Subotnick: Portrait of an Electronic Music Pioneer

Robert Fantinatto
2022 | Canada | 87 min

The director of the documentary “I Dream of Wires” on modular synthesisers in 2014, portrays one of the great electronic innovators who emerged from the avant-garde scene of San Francisco in the 1960s, alongside luminaries like Pauline Oliveros, Terry Riley, and Ramon Sender. Marking the 50th anniversary of the iconic album “Silver Apples of The Moon” and the creation of a new piece on mass control, Subotnick – also an orchestral and operatic composer, a pioneer in streaming concerts, and educational music software – emerges as a guru who has seemingly travelled through time to show us what the music of the future was like. He explains profound concepts in a simple and cheerful first-person manner, all enveloped in psychedelic liquid light effects.

Starring: Morton Subotnick, Ramon Sender, Joan La Barbara, Jac Holzman, Lillevan
