    Klaus Dinger Birthday

    Klaus Dinger (24 March 1946 – 21 March 2008) was a German musician and songwriter most famous for his contributions to the seminal krautrock band Neu!. He was also the guitarist and chief songwriter of new wave group La Düsseldorf and briefly the percussionist of Kraftwerk. Klaus Dinger was born in Scherfede, Westphalia, Germany, to Heinz and Renate Dinger on 24 March 1946. He was their first child. Before he was a year old, his parents moved from the town, which had been badly damaged by an Allied siege at the end of World War II, to the economic centre of the region, Düsseldorf. In 1956 he attended Görres Gymnasium School for the first time. During his time there he was part of an a cappella choir, which he had to leave when his voice broke. He was part of the school swing band (as a drummer) despite having no prior musical experience. He left the school with a Mittlere Reife(German equivalent of leaving school at 16), later accusing the school of misinterpreting his "free mindedness" as misbehaviour.

    Wolfgang Flür Birthday

    Wolfgang Flür (born 17 July 1947) is a German musician, formerly a member of the electronic group Kraftwerk[1] from 1973 to 1987, playing electronic percussion. Flür claims that he also invented the group's electric drums used throughout the 1970s. However, patent records dispute this citing Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter as the creators. Previously he had played an acoustic drum kit in the Düsseldorf 1960s band The Spirits of Sound. Guitarist Michael Rother was also a member of The Spirits of Sound, later forming Neu! with then Kraftwerk drummer Klaus Dinger. In 1997, Flür founded Yamo, which released an album Time Pie, a collaboration with Mouse on Mars. Flür's next release, the 12" and remixes of I Was A Robot, climbed to number 6 in the German club charts. Collaborations with Pizzicato Five and Der Plan founding member Pyrolator have been announced, and the lyrics to the song "Greed" are in Flür's autobiography, but this material remains unreleased.

    Karl Bartos Birthday

    Karl Bartos (born 31 May 1952 in Berchtesgaden, Germany) is a German musician and composer. He was a drummer of college band The Jokers (later The Jolly Jokers in 1975 ) as Carlos Bartos, around 1965 to 1972. Between 1975 and 1991, he was, along with Wolfgang Flür, an electronic percussionist in the electronic music band Kraftwerk. He was originally recruited to play on Kraftwerk's US "Autobahn" tour. In addition to his percussion playing, Bartos was credited with songwriting on the Man-Machine, Computer World, and Electric Café albums and sang one lead vocal on the latter. In 1992 Bartos founded Elektric Music. This new project released the Kraftwerk-style Esperanto in 1993, and then the more guitar-based Electric Music in 1998. In between the two albums, Bartos collaborated with Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr on Electronic's 1996 album Raise the Pressure, and co-wrote material with Andy McCluskey of OMD, which appeared on both Esperanto and OMD's Universal album. In 1998, he also produced an album by Swedish synthpop band the Mobile Homes, much in the style of his work with Electronic: guitar-pop with very slight synthetic references. It was received as a great disappointment to synthpop fans, but it sold more than any of their previous albums and was used in an advert for an airline.

From 1965 Rother played in the band Spirits of Sound, from which other members would later go on to join Kraftwerk (Wolfgang Flür) and Wunderbar. Rother is a multi-instrumentalist (primarily guitar and keyboards) who, along with a catalog of several solo albums starting in 1977, is best known for having co-founded the German group Neu! with drummer Klaus Dinger (five albums between 1971 and 1996), and his collaborative efforts with Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius (aka Cluster) under the name Harmonia (two albums, one in 1974 and 1975, with later 1976 sessions recorded with Brian Eno; the studio tapes for the latter disappeared but were found by Roedelius two decades later; he remixed the tapes and released the results as Tracks and Traces in 1997; Rother was the main producer for the version re-released in 2009). Rother and Dinger were also in a short-lived version of Kraftwerk in 1971, with Florian Schneider, during a time when founding member Ralf Hütter had temporarily left the band (this version of the group was filmed during an appearance on the German music show Beat Club, which has been available sporadically on VHS and DVD).

    Signals For Fire

    „Signals For Fire“ is his most current creation. A compilation of electronic moods, small brainstorms and bizarre gimmicks with sounds/noises. A kind of musical dairy which was orignally conceived by Hans-Joachim Roedelius, whom he´d like to dedicate this album, besides some of his other big role models
  12. At the third release, of the give away marathon, in December, comes the album „Construction Time On Lunar Landscape“ and the videoclip, with the eponymous titel, by Christian Fiesel. The Album is Christian Fiesel´s first and only dark ambient album. He loves the darkness and depth of this music. Endless layers of samples, temporal distortion and the huge rooms of echoes.

    Smile With An Ambience

The video was produced again by the video artists „Where Death Is Most Alive“, from Greece. „Smile With An Ambience“ always planned as a complete ambient record. Miniatures made from time running backwards. During the recording sessions things shifted more and more from dark plains to pulsating fix stars of melodies, sending out from the distance. Also here you can notice Christian Fiesel´s compassion for space and its audible possibilties.
