Georg Tiller - Dmd kiu lidt

55:00, 2014, Feature
The group’s cheerful use of a specific kind of bricolage, which pieces together a broad spectrum of literary and theoretical allusions: from Walter Benjamin, over John Cage to Bertolt Brecht, forms their sound and lyrics.
The anti-music film DMD KIU LIDT aims not only to be a chronicle of this very talented group of musicians, but also to create a filmic equivalent to the German term diskurspop (discourse pop). The term loosely describes a music that desires to be a serious and accessible expression of (post-)pop, while it is conscious of being a result of theoretical, literary and social discourse. Diskurspop playfully questions its own foundations and constantly rearranges its influences to create something new out of that which is old, abandoned and ludicrous.

DMD KIU LIDT follows this line of thought, questions the traditional representati- on of music producers in cinema and articulates its own idea of the anti-music film.
