Episode # 34: First ever academic Kraftwerk Conference - In conversation with organiser Uwe Schutte

Titled ‘ Industrielle Volksmusik für das 21. Jahrhundert’, the first ever international academic conference on Kraftwerk will take place at Birmingham’s Aston University on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22, January 2015.

The two-day event will explore the bands influence on virtually every other band ever connected to electronic music but will also have a deeper look at the band as a cultural phenomenon and much more.

The speaker list alone is a feast as it ranges from Cabaret Voltaire’s Stephen Mallinder to world reknown DJ and Ex – Visage member Rusty Egan plus a very special appearance by ex – Kraftwerk Member Wolfgang Fluer.

POEM’s Thomas Janak talked to conference organiser Uwe Schütte about the reasons behind the conference and more.
