Blimey...Kraftwerk announce residency at New York's MomaGerman electronic music pioneers will play eight of their classic albums at New York's Museum of Modern Art
Kraftwerk are to cement their position as art-pop pioneers by revisiting their back catalogue – at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Düsseldorf four-piece will play eight of their classic albums over eight nights at Moma, performing their best-loved music alongside projected 3D imagery.
They begin with 1974's Autobahn on 10 April and finish a week later, with 2003's Tour de France Soundtracks. Even their greatest hits collection, The Mix, will be performed. The intention, according to Moma, is to "coalesce" Kraftwerk's oeuvre into a single "work of art", bringing together "melodic music and ambient sound, elaborate stage sets, live performance and performance by robots, their trademark videos and logo-like still imagery". All their music will be specially adapted for what Moma is billing as an exhibition, entitled Kraftwerk Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8.http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/feb/16/kraftwerk-residency-new-york-moma
