Demiurge presents a series of documentary screenings complemented with DJ sets intended to examine the history and culture of Techno music, with particular focus on scenes in Paris, Berlin, and Detroit.

Friday September 6: Paris/Berlin: 20 Years of Underground Techno. This 52" documentary tells the story of an underground movement, from its beginning until now. Born in Detroit in the late 80s, techno met its audience a few years later in Europe, as the UK, Germany, France and many other countries started to host the foundations of a techno scene. The documentary features those in the scene who kept it true to its original spirit. About twenty people trace the evolution of techno over the years. They all have different profiles - dj, producer, label manager, promoter, record shop owner... but all share a common passion: techno.

"This is what techno was about, this is what it should be about, and hopefully this is gonna stay this way for a while now." - Adam X

Friday 27 September: High Tech Soul: The Creation of Techno Music. High Tech Soul is the first documentary to tackle the deep roots of techno music alongside the cultural history of Detroit, its birthplace. High Tech Soul focuses on the creators of the genre -- Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson -- and looks at the relationships and personal struggles behind the music. Artists like Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Eddie Fowlkes and a host of others explain why techno, with its abrasive tones and resonating basslines, could not have come from anywhere but Detroit.

"Defines the myths and the magic of Detroit techno from its beginnings right up to how it has evolved to become High Tech Soul." - Derrick May
