Re: I Dream of Wires

Here's a new little interview with on Red Bull Music Academy's website, about my role in the film + the modular synthesizer resurgence in general. Also features a bunch of previously unpublished stills from the film, studio/modular shots of Vince Clarke, Carl Craig, Cevin Key, Jack Dangers, Chris Ca...

I'll be posting some audio demos of it today...

Re: I Dream of Wires

the only thing that bothers me is that people who would make a movie about the resurgence of modular synthesisers would operate under the incorrect and mistaken assumption that the post-1998 large-format market was primarily consumed and enjoyed by old men with grey ponytails who just want to play ...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Here's a good on topic question, why is Gary Numan in it? I love his music and all, but akaik he isn't really known for the use of modulars. He seemed to be an early adopter of all digital tech, wasn't he? Or did you just want meet Numan? It's a good question but I'm beginning to feel like I'm givi...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Very bizarre to me that Jack Dangers' silly/fun "Take that, Wendy Carlos" was read into as anything deeper than that - a silly comment for fun. He's a very accomplished and influential musician BTW, the man behind Meat Beat Manifesto, who were hugely influential on people like Autechre and (I'm gues...

Yes we visited Dieter at Doepfer HQ and interviewed him - did you not see him the trailer? He's the guy with the German accent and Doepfer T-shirt!

Re: I Dream of Wires

If the thread's going to get locked, can I (the producer for I Dream Of Wires) please request that the last post include this text below? Otherwise that's going to get totally lost on account of all of the unrelated stuff from the last few pages... Just want to make sure this is 100% clear: Hardcore...

Re: I Dream of Wires

I still think you should have put STG in it, though. :) We were trying to schedule an interview at NAMM... why did that not work out mr STG? I think it was because your attending wasn't confirmed until pretty last minute? I don't remember exactly... We had our time booked up solid at NAMM - I only ...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Moog Music may have nothing to do with modern modular systems today (which itself is debateable, the MoogerFooger line is designed to integrate into varied systems, modular or not) but that doesn't mean RA Moog modules and their contribution to history and the influence on the current scene are som...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Okay, I just want to ask a question. Does "modern" here refer to some sort of electronic dance music by default? Not in my books, but having seen that video recently, it was the first (& only, TBH) video I could think of with a Dotcom-dominated system, that didn't sound like an homage to 70s electr...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Interesting, modern music and sounds with vintage moog gear and dotcom? Really? Let's see some links please. A little Modcan mixed in, but it looks like he's mostly using Dotcom: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fv1C8oPHPYk This is one of the guys from Azari & III ... I'm not saying this is the most ...

Re: I Dream of Wires

my last point... I surely don't think there is anything wrong with people liking Tangerine Dream &/or reliving their '70s TD youth fantasies through modular. I hope that nothing I said gave that impression. I personally spent the better part of a decade reliving my '80s synthpop youth fantasies thro...

Re: I Dream of Wires

Note to self: must cancel internet in June... I don't think I can take all of the debate that the film itself is going to inspire! It's just not possible to please everybody, we just have to accept that. We just want nothing more than to make a fun and interesting film, putting some people and stori...

Re: I Dream of Wires

I thought the IDOW trailer was really laim. I would be pissed if I gave my time for a full interview about an instrument or modular, and they chose that 8 seconds for their trailer. Seems taken out of context to make it sound like an old Moog was c**p, just to support this IDOW editors opinion. It'...
