FRENCH WAVES is the first transmedia experience of electronic music: an international tour, a documentary film, a webseries, and an immersive website, to make you experience the French electronic music by those who created it, and create it today.

THE MOVIE: Through the testimonials of iconic French and international artists from years past and today, French Waves documentary looks at the history of French electronic music through the eyes of the younger generation. It sheds light on the movement’s American roots, illegal raves, and the French Touch phenomenon, a musical trend that played a pivotal role in the recognition of electronic music throughout the world.

Most importantly, the film explains how the newest wave of French artists is currently making this heritage its own. To make the documentary, Julian Starke, a young director and co- founder of the Pain Surprises collective, worked with over fifty key stakeholders in the electronic music industry, ranging from the genre’s earliest pioneers to today’s young talents. To gather their testimonials and discover new archives, he combed through Internet sources and traveled throughout Europe and North America over a period of three years. FRENCH WAVES invites viewers to step into the vibrant world of these alchemists of sound.
