Karl Bartos - Communication LTD

Artist: Karl Bartos
P: 2003

Enchanting melodies, glamour and somehow embarrassing (but charming) lyrics in vocoder style. Everything we always loved Kraftwerk for.
"Communication" is surely not a great show, but an ambitious update of Techno Pop at his best.
This is the LTD Version with the Video as Bonus on the CD.

Karl Bartos - Off the Record

Artist: Karl Bartos
P: 2012

Karl Bartos' new album is an audio-visual sensation! Lost for many years, some of his early music has been reconceived and re-contextualised in a thrilling modern setting. Here's the story: during Kraftwerk's heyday Karl Bartos wrote – off the record – a secret acoustic diary. Based on his musical jottings – rhythms, riffs, hooks, sounds, chords and melodies – this is what he has come up with today: twelve brand new, exciting, timeless songs.

Karl Bartos - The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

Artist: Karl Bartos
P: 2024

Musician and writer Karl Bartos has long been admirer of Weimar-era culture. During his time in Kraftwerk, he helped create the stunning track 'Metropolis', directly inspired by a band viewing of the classic 1927 Fritz Lang film of the same name. The original orchestral music composed for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari by Giuseppe Becce had long been lost and in 2005, after watching the film, Bartos imagined what it would be like to create an entirely new one in the 21st Century in his home studios in Hamburg. Now with crystal clear images, digitally restored by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Foundation, the film is visually the best quality it has ever been, and now, with Bartos' soundtrack, there is impressive sound to go with the haunting vision.
