Very well done
14 February 1999 | by (Marietta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of electronic music for several years now, I was surprised that a full scale documentary on the history of techno was produced.

I got a chance to catch it at the Motor Lounge in Hamtramick and what I saw surprised me. This documentary is incredibly well done. It covers the history of electronica from its earliest origins in the 1950's to the modern day rave scene.

The audio is fantastic and any music lover should appreciate the facts presented within the movie. Modulations covers most of the bases, including the various techno scenes across the world. They interview many artists and the man who started it all (inventing the Moog Synth). This is great stuff.....

The audio and video are fantastic and I hope that they release this on DVD in the near future.
