Description



We are very pleased to be able to offer an exclusive version of 'Haack... The King Of Techno'. available to download on Bleep. Originally released in 2004 this version has been especially recut for Bleep by the director Philip Anagnos.

'Haack...' surveys the life and legacy of Bruce Haack. The unique body of work he has left behind has been an influence on a generation of electronic and hip hop music makers, including MGMT, Animal Collective and Moby and a host of others touched-on in the documentary.

Featuring interviews with contemporaries such as his collaborators Esther Nelson and Chris Kachulis as well as a host of people who cite him as an influence including Money Mark, Cut Chemist, Peanut Butter Wolf, Eels and Mouse On Mars; Anagnos weaves this together with archive footage of the man to paint a picture of the man and his legacy.

Haack's first forays into making records were as a composer of children's music. The results found an adult audience too who were drawn to Haack's avant-garde and experimental approach. This was followed by a number of albums of Haack's own music not aimed at children in the 70s.

Haack's inventiveness comes across not only in his music, but also in the methods used to produce it. The archive footage in this documentary shows a man who clearly loved the process as much as the result. He is as fascinating as the sounds he makes.
