The music contained in this publication was perceived and recorded in 1973, after Kranemann’s collaboration with KRAFTWERK (1967-1971) and NEU! (1972). The music is a genuine mix between the music and sound of both groups at that time (think Kraftwerk 1 & 2 LP’s and first LP of NEU!) and therefor an important document for everyone who’s interested in this era German experimental music.
Rumor has it that several members of Kraftwerk are involved.
