Storyline

A gang in a Volvo have staked out a flat; when its occupants leave to walk their dog, the six break into the place. One keeps his eyes on a stopwatch: they have only ten minutes before the couple returns. Instead of stealing things, the gang goes from room to room making fascinating percussive music with found objects: first in the kitchen, then the bedroom, the bathroom, and the salon. Cabinet doors, pot lids, light switches, a pill dispenser, a lamp, books, and a vacuum cleaner hose all add to the suite in four movements. The drummers keep the first three rooms tidy, but what will the flat's occupants make of the hurricane that hits the living room? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Cool, clever, inventive and funky
20 April 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When an elderly couple leave their apartment to walk the dog, a team of 6 very serious looking people enter the apartment on a strict time scale. The group proceed from kitchen to bedroom to bathroom to front room, using everything they find to create different patterns of beats and grooves.

I didn't have a clue what this was about when I watched it. At the start I assumed that the group were criminals or something the way they all dressed like cops from the Sweeney and walked with menace. However when they all got into the flat and began using things like blenders, toothpaste, pills etc to make beats I got into it real easy.

I was actually doing my ironing when watching this (a bit sad and domesticated!) and the beats are so good I actually began to bop to them! My favourite was the heavy baseline that they got off a stretched out condom!

The range of objects they use is inventive – but what makes it better is how good the beats sound. They are really funky….I thought that it would get old after a few minutes – but the beats kept me riveted for the whole 10 minutes. The ending is kinda cool but the short is really all about the beats!

Overall – different, clever, inventive, funky. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good beat.
