EN - Serial Drummer Girls is a project by video artist Koen Theys based on a live performance by 30 young female extras, including percussionists and singers. In this film, Theys tries to interweave sound and image as naturally as possible. To achieve this, he works with ChampdAction, a production platform with years of experience in setting up multidisciplinary, experimental sound projects.

Serial Drummer Girls is the final part of a film trilogy in which music forms the constant thread. The first part, Death Fucking Metal, starts with rock and heavy metal music. In part II, My Dragon Brother, Chinese opera music is central, while the final part, Serial Drummer Girls, revolves around Western atonal, modern classical music. The musical forms still exist, but their originally relevant content and contexts have been lost. They have become empty zombie-like shells and it is for this reason that they can together be called the ‘zombie trilogy’.
