Join us for a night featuring our favorite kraut albums.
Krautrock (also called kosmische Musik, German for “cosmic music”) is a broad genre of experimental rock that developed in West Germany in the late 1960s and early 1970s among artists who blended elements of psychedelic rock, electronic music, and avant-garde composition among other sources.
An offshoot of Krautrock, Berlin School is a genre of electronic music which originated in West Berlin in the 1970s. The sound consists basically of ambient elements combined with short, repeating sequenced runs of notes, which gives the music a rhythmic element. It was shaped by artists such as Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, and Manuel Gottsching. Innovative Berlin School recordings were a precursor of ambient music.
Join the team of ISC for a night of favorite Krautrock and Berlin School selections from Can, Ash Ra Tempel, Harmonia and beyond.
