Ian Maleney; a writer living in Dublin. His work on electronic music has been published in the Irish Times, Resident Advisor & The Wire. He is founder and editor of Fallow Media.
Cáit Fahey; DJ with the collective DIP and presenter of electronic music show DIP on Raidió na Life.
Romuald Karmakar’s new documentary is an appreciation of the work of five German pioneers of electronic music, including international stars like Ricardo Villalobos and Roman Flugel, who take us behind the turntables to reveal the methods to their madness and how they are keeping techno alive and well.
Villalobos and Flugel, the DJs Sonja Moonear, Ata and David Moufang (aka Move D) are all given space to discuss and free associate about their musical processes, delving into the history of electronic music and how it has evolved over the decades from an underground movement to achieving mainstream acceptance. Karmakar intercuts these fascinating digressions with extended shots of each subject at work in club sequences framed to reveal both the DJs in action and the crowds’ euphoric responses.
Tickets for If I think of Germany at Night + panel discussion are on sale online now or from the IFI Box Office on 01-6793477.
