Krautrock from the Author: Nikolaos Kotsopoulos. Krautrock: Cosmic Rock and its Legacy charts the history of this influential music genre, from its roots in free jazz, psychedelia and the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen, to the groundbreaking experiments of Faust, Kraftwerk and Can. The late 1960s in West Germany was a period of profound breakthroughs, upheavals and reversals. Out of this climate, a music scene exploded that would forever change the face of western rock; at times anarchic, at others mystical, magickal, or utopian, it pushed rock beyond any known limits. Illustrated with concert photos, posters, record cover art and other rare visual material, and also including essays by Michel Faber, Erik Davis, David Stubbs, Ken Hollings and testimonials from Gavin Russom (Delia and Gavin/Black Meteoric Star), Plastic Crimewave, Stephen Thrower (Coil/Cyclobe), and Ann Shenton (Add N to (X)) this is an essential compendium to a music whose spirit and ideas still vibrate through contemporary culture today.

Extrait: Kraftwerk ( centrale electrique en allemand) est un groupe allemand de musique electronique qui a joue un role preponderant dans le developpement de cette musique. Leurs productions novatrices et experimentales ont influence un certain nombre de groupes new wave des annees 1980. La sonorite musicale du groupe se caracterise par la combinaison d'une ligne de basse et d'une rythmique electrique a une harmonique et une melodie repetitive faite a partir de synthetiseurs, accompagnee de paroles minimalistes chantees ou vocoderises dans plusieurs langues (allemand, francais, espagnol, anglais, russe, japonais, italien). Le groupe Kraftwerk a ete fonde en 1970 par Florian Schneider-Esleben et Ralf Hutter. Le premier joue de la flute et du violon, le second du piano et de l'orgue. Ils se sont rencontres pendant leurs etudes au Conservatoire de Dusseldorf a la fin des annees 1960. Leurs gouts partages pour la musique experimentale electronique que la presse qualifiera plus tard de mouvance krautrock scellent definitivement leur amitie. Apres une premiere experience au sein du groupe allemand Organisation jugee non satisfaisante, le duo sort les albums Kraftwerk (1971), Kraftwerk 2 (1972) et Ralf und Florian (1973). Leur musique tres avant-gardiste rencontre un succes mitige. En 1974, le groupe recrute deux...

Auszug: Tangerine Dream ist eine Musikformation aus Deutschland, die vor allem wegen ihrer Pionierarbeit auf dem Gebiet der elektronischen Musik bedeutsam ist. So gilt die Band neben Ash Ra Tempel und Agitation Free als Wegbereiter der Berliner Schule, wahrend die fruhe Phase der Gruppe auch zum Krautrock gezahlt wird. Oft wird die Musik von Tangerine Dream auch dem Musikgenre New Age zugeordnet (so gab es z. B. eine Grammy-Nominierung in dieser Sparte), in Interviews distanziert sich die Band jedoch von dieser Kategorisierung. Eher lasst sich ihre Musik neben der gelegentlichen Kategorisierung "Progressive Rock" auch als sinfonische Musik oder als eine Form von Ambient mit Schwerpunkt auf elektronischer Klangerzeugung und mit Einflussen aus der Rockmusik bezeichnen. Aber keine dieser stilistischen Einordnungen beschreibt ihre Musik prazise - Tangerine Dream ist an sich schon ein eigenstandiger Musikstil. Wenngleich innerhalb Deutschlands die Band Tangerine Dream bezuglich ihres Bekanntheitsgrades immer etwas im Schatten von Kraftwerk steht, so zahlt sie weltweit, neben beispielsweise den Scorpions, zu den wenigen deutschen Supergruppen" im Bereich Popularmusik, die eine relevante internationale...

Krautrock from the Author: Frederic P. Miller. Krautrock is a generic name for the experimental music scene that appeared in Germany in the late 1960s and gained popularity throughout the 1970s, especially in Britain. BBC DJ John Peel in particular is largely credited with spreading the reputation of krautrock outside of the German- speaking world.

Future Days from the Author: David Stubbs. West Germany following the Second World War was a country in shock: estranged from its recent history, and adrift from the rest of Europe. But this disorientating landscape proved fertile ground for a generation of musicians who, from the 1960s onwards, would develop the experimental and various sounds that became known as Krautrock. Eschewing the Anglo-American jazz/blues tradition, they took their inspiration from elsewhere: the mysticism of the East; the fractured classicism of Stockhausen; the pneumatic repetition of industry and the dense forests of the Rhineland; the endless winding of Autobahns. Faust, Neu!, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Dl II, Can and Kraftwerk. These may not all be household names, but the influence of their ruminative, expansive compositions upon Western popular music is incalculable. These groups were key to the development of postpunk, electronica and ambient music. Without them Bowie would not have made his Berlin trilogy, Talking Heads would have been a straight-ahead rock band, and the Pet Shop Boys would have a completely different stage act. Future Days is an in-depth study of this meditative, sometimes abstract, often very beautiful music and the groups that made it, throwing light on the social and political context that informed them. It's an indispensable book for those wanting to understand how much of today's music came about, and to discover a wealth of highly influential and pioneering musicians.

Can Band from the Author: Frederic P. Miller. Can was an experimental rock band formed in West Germany in 1968. One of the first "krautrock" groups, they rejected American influences and incorporated strong minimalist and world music elements into their often psychedelic music. Can constructed their music largely through free improvisation and editing, which bassist Holger Czukay referred to as "instant compositions." They had only occasional commercial success, with singles such as "Spoon" and "I Want More" reaching national singles charts. However, through albums such as Tago Mago (1971) and Ege Bamyasi (1972), the band exerted a considerable influence on avant-garde, experimental, underground, ambient, new wave and electronic music.
