ELEKTRO MOSKVA tells the strange but true story of the evolution of electronic music against a backdrop of revolutionary politics, social upheaval, and totalitarian control.
From the invention of the world’s first electronic instrument by Leon Theremin in 1928, to avant garde musicians of the 1970s scavenging contraband parts from KGB spying equipment, to modern day circuit-benders in cramped Moscow flats turning discarded toys into bizarre instruments, ELEKTRO MOSKVA chronicles almost a century of freethinking musicians, artists, and inventors who turned the economic hardships of the Soviet system into some of the strangest and most mind-expanding sounds and instruments ever devised.
