“New age, new form, new music” was Jan Kapr’s personal manifesto. As an initially committed and then ostracised communist, the controversial avant-garde composer was caught between two stools his whole life. The renowned filmmaker Lucie Králová has created an extraordinary sound art portrait in his honour, that makes you sit up and listen in the truest sense of the word. Simon Hauck
