A Euphoric Record of Sheffield's Studio Electrophonique
An unassuming council estate semi in Sheffield was the location of an underground studio that nurtured a generation of superstars, such as ABC, The Human League, Heaven 17, Clock DVA and Pulp. A Film About Studio Electrophonique. This feature documentary, narrated by Sean Bean, uncovers the story of the Ballifield council-estate semi that housed Studio Electrophonique, the home studio owned by Ken Patten: panel beater, fly fisherman, water skier and midwife at the birth of electronic music in the North.
