Title: Performs Songs from Albums Kraftwerk 2 & Kraftwerk
Artist: Zeitkratzer
Label: Zeitkratzer
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
UPC: 4250137232584
Genre: Electronic

Second 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 catalog 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 one was released in 2017 (ZKR 021CD/KR 035LP), Zeitkratzer founder and director Reinhold Friedl announced that there'll be a volume two of course - and here it is. From the opening drone-y horns of "Harmonika" to the subtle guitar of the album closer "Wellenlänge", the four tracks own all the interpretory and aesthetic acerbity the ensemble is known and praised for. The first album made it immediately into The Wire's "Office Ambience" playlist and Bandcamp Daily's "Best Contemporary Classical Releases". Recorded live at Hellerau, European Centre for the Arts, Dresden in January 2019, Performs Songs From The Albums "Kraftwerk 2" and "Kraftwerk" delivers the compositions that were still missing to complete Zeitkratzer's stunning take on the early, hybrid kraut-esque electronic avantgarde albums Kraftwerk (1970) and Kraftwerk 2 (!972). Mission accomplished! A must-have. Personnel: Reinhold Friedl - direction; Frank Gratkowski - flute, clarinets; Hayden Chisholm - flute, saxophone; Hild Sofie Tajford - French horn; Hilary Jeffery - trombone; Reinhold Friedl - harmonium, piano; Didier Aschour - guitar; Maurice de Martin - drums; Lisa Marie Landgraf - violin; Biliana Voutchkova - violin; Elisabeth Coudoux - violoncello; Ulrich Phillipp - doublebass. CD version comes on digipak.
