CAN and Me

by Michael P. Aust, Tessa Knapp Sounds

In 1968, musician Irmin Schmidt and friends founded the avant-garde band "Can", which achieved worldwide fame thanks to hits such as "Vitamin C" and "She Brings The Rain". Because of their experimental, spur-of-the-moment sound, they were soon considered revolutionary and left their mark on generations of musicians. Schmidt also made a name for himself as a composer for films by Wim Wenders. In the documentary CAN AND ME, the charismatic sound tinkerer looks back on his life and career. The result is an ode to the unconventionality, spontaneity and vision of an extraordinary musician.
