Kick That Habit

Kick That Habit

Documentary, 45 min.


by Peter Liechti

Switzerland, 1989

Drawing on trace elements of Jazz and Arte Povera, Swiss duo Andy Guhl and Norbert Möslang use a range of cracked everyday electronic equipment to create abstract sound environments. Alongside free improvisation, they've devoted over 30 years to obsessively fathoming the potential of generative composition by analogue, non-computer-steered systems for their Voice Crack project. Peter Liechti's film is set to be a music film classic - its artful, cinematically unique sequences transcend the usual parameters of documentary.
