The slides will help with the british historical context.

Write a 1-2 page response to the documentary “Synth Britannia.” Stream it on https://vimeo.com/392688874 . Before watching the documentary, PLEASE REVIEW THE LECTURE SLIDES (“Synth Britannia guide”)
The slides will help with the British historical context. For your response (1-2 pages total), please clearly address at least one topic from each part of the documentary. In short, you should show evidence of having carefully viewed both parts of “Synth Britannia”. Here are the suggested topics – for “Part 1, Alienated Synthesists” – cold aesthetics of post-punk; British science fiction; or new synthesizers / Topics for “Part 2: Construction Time Again” – fire & ice groups; gender/sexuality in synth-pop; or critical responses to synth-pop in Britain
