ZEITKRATZER - PERFORMS SONGS FROM THE ALBUMS KRAFTWERK AND KRAFTWERK (LP)


"2nd volume of "modern composition supergroup" (The Wire) Zeitkratzer's re-interpretations of early compositions by electronic pioneers Kraftwerk. In more than two decades Zeitkratzer has created an astonishing broad catalogue from the obligatory (20th century avant-garde composers like Cage or Stockhausen) to the unexpected (electronic artists such as Carsten Nicolai, Terre Thaemlitz or underground experimentalists like Throbbing Gristle and Keiji Haino) - but hardly anyone was prepared for the ensemble's choice of early Kraftwerk pieces! When volume 1 was released in 2017, Zeitkratzer founder and director Reinhold Friedl announced that there'll be a volume 2 of course - and here it is : from the opening drony horns of "Harmonika" to the subtle guitar of the album closer "Wellenlaenge", the 4 tracks own all the interpretatory and aesthetic acerbity the ensemble is known and praised for."
