Elektro Moskva Trailer

This video is the official trailer for Elektro Moskva – a new documentary, by Elena Tikhonova and Dominik Spritzendorfer, that looks at electronic music in Russia:

ELEKTRO MOSKVA is an essayistic documentary about the beginnings of the Soviet electronic age and what remained of it- a huge pile of outdated, fascinating devices. Today they are being recycled and reinterpreted by musicians, inventors and traders, who carry that legacy on into an uncertain future. An electronic fairy tale about the inventive spirit of the free mind inside the iron curtain- and beyond.

  1. Oh wow.. I’m not so fond of Russia, because they’re our neighbors and tried to invade us in the 40’s and all that.. But this looks really interesting. ‘On a Soviet instrument, when you press a button, you get… something” 😀 I hope they give insights on Polivoks 😛

  2. This looks really interesting. I wish more film makers would realize the world they live in now is digital, and release directly through the net. I would pay money to stream or download this right now, but as it stands I’ll probably never see it because its doing an art house style thing in a handful of theaters I will never be anywhere near.

  3. I don’t understand why they’re withholding the DVD. I want to watch it, I’ve wanted to watch it for over a year now… At this stage I’d pay £50 for the freaking privilege, but where the $h*£ do I buy the freaking DVD?!?!

    I think their real mission is to torture analogue synth fanatics. Well done, five stars!

    1. Hi, sorry, NO, our mission was NOT to torture you guys, but believe me, it is not an easy thing doing this kind of doc: We were working on this over eight (!!) years with VERY limited budgets and we only made it because we were crazy about this story ourselves and believed that there will be an audience that would be, too. But after releasing it is just vital to get some reputation and attention through festivals- you can’t just release it on DVD/VOD right away. We hope you understand that. But now we have good news, at least for european audiences (so far): The movie is available on VOD through our site http://www.elektromoskva.com ! In North America the film will be released very soon, too. We hope you enjoy it, if you do, please help us spread the word. And, by purchasing on our site, you support our effort making this movie 100%!) Thank you
