In the film and in conversation, Murphy is ever aware of his comparatively advanced age. At its most basic level, his rejection of the rock & roll lifestyle is a question of self-preservation. Every time he tours, Murphy says in the film, he returns with markedly more gray hair.

Not that he has exactly been a homebody since the days chronicled in the film. He went to Sundance to promote this movie and another, The Comedy, in which he acts. He went to London to work on the Shut Up sound mix. He has myriad projects in some state of development, including a boutique in Brooklyn and a disco-themed exhibit at MOCA's Geffen Contemporary, scheduled to open in fall of 2013. "I don't know quite what my role is," Murphy admits. He adds dryly, "I can't compare it to my previous curatorial work."

In Shut Up's morning after, Murphy notes that he feels "disturbingly normal" — he hasn't had time to process. And now that he has had a year?
