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.
Looking forward to this year very much! Looking forward to more concerts with my band mates and media artists Sascha Wild (left) and Robert Baumanns! Looking forward to brilliant audiences and cool locations! There are things to come which we're absolutely excited about. Stay tuned, check our website and the social network for further information of our projects and plans!
