A feature-length celebration of Vienna, her electronic musicians and her clubs. "In this film, vinyl is a metaphor for something we love, even for its imperfections and scratches, and so it is with these musicians’ love-hate relationship with their city.”


Synopsis

A feature-length celebration of Vienna, its electronic musicians and its clubs. This huge film mosaic presents personalities on the city’s club scene (Kruder & Dorfmeister, Patrick Pulsinger), innovators and experimenters (Christian Fennesz, Noid, Philip Quehenberger), and the local reps of trash punk (Bulbul, Fuckhead). Dozens of musicians reflect on what stimulates them in a city hailed as one of the cultural metropolises of Europe. "In this film, vinyl is a metaphor for something we love, even for its imperfections and scratches, and so it is with these musicians’ love-hate relationship with their city.” The English director shot material in Vienna virtually every day over the course of three years. Over 1000 hours of footage were finally transformed into an image of a microcosm of today’s European city, resonating with inspiration from all possible cultures and historical eras.
