Kraftwerk - The Mix | Moma, Night 7 | Monday 04/14/12


I was supremely fortunate this week, because I got to see Kraftwerk’s 7th performance in their 8 night retrospective at the MoMA. This show covered their 1991 remix album “The Mix.” The sound was excellent, just at the right levels, and behind the “operators” was a massive screen showing 3D visualizations in time with the music. The above pictures don’t give due justice to the experience, but I was able to snap some quick photos from my phone during the show (I had my flash turned off and my screen brightness all the way down, sorry gothamist, your princess is in another castle). Enjoy!

As you can see it didn’t follow the album exactly, but that was fine with me!

Also, I added some HTML5 canvas pixelation stuff above and the slide show viewer just because.
