Hey,
In case you're not aware there's a review of IDOW in the latest Tapeop mag (#99).

pretty cool i thought

Yeah I thought it was a pretty good review.

Bit of a bittersweet comment at the end. Not one that I 100% disagree with, but a somewhat odd statement perhaps.

You mean the, "fairly entitled hipsters noodling around with very pricey electronics" comment?

Yeah... kinda pointed

That review was a pleasant surprise! Funny, I contacted them early on and asked if they might consider reviewing it and was told no, they don't review films... So it was a nice surprise to find out that it got reviewed in there anyways.

I definitely disagree with his comment about modular music... there's some great music being made with modulars these days - he cites a lack of "innovation and musicality" with modular music... I hear plenty of both coming out of modular musicians these days. I guess my soundtrack music didn't win him over!

I disagree with that, too!
That same thing could be said about every type of music you can think of...
and still be false.
You have to find the stuff.
It's not always served up to you on a plate.
and
it has always been that way!!!
(at least for me Guinness ftw! )

After a second viewing I see where John/Tape Op is coming from.

There has never been another film like this about modular culture. Shouldn't it have shepherded the neophyte through the genre a little more? It would have been nice to give the viewer a primer, I think.

I have other criticisms of it as well. Maybe it's because they are private, but Kraftwerk gets almost no mention. Heck, in the Moog documentary they aren't talked about at all. I don't know why that is. They pretty much invented the genre, as such. The vast majority of electronic artists owe a debt to them, at least indirectly. They are The Beatles of electronic music.
