Elektro Moskva: The Secret History of Soviet Space-Age Electronic Music
The bleeps and bloops in this musical documentary belong to the avant-garde rock musicians who made up the Soviet Union's long-lost, Space-Age dance music scene. From the groundbreaking work of inventor Leon Theremin to interviews with a brand new generation of Russian collectors bent on embracing the crude synthesizers and "cosmic chill-out tunes" of mid-century Moscow, this cheeky documentary celebrates its love for primitive electronic tuneage. In Russian with English subtitles.
