Kraftwerk will be making their way back to Minneapolis at the State Theatre on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. The Kraftwerk project was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. The two set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. By the mid 1970s, Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic ‘sound scapes’ and their musical experimentation with robots and computers. With their visions of the future, Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century.
Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerized rhythms, were a major international influence across an entire range of music genres including electro, hip-hop, techno and synthpop. In their live performances, Kraftwerk illustrates their belief in the cooperation of both men and machine.
