Refracted Input

Clare O’Farrell’s blog on books, TV, films, Michel Foucault, universities etc. etc.

It is hard to appreciate now how innovative Kraftwerk were in their early days (and indeed in their later days!) and the sheer effort and technical expertise it took to produce this music. You can see the concentrated effort of the musicians here as they perform this great version of their classic track ‘Autobahn’. It’s also a good demonstration of some of the excellent atmospheric cinematography that you see showcasing some live music performances in the 1960s and 1970s. One shot I particularly like here is the closeup of the cables moving as the electronic drumsets are being played. The musicians’ names in futuristic neon is a nice touch as well.

The future that never happened…
