When music has become predictably homogenized and creative malaise begins to set in, it's innovators like Bruce Haack who strive to bring a newfound sense of experimentation and fun to their art -- to inspire future musicians to strike out on their own and see their craft in a different light. Though his remarkable sonic experiments have inspired everyone from Beck to Mouse on Mars, Haack still remains one of the least-known musical artists in American music history. A creator whose striking musical compositions and technological innovations can bring wonder to audiences both young and old, electronic-music pioneer Haack drew inspiration from all genres of music and has often been referred to as one of the founding fathers of techno. If music is what excites you and you've never heard of Bruce Haack, you owe it to yourself to check out this remarkable documentary detailing one of the true buried treasures of the music world.
