The Kraftwerk project started in 1970 at the Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany. Within a few years Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic "sound paintings" and musical experimentation with tapes and synthesizers. With their visions of the future, Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age. Their compositions, using innovative looping techniques and computerised rhythms, have had a major international influence across a entire range of music genres. Their use of robotics and other technical innovations in live performance illustrates Kraftwerk’s belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine in creating art.
The Kraftwerk live experience is a perfectly synchronised audio-visual spectacle complete with pristine digital sound and 3-D projections. It is a pure electronic art-rave.
Among others, in 2013 Kraftwerk presented their Catalogue 12345678 across eight nights at London’s Tate Modern, the Opera House in Sydney and at the Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo. Festival appearances in the same summer of 2013 also left audiences deeply moved and impressed.
