Music documentary ‘Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay’ to get premiere at BFI, London
World Premiere 8th May 2015 – BFI Southbank, London
Industrial Soundtrack is the first film to trace the origins of industrial music, taking you on a journey through the crumbling industrial cities of Europe to America’s thriving avant-garde scene.
Industrial music emerged in the mid 70’s, providing a vibrant, provocative and artistic soundtrack to the picket lines, economic decline and cultural oppression of the era. Whether factory workers, students or unemployed, industrial music pioneers were all educated, artistically minded and politically aware artists who started with little to no musical background and went on to change musical history.
