Films

  1. ELEKTRO MOSKVA

    Elena Tikhonova and Dominik Spritzendorfer / Russia via Austria / 2013 / 89 mins
    ELEKTRO MOSKVA showcases Russia’s “electronic history” – from the Theremin and the synthesizer to the bugging devices of the KGB. Inspired by spherical-cosmic chill-out sounds and experimental tapestries of noise, collectors and tinkerers rave about the quasi-futuristic devices. This “electromagnetic fairytale” provides the first concise analysis of the Soviet and pre-Soviet Union’s electronic music, but ELEKTRO MOSKVA is much more than just a music film.
