Born in Hamburg, Felix Kubin was a prim and proper little boy who learned to play the piano, the electric organ, and the glockenspiel, until he turned 11 and got a synthesizer. Between the keys of his new instrument, he found a brave new world.
A renowned and gifted electronic musician, Kubin attained his legend status after years of experimenting with countless musical styles. The film that reveals his inner world is a celebration of playful, weird, bold, and inspiring music and visuals—just like Kubin himself.
Esteemed filmmaker Marie Losier (The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye) delivers a humorous, unconventional portrait of a genius who never stops thinking of new ways to play the music he hears in his dreams.
