I Dream of Wires documents the history and resurgence of the modular synthesizer—exploring the passions and obsessions of inventors, musicians and enthusiasts who’ve dedicated their lives to this esoteric instrument. From established musicians such as Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Carl Craig and John Foxx, to a new generation of electronica artists including Clark, James Holden and Factory Floor, modular synthesizer enthusiasts explain why this instrument is an essential tool for creating radical new sounds.
Arrive early as we kick of the night with DJ Jason Amm (Solvent), then stay for a Q&A with the directors and a modular synthesizer performance by Keith Fullerton Whitman.
