Techno, house, garage or hip hop: electronic music is a driving force in pop culture today. Almost forgotten is its origins in the post-war classical avant-garde of Europe, with figures such as Pierre Schaeffer and Karlheinz Stockhausen. This 2021 documentary is the story of how rooms full of bizarre equipment were able to become miraculous places whose vibrations set the whole world abuzz. The film traces the history of electronic music from Europe to the great post-industrial cities of America, with exclusive interviews and little-seen archive footage.
