SÄHKÖ THE MOVIE documents Finnish techno label Sähkö Recordings in it's
mid-90s prime. Best known for it's sparse, ultra-minimal sound,

This 16mm film shows Mika Vainio aka Ø, Pan(a)sonic,

trademark custom-built analogue equipment, hand pressing limited
edition vinyl releases and eardrum rupturing live performances. The
movie is essential viewing for anyone with a passing interest in
techno, industrial and experimental music but also the restless DIY
