Documenting Electronic Music History

Subscribe: Waveshaper TV on Youtube


---> WHAT IS WAVESHAPER TV?


Waveshaper TV is a YouTube channel dedicated to high-quality interview and feature videos with a diverse array of electronic music producers, inventors, manufacturers, and visionaries. We're the same team behind the hugely successful modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires — seen widely on Netflix — as well as the forthcoming electronic music docs Electronic Voyager (about Bob Moog) and Subotnick (about Morton Subotnick).

  • WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF HOURS OF UNSEEN FOOTAGE

With the launch of this new platform, Waveshaper TV will provide an outlet for years worth of unreleased interview material, from the countless hours of footage that we accumulated while making I Dream Of Wires, to many additional, unseen interviews we've filmed over the years — on our own time, and on our own dime — across the globe. We have some truly special interviews, including some legendary and elusive figures that we can't wait to share with you! We're passionate about electronic music, and have made it our mission to document its story, from its iconic figures, to its lesser-known, yet compelling outsiders.

  • WE FOCUS ON THE CRAFT OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC

Waveshaper TV will focus on the craft and artistry of electronic music production, musicianship, and instrument building. We aim to explore electronic music in the broadest sense of the word: from ‘60s pioneers and ‘70s prog rockers, through to ‘80s synthpop, and the explosion of electronic music in all shapes and forms from the ‘90s until today. What unites all of these subjects is a passion — obsession even — for the sound of music made with machines.

Your Patreon support will allow us the means to film, edit and share more new video interviews and features. To start, we have committed to sharing at least two new interview/feature videos per month. With the help of enough Patreon supporters like you, we can not only share this body of work we've been accumulating since 2011, but also continue our mission to document electronic music history on film — past, present, and future.

---> WE'RE NOT A BIG-BUDGET PRODUCTION COMPANY

With I Dream Of Wires' wide scope and far reach, many people assume that we're a big production company with budgets to match, but this couldn't be any further from the truth! In fact, Waveshaper Media is a labour of love by Robert Fantinatto (director/cinematographer/editor) and Jason Amm (producer/researcher). Unfortunately, this labour of love does not keep the Waveshaper Media ship afloat, which is why we have turned to Patreon.

Patreon offers us a way to grow and share our video content with you. There's nothing like Waveshaper TV out there and we know there's a dedicated and passionate audience for our work. With the support of Patreon subscribers like you, we'll have the financial base to dedicate more of our time to creating top-notch content.

  • Access to our Patron-only blog.
  • EXTENDED EDITS of every interview/feature we publish (7+ minutes longer than the public videos).
