Just pure beauty.

The PA soeakers remind me of Luigi Russolo's Intonarumori, they were masters of the stage set.

Was flicking through some interviews with Wolfgang (and Karl) the other night on youTube. I'd forgotten the historical context of that work - he basically had to train himself to play minimally with no groove, swing, fills, etc. He was quite unique in that way. We take it for granted now but then it must have seemed almost alien.

Only the three of them? But with the electronic kit? Must be from a very specific period. Lovely to see.
