This film will investigate the prolific musical period that begins in the middle of the 1960s and continues to the beginning of the 21st century: a half a century of music history in the United States and UK.
This motion picture won't be the portrait of the person who'll serve as the "leitmotif" of this survey - even if this film will be based on the passionate viewpoints of Daniel Caux, who at the same time is a musicologist, essayist, activist, radioman, promoter and friend of the musicians who will be the subject of this film -, but rather the portrait of a particularly astounding era.
Daniel Caux unfailing commitment has furthered the convergence, intersection and connection between so called "scholarly" music and popular music from the western world, whether it be music by chance, or minimalism music, or jazz, or techno, or Arabic music. Inquisitive and ahead of his time, he has continuously worked to promote and gain acceptance for these "revolutionary" musical styles from their very inception.
Therefore, this story will essentially take place in the United States and UK. Numerous archival images of these revolutionary moments, always controversial when they first happen, will be coupled with recent footage, shot on location, using the actors essential to these various aesthetic movements.
