From the original crowfunding campaign back in 2011 and the original trailer which received quite a few hits on youtube and vimeo IDOW (aka MODULAR: The Documentary) has grown to become THE documentary about the history and resurgence of modular synthesizers.
4 more rounds of crowdfunding campaigning, tons of interviews and trailers after the Robert Fantinatto-directed and Jason Amm co-written is ready for a big festival release next May (the short 85-min version).
The good thing is that the theatrical release will see a parallel BlueRay / DVD release for June with a truly hardcore version: 4 hours of synths, electro music and priceless interviews & appearances, some of which can be already seen on IDOW’s vimeo page. Although for the whole lot maybe you may want to grab a copy.
“I Dream of Wires” is an upcoming, independent documentary film about the phenomenal resurgence of the modular synthesizer — exploring the passions, obsessions and dreams of people who have dedicated part of their lives to this esoteric electronic music machine. Written and directed by Robert Fantinatto, with Jason Amm (Ghostly International recording artist Solvent) serving as producer and co-writer, I Dream Of Wires is set to premiere spring 2013.
