+++++++++++++++SORRY, ALREADY SOLD OUT++++++++++++++
On 25 August 2017 Karl Bartos' long-awaited autobiography "Der Klang der Maschine" (The Sound Of The Machine) has been published in Germany. It's the only and first book that reveals the act of creation of Kraftwerk's music - written by someone who's belonged to the inner circle and writing team.
Although the main focus is on Kraftwerk, it is, however, a lot more than a book on the band, it’s also a book about the music that inspired him to become a musician against all odds. It’s about living in the sound of music since the Sixties and about the question how creativity developes and how the meaning of music has changed in the age of streaming.
Exclusively for our shop costumers Karl Bartos will sign a few copies (in German language). Please check out our shop! This special offer is limited and only available until Saturday, 25 August, 8 pm.
"[...] He turns out to be a passionate music historian, who knows about Igor Stravinsky as well as the Beach Boys. His curiosity and his knowledge make Bartos' autobiography Der Klang der Maschine a reading that is also interesting beyond the great theme of Kraftwerk."
