COMMUNICATION RELOADED
We are happy to announce: Karl Bartos' so called lost album »Communication« will be re-released on 25 March as CD and LP+CD on Trocadero/Hamburg! Originally released in 2003 it has now been entirely and pristinely re-mastered by Michael Schwabe, Monoposto Düsseldorf/Germany, complete with the bonus track »Camera Obscura«. »Communication« will be available in digital formats for the first time. »Communication« is the first solo album by Karl Bartos – 13 years after leaving the legendary electronic group Kraftwerk – and it's a concept album: “»Communication« is about the way images shape our view of the world and how electronic media is going to change the contents of our culture”, Bartos says in 2003. And he was right: this theme remains as relevant as ever in 2016. The world of media described and envisioned back then has now simply become a day-to-day reality.

Q&A BEIM KLINGT GUT! SYMPOSIUM
Premiere am neu eröffneten Kunst- und Mediencampus Hamburg: KLINGT GUT! heisst das erste Symposium für Tongestaltung, das die Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg (HAW) und die Hamburger Student Section der Audio Engineering Society auf die Beine gestellt haben. Mehr als 50 internationale Künstler und Wissenschaftler informieren an drei Tagen in Workshops, Vorträgen und Podiumsgesprächen über Sounddesign, Klangkunst und elektroakustische Musik im Zusammenhang mit visueller Gestaltung. Abgerundet wird das Symposium mit Live Performances und Installationen. Eigentlich ist es unmöglich, über Musik zu sprechen, heißt es. Am Freitag, 05.06., 18 Uhr, unternehmen Karl Bartos und Ästhetik-Professor Rainer Homann einen Versuch. Im Anschluss des Gesprächs beantworten Bartos und Homann gerne Fragen des Pubkliums.

THANKS, MATES!
Being awarded as "The Man with the Golden Ear" at Soundedit 2014 in Lodz/Poland has been an experience for itself. This award is huge, I tell you. But what has thrilled me more than anything has been two little video clips the festival committee has produced as a surprise for me and the smashing audience. I feel honoured and glad for these fantastic words! Thanks, mates, for that! And see you soon! Andy McCluskey / Paul Humphreys: Peter Hook:

CONGRATULATIONS, KRAFTWERK
Am 25. Januar 2014 erhält Kraftwerk als erste deutsche Popgruppe überhaupt den Grammy Award für ihr Lebenswerk. Karl Bartos, langjähriges Mitglied und Co-Autor vieler bekannter Elektro-Hits der Düsseldorfer, startet an diesem Abend in Köln seine erste Deutschlandtour seit acht Jahren. "Ich freue mich riesig mit meiner ehemaligen Band. Es ist eine große Ehre, neben den Beatles oder den Isley Brothers für das Lebenswerk ausgezeichnet zu werden", so Karl Bartos, der von 1975 bis 1990 Mitglied der Elektro-Pioniere war und als Co-Autor von „Die Roboter“, „Das Modell“, „Neonlicht“ , „Computer Liebe“, „Der Telefon Anruf“, „Tour de France“ Musikgeschichte schrieb. "Natürlich denke ich hier aber auch gerne an die anderen früheren Bandmitglieder Florian Schneider-Esleben und Wolfgang Flür, die ja ebenso maßgeblich am Erfolg der Gruppe beteiligt waren." Im März 2013 erschien Bartos' aktuelles Soloalbum OFF THE RECORD – von deutschen und internationalen Medien mit Euphorie gefeiert. Kickstart für seine erste Deutschland-Tour seit acht Jahren ist der Abend der Verleihung des Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Bartos: "Das ist ein ganz toller Zufall – für mich wird das ein ganz besonderes Konzert. Und ich bin glücklich, es in der Live Music Hall in Köln mit Freunden und Fans feiern zu können." PRESS: (...) Die Hit-Maschine (...) Die Zeit (...) weil Bartos eben nie nur der "Zweite von links" war, also ein austauschbarer Zuarbeiter, sondern an vielen der großen und berühmten (...)-Songs als Co-Autor mitgeschrieben hat. (...) Spiegel Online (...) (Bartos) erforscht weiterhin die Romantik der Maschinen. (...) Denn eins hat er dem Spätwerk des Museumswächters Hütter ganz klar voraus: Melodien, Songs und ein Gespür für die Romantik von Einsen und Nullen. (...)
