    Doco: I Dream Of Wires

    Very cool documentary about modular/vintage/modern synths



    Inventors, musicians and enthusiasts are interviewed about their relationship with the modular synthesizer for many, it's an all-consuming passion. Established musicians such as Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Carl Craig and John Foxx show off their systems and explain why they opt to use this volatile but ultimately rewarding technology. Meanwhile, a new generation of dance and electronica artists including Clark, James Holden and Factory Floor explain why they've stepped away from laptops to embrace the sound and physicality of modular synthesizers. Innovative companies like Modcan and Doepfer, driven by a desire to revive modular synthesizers, discuss how they planted the seeds that have now grown into a major cottage industry. What started out as a "vintage-revival scene" in the '90s has grown into an underground phenomena with a growing market of modular obsessives craving ever more wild and innovative sounds and interfaces. 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 bonafide subculture.

    I have only seen small portions of this doco on the web.
    the title has come from a book called I dream of electric sheep and translated by Gary numan to I dream of wires. It was an intesting bit of electronica history also
    wish I could afford a modula synth. but have no cash nor any room in my tent
