Unconcerned with being caught, the groups' antics draw the attention of the city's top anti-terrorism cop, Amadeus Warnebring. The only member of a prestigious family of famous musicians without any musical talent and disgruntled by a lifetime of feeling inferior, Amadeus channels his hate for music and noise into an unrelenting pursuit of the criminals. With the entire city watching, both sides refuse to quit until their pursuits reach an inescapable crescendo of noise.
