|Richie Hawtin's Minus label releases Ali Demirel's documentary of the imprint's massive 10th anniversary tour. The 'MAKING CONTAKT' movie and soundtrack are now available for digital download from zero".|
In 2008 the Minus bandwagon embarked on a tour of proportions previously unheard of in electronic music. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Richie Hawtin's genre-defining label, the CONTAKT tour visited nine cities on three continents over the course of a year.
The exceptional series of events not only featured the label's most prominent artists, such as Magda, Troy Pierce, Marc Houle, Heartthrob and Gaiser, but also an impressive array of cutting edge technology, pioneering new methods of collaborative performance as well as audience participation via RFID chips and mobile devices.
Insightful, captivating and genuinely funny at times, 'MAKING CONTAKT' documents the spirit of constant technological and artistic innovation that drives the Minus label. While the cinematic format of the tour documentary might be an established genre in rock music, this is the benchmark road movie for the techno generation.
