VMI has shared with Dread Central the artwork and teaser for Alex Noyer’s directorial debut feature thriller Sound of Violence which was recently re-titled from Conductor.
Sound of Violence expands on the universe introduced by Noyer’s award-winning short film Conductor, which toured festivals worldwide in 2018-2019. Check out the stunning trailer and read more about the movie below.
Haunted by childhood trauma, Alexis (Jasmin Savoy Brown) composes music through torture and pain. As a child, the brutal murder of her family made her regain her previously-lost hearing along with synesthetic abilities. Now as an adult, she’s told she might lose her hearing again, so she escalates her gruesome sound experiments in a quest to compose her masterpiece. Her supportive roommate Marie (Lili Simmons) becomes the unknowing acolyte to her destructive process.
Sound of Violence stars: Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers, For the people, Yellow Jackets), who was recently announced as part of the Scream 5 cast, Lili Simmons (Bone Tomahawk, Ray Donovan, Banshee), and James Jagger (Vinyl, JT LeRoy).
Prolific producer Alex Noyer is best known for 808, the acclaimed documentary about the legendary Roland TR-808 drum machine which premiered at SXSW in 2015 and was the first film to premiere on Apple Music.
“Conductor was the right title for my short because of its specific story and the way Alexis related to her creation,” says Noyer. “The feature is however an expansion on Alexis’ universe and addresses more broadly her journey, focus and motivations. Sound Of Violence tells of how her life interacts with its brutal soundtrack.”
The artwork was created by Colm Geoghegan (@creepyduckdesign) whose recent fan art for Scream 5 went viral. The teaser was cut by the film’s Producer and editor Hannu Aukia.
“After being introduced to Colm’s work with his Scream fan art that went viral, we reached out and he really grasped the essence of the movie and its main characters,” Noyer explains. “It celebrates the character Jasmin Savoy Brown so beautifully brought to life but also illustrates the make up of her microcosm.”
“I feel releasing a teaser is extremely daunting for a director because there is so much more I would like to share. I cannot wait to introduce Alexis’ twisted artistic journey in full to our audiences.”
The film is produced by Hannu Aukia of No Office (Someone Somewhere, My Brother’s Keeper) and Alex Noyer of You Know Films (808, New York Influence City) with Mike Macari (Rings, Fractured, The Ring) on board as executive producer.
