Speaking In Code is a unique look into the subculture of electronic music. By following artists, producers, DJs, journalists and promoters, it offers a verite look into a world few have ever seen. Both light hearted and heartbreaking, it is a series of character studies, as when Don't Look Back took us inside of Dylan's folk music or The Decline of Western Civilization showed us the LA punk scene. Director Amy Grill follows a series of characters (including her techno obsessed husband) over a number of years as some struggle to while others thrive in electronic music. The characters she documents are as compelling as their storylines: Modeselektor, a rambunctious producer duo; journalist Philip Sherburne; The Wighnomy Brothers of the former East Germany; DJ Tobias Thomas of Kompakt; and Monolake, an inventor of Abelton Live. And back in the US, David Day tries tirelessly to turn Boston into a techno city. The challenges to finish the film and Day's obsession become a crucial plot line.
