Kraftwerk, and the Electronic revolution – documentary

Kraftwerk And The Electronic Revolution by Thomas Arnold

Kraftwerk And The Electronic Revolution

This long documentary (180 minutes !!!) attempts to cover the rise of German electronic and experimental music from the 1960s, centered on Kraftwerk but focusing on the large avant-garde/ kraut rock scene that developed in the eastern Europe.

Aside form the many clips, both from videoclip and concerts, very interesting to me is the long interview with Karl Bartos (member of Kraftwerk form 1975 unitl the 90’s).

it’s a long documentary butĀ  very nice producedĀ  which reminds me of another fabulous music documentary aired on BBC4 called Synth Britannia, here the topic is the english new wave but the seed still came from the Kraftwerk.
