Konrad “Conny” Plank is undoubtedly one of the most innovative sound designers of his time. The recordings realized in his sound studio near Cologne between the ‘60s and ‘80s revolutionised the music world.

He was the pioneer of “Kraut-rock”, “Neue Deutsche Welle” and paved the way for the revolutions of electronic and pop music respectively. Instrumental in shaping the early sound of Kraftwerk, Plank worked with The Eurythmics, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Gianna Nannini, Underworld and more.

This is a story that begins 25 years on, with his son Stephan Plank embarking on a journey to discover his father’s impact and importance in music history. Utilising the family connection, this film brings an unusually intimate and emotional insight to the artists and their work with Conny Plank, and all that defines music production. All tickets £6.00.
