The movie „Step Across the Border“ hit the scene of improvised music in 1990 and almost immediately became a legend
Over the course of two years the filmmakers Nicolas Humbert and Werner Penzel followed musicians like Fred Frith, Tom Cora, John Zorn and Iva Bittová. They traveled the world with them, covered concerts and jam sessions in hotel rooms and outdoors. The result is a movie that is just as virtuously improvised as the music. But only a small portion of the recorded material has made it into the final cut. The original tapes have been stored in a metal box and were almost destroyed by flooding. 30 years later filmmaker Nicolas Humbert and French sound artist Marc Parisotto opened the box again and recomposed the raw material together with Fred Frith into an imaginative journey through many different soundscapes.
