Take a journey with director Adam Bhala Lough and Hot Sugar as they discover new kinds of sounds from random objects all over the world. The inspiration behind this film was in creating new kinds of sounds to use in modern music. From the trailer, this documentary looks like a fun adventure of musical proportions. The film is executive produced by David Gordon Green, Danny McBride and Jody Hill.
The official synopsis reads: “‘Hot Sugar’s Cold World’ is a fly-on-the-wall look into the life of a modern-day Mozart, Nick Koenig (Hot Sugar), as he creates one-of-a-kind music made entirely out of sounds from the world around him. Nick lives every young musician’s dream, but when his internet-famous girlfriend goes on tour and they split, he flies to Paris where he grew up to move on with his life, while hunting for increasingly unique and exotic sounds to sample and turn into beats.”
The doc includes appearances by former members of Das Racist, legendary filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson and comedian Martin Starr.
The film will be released on November 6 in theaters and iTunes with special live performances to follow across the U.S. and Canada.
