In 1986 Beverly Glenn-Copeland self-released a cassette of seven songs recorded at home using a Yamaha keyboard, a Roland drum machine and an Atari computer. Decades later, now living as Glenn Copeland, he was astonished to discover that this release, titled Keyboard Fantasies, was being hailed as an influential precursor to modern electronic music. In documenting Glenn’s life and return to performing, director Posy Dixon has gifted us with a film that is every bit as soothing as the music it sets out to celebrate.
