23-10 Kraftwerk Special in Ivy's Music Secrets
Kraftwerk …the influential electronic music project formed in Dusseldorf, Germany. The signature Kraftwerk sound combines driving, repetitive rhythms with catchy melodies, mainly following a Western Classical style of harmony, with a minimalistic and strictly electronic instrumentation. The group’s simplified lyrics are at times sung through a vocoder or generated by computer speech software. Kraftwerk were one of the first groups to popularize electronic music and are considered pineers in the field. In the 1970s and early 1980s, Kraftwerk’s distinctive sound was revolutionary, and has had a lasting effect across many genres of modern music.
