IN-EDIT is back! From 13 to 23 April the fifth edition of the music documentary festival takes place at the Melkweg. Again many great music films will be screened this year, like this documentary about the German krautrock band CAN.

What does 'sound' mean? What does 'silence' mean? An intimate presentation of the life and work of Irmin Schmidt, founder of the German band CAN, whose individual style shaped generations of musicians in pop and electronic music. The film follows his path from being a classical conductor to being a pupil of famous composers Karl-Heinz Stockhausen and György Ligeti, from CAN, his work on film scores, opera, and finally, his love for electronic club music. The film thrives especially on its cinematic value, embedding footage of a time that now, with its inclination to eccentricity and musical adventures, seems colourful and crazy.
