Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present

Tony Conrad was an avante-garde film maker and musician, and is credited as being the pioneer of drone music.

This documentary, released just before his death in April last year, looks at his career and has plenty of footage and interviews. Tony himself basically narrates the whole thing, along with other people I had never heard of before, except John Cale and Moby.

Quite interesting stuff, and Tony was a funny guy in his own way. He despised art galleries.

Not too shabby at all.
