I Dream of Wires: A documentary on the history of electronic music #MusicMonday

Thanks to Anthony for sending this in – check out more here.

Waveshaper Media presents a film by Robert Fantinatto and Jason Amm

I DREAM OF WIRES (2014)

I Dream Of Wires is an independent documentary about the history, demise and resurgence of the modular synthesizer – exploring the dreams and obsessions of people who have dedicated part of their lives to this fascinating, esoteric electronic music machine. Over 100 inventors, musicians and enthusiasts are interviewed about their relationship with the modular synthesizer – for many, it’s an all-consuming passion.

Through tracing the history of the modular synthesizer, I Dream Of Wires also outlines the history of electronic music as a whole, from its very beginnings at the dawn of the electric age. The film provides a fascinating look at how technology has shaped the electronic music landscape. Today, the modular synthesizer is no longer an esoteric curiosity or even a mere music instrument – it is an essential tool for radical new sounds and a bona fide subculture.

Interviews include:

  • Legendary electronic musicians: Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Morton Subotnick, Gary Numan, Vince Clarke (Erasure), cEvin Key (Skinny Puppy).
  • Contemporary dance & electronica artists: Carl Craig, James Holden, Legowelt.
  • Synthesizer manufacturers: Doepfer, Modcan, Make Noise, Intellijel, Metasonix.
