Disco and avantgarde come together in Arthur Russell's music. The cellist, who came in from the cold, settled in New York and quickly became a part of the experimental music scene of the 1970s and 1980s. With its unique images from Russell's life, Wild Combination creates a picture of a complex, at times manic personality and his playful music, without which neither Erlend Øye, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy or any other of today's electronica gurus would have achieved what they have today. The film, which brings in Russell’s closest collaborators Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg, explores the compelling cultural history of New York over the last few decades, the experience of being gay and confronting AIDS, and the cathartic process of creating art and pursuing popular success.
