This short documentary by Polly Petrova profiles the underground electronic music scene in Scotland’s largest city.
The Glasgow Underground Music Scene is a documentary that captures Glasgow’s unique rebellious character. The film will tackle the deep roots of the underground music scene and explore how the city established its characteristic ‘Glasgow Sound’. Within the film will be the ongoing discussion on the similarities between Scotland’s biggest city and the two capitals of techno’- Berlin and Detroit. All three cities share a dark post-industrial past of minority separatism. People needed something to turn to and escape their dark reality – their escapism took the form of music. The film will show insight into Glasgow’s finer DJs, aspiring talent, venues and make the audience draw parallels between Glasgow, Detroit and Berlin through the similarities in the cultural and historical landscapes that have helped shaped the cities music scenes.
