Modulations, la música electrónica de los 90

Modulations, la música electrónica de los 90

Siempre lo he comentado en esta web, ser DJ, es mucho mas que poner música, es entender la música, conocer su historia, los artistas que han marcado cada generación y los que mas influencia han tenido y tienen en los nuevos artistas.

Quizás porque cada día nos lo dan todo mas “hecho” o porque hay una saturación, es fácil dejarse llevar, comprar esa música que nos recomiendan en los “top” de turno y terminar pinchando lo que todo el mundo pincha, cuando lo bonito de esta profesión es entender y descubrir, tanto nuevos artistas y tendencias, como aquello que se escuchaba hace unos años.

Modulations es un documental donde se nos muestra la evolución del techno y su cultura en los años 90, Juan Atkins, Darren Emerson, LTJ Bukem, Orbital, Prodigy y muchos mas artistas, nos muestran como fue las escena de la música electrónica a finales de los 80 y principios de los 90…un documental que está en Ingles, pero que al tratar del lenguaje universal que es la música, creo que se entiende perfectamente.

Modulations – cinema for the ear
History of Electronic Music Director: Iara Lee Writer: Peter Shapiro "We are not entertainers, we are sound scientists." – Kraftwerk Modulations is a feature-length documentary produced by George Gund and directed by Iara Lee which 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 20th 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. The film examines the kids who have turned the turntable into a musical instrument, disillusioned disco lovers who created acid house out of primitive synthesizers, Motor City mavericks who saw the drum machine as their escape route out of urban neglect, and a generation of British youth who transformed these blips and bleeps into dance floor anthems of their own alienation. Modulations provides a sense of history and context in which today's electronic music can be understood. It entertains the converted and remixes the mindset of electronica's nay-sayers. Featuring a stunning collage of interviews, cutting-edge visuals, in-studio footage and live performances, Modulations moves at a pace that matches the energy and innovation of the music.
