This is what a longtime, authentic techno veteran’s music studio looks like.
A new documentary about Pittsburgh’s techno top-dog Shawn Rudiman follows him inside his elaborate music studio to chat about his personal history with and relationship to music as well as the struggles he’s encountered over a lifetime of incorporating techno into his life and career. As Rudiman explains in the video, The Pittsburgh Space Station, he has collected gear and made electronic music for decades.

We explored the development of Pittsburgh’s nightlife economy and culture in our own feature about Hot Mass, which you can read here.
