‹ Back to What's On Icebreaker

23 Jan 2015

Kraftwerk Uncovered 

Following their highly successful Apollo tour, contemporary orchestra Icebreaker focus on the music of Kraftwerk. Drawing from the sonic legacy of Kraftwerk’s back catalogue, they move from the radical early albums to iconic synthesised material from Autobahn, Computer World and Trans-Europe Express.

‘Icebreaker's reinterpretations seemed to delve deep into Kraftwerk's innards, discovering something messy and frightening but more interesting’ The Guardian

Kraftwerk's music is reworked by German soundscape artist J. Peter Schwalm, the evening articulates Kraftwerk’s journey from experimental Krautrock band to international icon, with film by Sophie Clements and Toby Cornish. Purposefully detaching themselves from the dehumanised high-tech of current Kraftwerk shows, this is a nostalgic vision of an earlier era of technological innovation.
