Shot live in concert at Loft in Cologne on March 14, 2008, this film shows the band Speak Easy during one of their première performances documented on the Backchats CD.

Phil Minton’s sonorous voice is capable of producing disturbing sound collages, whereas Ute Wassermann’s polyphonic technique makes the room resonate with harmonics. Coupled with Blume’s finely nuanced percussive work and Thomas Lehn’s extraordinary analogue synthesizer sounds, a physical immediacy of rare intensity is achieved. Speak Easy is an organism rather than an ensemble, grown out of high musical competence and full of creative energy.” — Hannes Schneider
