranges from the life of the city, the cacophony of traffic, the amplified voices, the echo of forgotten space all comprising background music for a people.
One of our hopes for this film was that the music and images could be enjoyed independently of each other.  The soundtrack is the embodiment of that goal.
