Independent documentary I Dream Of Wires traces the history, demise, and eventually rebirth of one of the most influential machines in electronic music: the modular synthesizer. The film will be released on DVD in July and digitally August—with a world premiere in Berlin on July 28.
I Dream Of Wires explores the early development of modular synthesizers in the '60s, the 1970s heyday, its almost extinction in the '80s, and the phenomenal resurgence in modern day electronic music. Interviewing artists such as Carl Craig, James Holden, Jimmy Edgar, and Trent Reznor, filmmakers Robert Fattinatto and Jason Amm provide great insight into the mindset and studios of some of electronic music's modular masters.
I Dream Of Wires will be released on DVD on July 31 via Cargo Distribution and Amazon, and digitally on August 10 via iTunes and Vimeo On Demand.
