High Tech Soul: The Creation of Techno Music

Join us for a screening and discussion of High Tech Soul: The Creation of Techno Music - the essential techno documentary exploring the roots of techno music and the underground dance scene of 80s Detroit.

High Tech Soul is the first film to examine the evolution of electronic music, as told by seminal techno DJs such as Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May. With a classic soundtrack to match this Detroit tale, the film is a must-see for techno and music lovers alike.
