Presented in partnership with IFI, Science Gallery Dublin presents an evening screening and talk looking at techno music and related musical styles. Romuald Karmakar’s new documentary is an appreciation of the work of five German pioneers of electronic music: Ricardo Villalobos, Sonja Moonear, Ata, Roman Flügel and Move D. Each DJ is given space to discuss and free associate about their musical processes, delving into the history of electronic music and how it has evolved over the decades from an underground movement to achieving mainstream acceptance. The director intercuts these fascinating digressions with extended shots of each subject at work in club sequences framed to reveal both the DJs in action and the crowds’ euphoric responses.
This screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
Please note: This event is being held in the Irish Film Institute and tickets are available from the IFI website here.
