Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay trailer by Amelie Ravalec and Travis Collins

Premiering May 8th at the BFI Southbank cinema in London is the much anticipated documentary Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay by Amelie Ravalec and Travis Collins. The film traces the origins of Industrial music, taking you on a journey through the crumbling industrial cities of Europe to America’s thriving avant-garde scene.

Since its inception in the late 70’s, Industrial music has come a long way from its origins as an obscure, extreme and taboo movement of passionate and creative DIY artists and musicians. Whether factory workers, students or unemployed, industrial music pioneers were all educated, artistically minded and politically aware artists who started with little to no musical background and went on to inexorably alter the course of popular music; this fast moving documentary explores their stories and charts the evolution of a scene that started as counter culture rejection of major labels, mass media and popular culture but soon began to influence and infiltrate all of these spaces. Featuring Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, NON, SPK, Test Dept, Clock DVA, Re/Search – V Vale, Z’EV, Click Click, Sordide Sentimental, Hula, In The Nursery, Hands,The Klinik / Dive, Ant Zen, Orphx and Prima Linea.
