The legendary German band Einstürzende Neubauten, known since the '80s for their uncompromising approach to music has come up with yet another groundbreaking project far ahead of its times, enabling them to work on their endeavors without needing to bow to the music industry's rules and regulations. What impact this cheeky use of modern technology has had on the band, their fans and the music industry is portrayed in this documentary Einstürzende Neubauten - On Tour With Neubauten.Org by Danielle De Picciotto. Danielle De Picciotto, an American artist living in Berlin since the fall of the wall, has influenced Berlin's cultural scene since 1985 in many ways as the co-innovator of the Love Parade, the Ocean Club with Gudrun Gut and Kunst oder König, the club-cultural exhibition series presenting Berlin's creative cross-culture internationally. Also an active member of Berlin's music scene (former singer of the Space Cowboys) she has known Einstürzende Neubauten personally for almost twenty years, following their development with interest. After becoming a member of their new project Neubauten.org, in 2003 she was asked to document the ensuing tour in 2004 by Blixa Bargeld, singer of the band, to provide material for future concert documentaries. Besides filming every show, she interviewed countless "supporters" worldwide, ending up with this documentary -- a courageous example of how following an individual, courageous path can change people's lives worldwide. Includes fascinating bonus material such as: "Die Intonatore," a short film from the supporter "Dihcar and Ste van Holm," a "Making Of" interview with Alexander Hacke, a Blixa Bargeld live track, as well as two slideshows. NTSC format DVD, 4:3, DVD 9, stereo, digipack. Running time: 90 mins.
