Around the electronica world in 80 minutes
14 January 1999 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

If you are at all interested in electronic music - in just about any form, but especially techno/jungle/acid/dnb/house/etc. make sure you see this movie. "Modulations" is a brilliant little (73 minutes) film that is a perfect visual complement to the subject matter - including trippy graphics, beat-synched cinematography, thought-provoking interviews, live shots of wired-up ravers, and of course, a ripping soundtrack.

Get your head together and check it out - you'll be glad you did.
