Modulations - History Of Electronic Music

GB 1998 documentary with Coldcut, Scanner, Squarepusher and many more      22/08/21

Modulations: Cinema for the Ear is 1998 documentary by Lara Lee covering the the history of electronic music from perspective of numerous artists and influential bands. The documentary was a companion for a book written by Peter Shapiro, and was accompanied by a soundtrack which featured Coldcut, LFO, Donna Summer and Goldie. 

Modulations is a feature-length documentary that captures a moment in history where humans and machines are fusing to create today's most exciting sounds. It traces the evolution of electronic music as one of the most profound artistic developments of the twentieth century. By cutting back and forth between avant-garde composers, Kraftwerk's innovative synthesizer drones, Giorgio Moroder's glacial Euro-disco, Afrika Bambaataa's electro-funk, and Prodigy's current worldwide superstarstardom, Modulations celebrates, replicates, and illuminates the nomadic drift of the post-human techno sound.
