“Dub Echoes” is a documentary that traces the origins of the Jamaican dub music and it’s influence on the development of hip hop and electronic music.The film shows how the Jamaican invention called dub ended up influencing much of the music we hear today, from electronic music to hip-hop, transforming the studio in a musical instrument and giving way to all of sonic experiments.
Featuring an incredible array of artists, both original Jamaican artists – U Roy, King Jammy, Lee Perry, Sly Dunbar, Bunny Lee (to name a few), alongside a similarly awe-inspiring array of artists who have been taken Dub into new directions in electronic dance music – Kode9, Roots Manuva, Howie B, Adrian Sherwood and many more. Directed by Bruno Natal.
Modulations is a feature-length documentary that traces the evolution of electronic music as one of the most profound artistic developments of the 20th century.
By cutting back and forth between avant garde composers, Kraftwerk’s innovative synthesizer drones, Giorgio Moroder’s glacial Euro-disco, Afrika Bambaataa’s electro-funk and Prodigy’s current worldwide superstarstardom, Modulations ‘celebrates the nomadic drift of the post-human techno sound’.

In 1972, Kenneth Anger commissioned Jimmy Page to score the soundtrack to the film Lucifer Rising. Page ultimately recorded a 24 minute composition, but it was not used. Page and Anger had a falling out, and when the film was finally released in 1980, it featured the music of Bobby Beausoleil.
