Kraftwerk – The Artist
Kraftwerk (German: for “power station”) is a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. Widely considered to be innovators and pioneers of electronic music, they were among the first successful acts to popularise the genre. The group began as part of West Germany’s experimental krautrock scene in the early 1970s before fully embracing electronic instrumentation, including synthesisers, drum machines, vocoders, and home-made experimental musical instruments. On commercially successful albums such as Autobahn (1974), Trans-Europe Express (1977), and The Man-Machine (1978), Kraftwerk developed a self-described “robot pop” style that combined electronic music with pop melodies, sparse arrangements, and repetitive rhythms, while adopting a stylised image including matching suits.
Computer Love – The Song
‘Computer Love’ (German version title: “Computerliebe”) is a song by the German electronic band Kraftwerk. It was released in 1981 on the studio album Computer World and as a single in the same year. The song, released on a double A-sided single along with “The Model”, went on to become number one in the UK Singles Chart. The song was re-arranged and re-recorded for the band’s 1991 studio album The Mix. The melody of “Computer Love” was later used in Coldplay’s song “Talk” on the album X&Y.
The Personal Computer – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a personal desktop computer with a monitor, keyboard and processing unit. A personal computer (PC) is a multi-purpose computer whose size, capabilities, and price make it feasible for individual use. Personal computers are intended to be operated directly by an end user, rather than by a computer expert or technician. Unlike large costly minicomputers and mainframes, where many people may use it at the same time, a personal computer is generally used by individuals.
