Synopsis
This is a film about making music: at all age levels and beyond established standards of quality. The title recalls the Fairy Tale about the Town Musicians of Bremen that set out to find a better life: Donkey, Dog, Cat, and Cock – standing for the most diverse ways to create and experience music together. The film shows amateur musicians who spend their free time with music – in choirs, band, ensembles, and in individual lessons. It shows the work, the practice in keeping the beat, in hitting the notes right, as well as wrong. The camera takes it’s time and observes what music makes of human beings. “Behind music-making, this uselessness…there really is an utopia. Something that’s not lived,” a participant aptly states.
