In the underground vault of a former Viennese factory building, you find a bizarre and magical microcosm filled with electronic and analogue objects and instruments. Dubbed Janka Industries, the cellars were first occupied by creative mavericks in the 1980s. Since then, it served as a space for experimental music and eclectic art. UNDER THE UNDERGROUND evokes memories of its improvised beginnings, of rats, parrots and other former guests, as well as today’s studio spaces where musicians play, perform and record. An artistic film about analogue hacking, quirky creativity, and eccentric music – the ultimate homage to underground culture.
