Synopsis

Low budget German cult classic based on the writings of William S. Burroughs, featuring a cameo from the great author himself. FM (FM Einheit) is a young musician who discovers that certain sonic frequencies can induce different patterns of behaviour in listeners. Whilst going in search of new sounds, he stumbles upon a sinister band of pirates conducting a black mass in a subway. As he tries to record the gathering, he is caught and thrown before a tribunal. This surreal exploration of the political implications of sound features music from Dave Ball, Genesis P.Orridge, Einsturzende Neubauten and The The.
