Performs Songs from the Albums 'Kraftwerk' and 'Kraftwerk 2'

Led by Reinhold Friedl, Zeitkratzer are an ensemble of musicians who work with and reinterpret compositions by an ever reaching range of avant-garde and fringe artists. Their list of works include Lou Reed, Whitehouse, Throbbing Gristle, Stockhausen, John Cage. Now they turn their mad orchestra’s gaze upon the early works of Kraftwerk, specifically their first two albums.

Zeitkratzer with Terre Thaemlitz
Deproduction Live

Terre Thaemlitz and Zeitkratzer, two noted and highly-respected names in experimental music. This release finds the Zeit guys meeting Thaemlitz on Terre’s terms, adapting and performing pieces from Deproduction with acoustic chamber instruments. Recorded live in Berlin last year, spreading over two CDs.

Reinhold Friedl: KORE

Zeitkratzer are not your usual classically trained orchestral collective. They’ve collaborated with Merzbow and Keiji Haino and they covered Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music in its entirety. On Reinhold Friedl: KORE from Karlrecords they bring their experimental skills to reinterpret classical and electronic composer Reinhold Freidl, making an incredible electroacoustic racket in process.

Zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino
Live At Jahrhunderthalle Bochum

Avant noisemaker Keiji Haino joins forces with the equally warped visions of Zeitkratzer once more, the group responsible for bringing Lou Reed's 'Metal Machine Music' to life as an on-stage arrangement. On 'Live At Jahrhunderthalle Bochum', Haino ditches his putrid noise extravagances, refusing to use any electronics unless they're amplifying his voice. The music is minimal so that Haino's unique voice can be zoned in on.
