This short experimental movie is excellent audiovisual dialog of two individual musicians - John Cage, composer and writer, and Roland Kirk, original post-bop jazz-man. It's a montage of shots on the town and zoo, Kirk's jazz improvisation in Ronnie Scott's Club and Cage's composing in Saville Theatre. Cage reads from his notes about sound, music and their relations with people and all the movie Kirk's beautiful music sounds (the most wonderful part is collective playing of Kirk and a group of children who play the flutes). The phenomenon of sound inspired both of them and their successful musical attempts reflect the richness of their knowledge.
