Re: Music Documentaries

It's not directly music, covers commercial art as a whole: Everything is a Remix.

I found myself watching a 4 hour Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers documentary on netflix last month. I know way more about Tom Petty than I will ever need to, but I think it had some good insight on the production side of things.

Re: Music Documentaries

Synth Britannia is really excellent. It's better than most documentaries I have seen about scenes and periods of time. Of course New Wave and 80s -90s electronic music are very dear to me. Interesting enough, Kraftwerk was the band on top at the time in club ticket sales. Kinda funny, as we in the US considered them to be very underground.

Re: Music Documentaries

This article called "The 50 Best Music Documentaries of All Time" lists a few interesting ones..though some are really dated.

Also check out "I Dream Of Wires", which is well worth watching.

Re: Music Documentaries

"The Sound of Progress" is a pretty interesting documentary about the UK alternative scene with great interviews from COIL, CURRENT 93 and others. There's a really bad quality rip of it on youtube. Seem pretty low budget but like I said the interviews are really great and its substance over style in general. Definitely worth a watch!!

Re: Music Documentaries

"Lets'get lost" a documentary about the Jazz Trumpetist Chet Baker is really good, more centred on it's intimacy and inner life.

There's also "Techno Story" classic documentary about, well, Techno music, but still interesting.

There's also "Pump Up The Volume: The History of House Music", I can't post link but it's on youtube.

And there's also a great documentary unfortunately only in french I think, called "French Touch" from 1999, that well will appeals to those who are interested in French Touch's musician.

Other genre : "A Stravinsky Portrait"a documentary from 1966 about one of the master of rythm (with Bartok) in modern classical music. Very interesting too.
