In the mid ’90s the Dayton, Ohio music scene became a hot spot, generating worldwide buzz from the influential indie rock being produced there (The Breeders, Guided by Voices). Arguably the most innovative of them all was the band Brainiac, led by musical genius and insanely charismatic front man Tim Taylor. The band was opening for Beck and being courted by major labels when Tim was tragically killed in a bizarre auto accident, leaving his family and bandmates to pick up the pieces. This film explores the band’s music, legacy, massive influence on pop culture, and how people survive and cope with the loss of loved ones.

Compelling… Transmissions After Zero chronicles Brainiac’s unlikely rise and subsequent fall with intelligence and humor.” – Variety
