The story will focus on the four-year journey of reviving the rare instrument, which was originally built by Don Tavel in the ’70s.
The Resynator was discovered in an attic by Tavel’s daughter Alison, who was born only 10 weeks before he passed away in a car crash in 1988. The likes of Portishead, Mu-Tron founder Mike Beigel and Peter Gabriel also feature in the film, and help unearth answers about the synthesiser along the way.
