Using interviews, performances, and great archival footage, SONIC ACTS traces the development of electronic music and explores connections and conflicts between the music of early electronic pioneers and the dance music of new-generation artists. The film features Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Henry, John Cage and other prominent figures in the genre's history, as well as contemporary artists including Squarepusher and DJ Spooky. Additional performance footage will also be shown before the film.
