The theatrical version of modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires is streaming throughout August on Netflix (US only—non-US viewers can head to Vimeo on Demand). The independent film plots the history, demise and resurgence of the modular synthesizer.
I Dream Of Wires includes interviews with modular musicians, inventors and enthusiasts. Featured in the film are Morton Subotnick, Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Gary Numan, Vince Clarke (Erasure), Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle), Daniel Miller, Carl Craig, Flood, Cevin Key (Skinny Puppy), James Holden, Factory Floor, Legowelt, Clark, John Foxx and Bernie Krause and more.
A 4-hour cut of the film, I Dream Of Wires: Hardcore Edition, was released last year on DVD and BluRay formats. [via Synthtopia]
