Storyline

BEAUTIFUL NOISE is an in-depth exploration of a music movement in the late twentieth century, a fascinating period when some innovative musicians mixed guitar noise into conventional pop song structures while maintaining a philosophy of letting the music speak for itself. Although many of the people interviewed are notoriously press shy they have opened up about their music and experiences from over 20 years ago, how they defied the rules and became sonic innovators that have inspired so many.

Quotes

Robert Smith: I mean I really fell in love with the whole, with the sound, which kind of like went on, I mean it was as much Liz's voice as Robin's production, the two were kind of like seamless, and I was always really intrigued, they made it sound so effortless, that's what attracted me the most. It was kind of, the first time I'd heard this sort of you know, it was described in various ways. It was ethereal and all the other adjectives but it was really centrist, it kind of drew you in, and effortless, ...

Good, but could have been better
6 December 2014 | by kelligravanoSee all my reviews

Beautiful Noise is a well done documentary on a very specific type of music. I call it dream pop, some call it shoe gaze. All the bands documented are excellent, but I would have liked to hear about all the fans who came to their shows! There are no interviews from every day non famous fans. Also the bands do not talk about touring which to me is an important part of being in a band. There was so much going on in the early 90s cultural landscape, but there isn't too much mentioned about that. My favorite band Curve only gets a minute of mention. There was no mention about how different their music was and how bands like Garbage were influenced by Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia's music skills. I liked this film and watched it three times to get an idea of what more I would have liked to see.
