SOMA LYRA-8 into KORG MS-20

documentary: Kraftwerk – Pop Art

Provokativ, experimentell, radikal, aber auch kommerziell und clubtauglich – all das ist Kraftwerk. Die Dokumentation nähert sich dem Phänomen und untersucht die popkulturelle Relevanz einer öffentlichkeitsscheuen Band aus dem Rheinland, die eine der einflussreichsten Popgruppen aller Zeiten wurde.

This awesome documentary is currently available online in the arte mediathek.

Soehngenetic – Wise Kids on Pillows (2012)

Music taken from the 2012 Soehngenetic album “Pseudolectual”. Super 8 material filmed by Hans Söhngen in 1982. For more information please visit http://www.soehngenetic.com

If you are into electronic music then don’t miss to check out Soehngenetic’s just released album “Pseudolectual”, available on bandcamp: http://soehngen.bandcamp.com/album/pseudolectual.
It’s worth mentioning that although he owns gear like a space echo and some BBD delays, on this production NastyDLA was used almost exclusively.
