Lyrics Lounge: Session XV

February 11, 2011

Düsseldorf? Is that a kind of cheese? Where do you buy it? What does it do? It doesn’t take batteries? No seriously,  Düsseldorf is the  German birthplace of Kraftwerk, an electronic music band  formed by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in 1970. When with asked the students in Lyrics Lounge about electronic music, they described it as Techno music. They did not realize that making music with electronics was the beginning of Techno pop and similar genres. On February 11, Lyric Lounge explored the topic “Electronic Music Appreciation + Krafterwerk” to introduce students to the origins of today electronic music scene and the digital instrument industry. We screened a documentary entitled Kraftwerk and the Electronic Revolution.
