The power fails in the city. What ensues in the wake is an incisive tête-à-tête between two stranded strangers.

Lovecraft short story (but we're not going to tell you which one!).

H. P. Lovecraft meets Kraftwerk! Inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft story “The Music of Erich Zann“, Wattmarck follows German inventor and musician Karin Steckheim as she reassembles her band “Wattmarck“ for a final concert - to present a mysterious new synthesizer and the enigmatic sound it produces. Long time friend and musician, Anton Gsellmann, can’t simply forgive her that she sacrificed the band in order to research an apparently impossible sound, but curiosity drives him back to the factory – and the burning question: “What if she really discovered it?” Wattmarck tells its story on several layers, mixing documentary techniques with audio components, film-within-a-film as well as a hyper stylized filmic reality. This creates a dense atmosphere and an alternate history of electronic music, opening up a world that is expanded upon on the films website through videos, documents and pieces of audio.
