Dates and Times: Wednesday, 24 October 2018, 7:30pm Venue: Spazju Kreattiv Cinema Price: €7 / €6 (Electronic Music Malta members)
Electronic Music Malta in collaboration with Spazju Kreattiv and the German-Maltese Circle present the screening of the documentary film Conny Plank – The Potential of Noise (in German with subtitles in English).
Konrad “Conny” Plank was one of the most innovative sound designers and music producers of his time. He was a pioneer of krautrock and a trailblazer of electronic pop music. Bands and artists such as NEU!, Brian Eno, David Bowie, Ultravox, and the Eurythmics recorded with him; even now they stress the influence he had on their music. Without Plank, Gianna Nannini probably would have always sung in the English language.
Conny died at the age of 47. Twenty-five years later, his son Stephan along with co-director Reto Caduff, went in search of the man whom as a boy he had often seen only behind the mixing console and produced this documentary about Conny’s life and relationship with acts which helped shape electronic music as we know it today.
The screening will be preceded by a discussion and vinyl listening session.
