Stuart chats to digital sound artist Olivia Louvel about a new compelling sculpture-inspired work. The electronic delight of Kraftwerk’s third album Ralf und Florian is revisited.
Stuart chats to digital sound artist Olivia Louvel about a compelling new project “The Sculptor Speaks”, created by using sound recordings of the British modernist sculptor Barbara Hepworth talking about her creative process.
This week’s featured album is 1973’s Ralf und Florian, the third record from Kraftwerk. Laced with youthful experimentalism, it was made whilst Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider were two young visionary students in Düsseldorf and marked the first move towards a more realised sound. Other adventurous offerings include French garage-psych, contemporary classical guitar and hard electronic beats from the bedrooms of South London.
