One of the most important studios in music history is Berlin’s Hansa Studios—just around the corner from Potsdamer Platz in West Berlin.
This is where David Bowie recorded his masterpiece Heroes, paving the way for many post-punk and avant-garde acts to follow—such as Mute Records artists like Depeche Mode, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Einsturzende Neubauten, and Fad Gadget.
In a new documentary Hansa Studios: By The Wall 1976-90. directed by Mike Christie, artists such as Gudrun Gut, Alexander Hacke, Barry Adamson, Martin Gore and producers such as Daniel Miller, Flood, Tony Visconti, and Gareth Jones discuss the legacy of the historic studio just meters away from the Berlin Wall.
The documentary recently aired in the UK earlier this month.
