Kraftwerk Retrospective With Eight Night Concert Kraftwerk Retrospective With Eight Night Concert

And yet again, Charles gets everything cool in his hometown. The Museum of Modern Art celebrates the work of German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk with a dense retropsective and 8 consectutive night concert. According to MOMA’s announcment.

“Over eight consecutive nights, MoMA presents a chronological exploration of the sonic and visual experiments of Kraftwerk with a live presentation of their complete repertoire in the Museum’s Marron Atrium. Each evening consists of a live performance and 3-D visualization of one of Kraftwerk’s studio albums—Autobahn (1974), Radio-Activity (1975), Trans-Europe Express (1977), The Man-Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), Techno Pop (1986), The Mix (1991), and Tour de France (2003)—in the order of their release. Kraftwerk will follow each evening’s album performance with additional compositions from their catalog, all adapted specifically for this exhibition. This reinterpretation showcases Kraftwerk’s historical contributions to and contemporary influence on global sound and image culture.”

Before one gets excited about the possibility of an original line-up, the current Kraftwerk only retains one core member (Ralf Hütter) along with various replacement parts. I am sure it will still be fabulous either way. If we were Charles, we would recommend the Radio-Activity night as well as the Friday night party with Man Machine. Regardless, any night will most likely be amazing so go celebrate cold precisioned electronic music with Kraftwerk. Tickets are $25.00 and will go on sale to the public on Wednesday, February 22, at 12:00 p.m.
