Editorial Reviews

Inside a crumbling socialist office block in former East Berlin, synthesiser store owner Andreas Schneider preaches the way of analogue to a loyal following of infamous electronic musicians, who flock to his store, 'Schneiders Buero', for unique boutique instruments. His business has prospered against the odds throughout the digital revolution in music, and in parallel, through a period of huge change in East Berlin. His is a haven for maverick instrument builders and passionate collectors alike. But as the twin forces of capitalism and digital technology seep through the last bricks of the Wall, how much longer can this analogue asylum survive?

This film about the 'Schneiders Buero' music store in Berlin, Germany, is a must-see for fans of analogue instruments and electronic music. Featuring exclusive material with Daniel Miller, Ricardo Villalobos, Dieter Doepfer, Junior Boys, Magda, Marc Houle, John Tejada, Anthony Rother, Ken Macbeth, Wowa Cwejman, Jessica Rylan and many more.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, if not exactly what I was expecting! May 21, 2010

Totally Wired bills itself as a documentary about Schneiders Buero, a store located in Berlin dedicated to analog synthesis. The DVD's description states, "...as the twin forces of capitalism and digital technology seep through the last bricks of the Wall, how much longer can this analogue asylum survive?", which is a great hook for a documentary but it's really not what this movie is about. This movie is really a series of mini interviews with different customers and independent synth manufacturers whose lives intersect at Mr. Schneider's store. The whole sub-plot about the store's survival is nearly non-existent.

Having said this, the people featured are all wonderfully interesting. Some are hobbyists, some are avant garde musicians, some are professional manufacturers, all of whom share a love of analog synthesis. This movie isn't about the bigger names in the synth business but about those people who have such a passion for analog synthesis and for the tactile feedback that analog equipment provides that nothing else is worth owning. The most interesting parts for me were the independent synth manufacturers, many of whom are just small companies that create unique synth modules, yet still manage to thrive in this niche market.

One technical problem is that the image does not seem properly formatted for the screen. Half the names that appeared on screen were cut off and I had to watch the DVD zoomed out to be able to see as much of the image as possible. Even zoomed out, quite a lot of the text was still cropped.

Despite the technical problems, the documentary was extremely interesting and a must own for anyone interested in analog synthesis.

4.0 out of 5 stars i knew what to expect, otherwise would be unsatisfied August 31, 2013

its not that professionell and could easily be boring if you are not totally into analog synths and better, also into techno and house so you know the artists.
but if you are into that stuff there is not much material to watch, so that documentary is a great one when it comes to analog synths in connection with the well known artists of techno.
also the manufactures have plenty time for interviews so you get a picture to your so loved macbeth, cwejman and doepfer synthesizers.
all in all you get a good picture of the people fiddlin around with analog electronics that time.
