Speaking in Code, director Amy Grill’s documentary about the global techno scene, follows some of the genre’s bleeding-edge names, like Modeselektor, Monolake, the Wighnomy Brothers, and Pitchfork contributor Philip Sherburne. It features appearances by Ellen Allien, Akufen, Wolfgang Voigt, Reinhard Voigt, Michael Mayer, Apparat, Miss Kittin, and more. Co-producer David Day, a former Pitchfork contributor and Grill’s husband at the time, also features in the movie.
Tomorrow, the movie comes out on DVD, and you can order it right now from the Speaking in Code website. The DVD includes extras like uncut footage of Modeselektor‘s performance at the 2007 Sonar festival, as well as a tour of the Kompakt Records store and office given by Michael Mayer, which you can watch below or over at Pitchfork.tv Below, you can also watch the film’s trailer.
