This Saturday July 4th Home in Manchester will be showing a very special film about Industrial music.
Tickets from here
Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay 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 ’70s, providing a vibrant, provocative and artistic soundtrack to the economic decline and cultural oppression of the era.
Finding inspiration in Kraftwerk, Faust and Can, and 20th century art movements and post-modern writers including Burroughs and Ballard, these musical pioneers incorporated tape loops, homemade synthesisers, factory field recordings and cut-up techniques.
Discover the personal story of industrial music founders Throbbing Gristle, Sheffield’s prolific Dada-inspired band Cabaret Voltaire, award-winning soundtrack composer Graeme Revell of SPK, noise music inventor Boyd Rice of NON, and other influential figures.
Directors Amélie Ravalec and Travis Collins, and DJ Stephen Mallinder for a Q&A following the screening. We will also be joined by Stephen Mallinder for a DJ set in the HOME events space after the screening and Q&A.
