About the show

Playing tracks by

Günter Schickert, Roedelius, Michael Rother, Popol Vuh, Neu! and more.

This is a mix I made for a class I'm teaching on the art of sound, an important part of which is of course electronic music, and an important part of *that* is 70s-era Krautrock, so here it is.

A few notes:

The Michael Rother tracks are from Katzenmusik, my favorite of his records, featuring Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Conny Plank in the control room.

Günter Schickert is ridiculously unknown and underrated. This is from his fantastic second record, Uberfällig.

The Popol Vuh cut is an atypically rocking track from the Nosferatu soundtrack, but if I know them it's on a couple of other releases too.

I like Kraftwerk fine, but I've never really liked Autobahn that much. I put the whole thing on for instructive purposes, but it really doesn't sustain interest over 20 minutes (as say Klaus Schulze would).

Some great stuff here - hope you like it!

Hi Mack, good guess! I don't know when the tracks were recorded, but "Geradewohl" was released on 1980's "Selbstportrait III". "Veilchenwurzeln" is from "Wenn Der Südwind Weht" (1981), also on Sky Records. My favorite of his records though would have to be "Selbstportrait II" so be sure to check that one out also.
