Raindance Film Festival presents Wiebke Pöpel's Helmut Lachenmann - My Way followed by a Q&A.

For fifty years, German composer Helmut Lachenmann has shaped contemporary music with his "noise music" - in which violinists use all parts of their instruments, trumpeters crackle with baking paper, and water-filled horns are played. The film approaches this music and its captivating protagonist in a personal, engaging and humorous way.
