Industrial Soundtrack for the Urban Decay
Amélie Ravalec & Travis Collins / 2015, France-Belgium-Germany-USA-UK
52min / Blu-ray

Industrial Soundtrack For The Urban Decay is the first film to trace the origins of industrial music, taking you on a journey through the crumbling industrial cities of Europe to America's thriving avant-garde scene. Industrial music emerged in the mid 70's, providing a vibrant, provocative and artistic soundtrack to the picket lines, economic decline and cultural oppression of the era. 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 change musical history. The musicians found inspiration in Krautrock bands Kraftwerk, Faust and Can, 20th century art movements Dada, Futurism and Surrealism and post-modern writers William Burroughs, Brion Gysin and J.G. Ballard. Combining the do-it-yourself attitude of punk with mail art and underground fanzines, these pioneers were also among the first bands to incorporate tape loops, homemade synthesisers, factory field recordings and cut-up techniques in their music.


Since 2002, DJ Coldheart has been a fixture in the Seattle goth/industrial scene, known for favoring the roots and the raw side of the darker genres, and for digging deep into the scopes and depths. He specializes in pre-laptop industrial, from the cult classics, pioneers, and fan favorites, to the obscure and forgotten gems of the golden era from the 70's through the 80's. He has long-running nights at the Mercury, and has done nights at the Baltic Room, Kremwerk, Re-Bar, among others.


Biled Will/Wild Bill is an angry little man who makes angry little ditties.  Pop songs for the mysanthropic, his music harkens back to the early days of industrial and synth punk where sardonic lyrics are barked over blown-out dance beats and a cascading wall of noise.
