Das Filter have produced a short documentary based on the Subharchord synthesiser, one of the oldest and most unique pieces of music production equipment that has ever existed.

The synth was originally built in East Germany during the 1960’s and the production aims to educate viewers on the history of the machine and the influence it has had on music; it also features footage of the last remaining Subharchords in action.

Throughout the documentary, historian Manfred Miersch discusses the economic factors in the creation of he Subharchord and the influence that the Mixtur-Trautonium, created in the 1930’s, throughout the endeavour of achieving distinctive sound.
