    Default Kraftwerk to release "3D album" in surround sound

    Performances of Kraftwerk's visual shows from their 3D Tour will be released in surround sound on Bluray in late autumn.

    In the Rolling Stone interview there's a hint that they might release their main catalog in surround on blu ray - though probably from the live performances of each album.

    They must not have rights to the studio albums since everything must be "live".

    It "may" be because the new arrangements work with the current 3D visuals, so they're going with that. I'd buy them at a reasonable price and later buy the original albums remixed for surround too, assuming I'm still alive.

    Hmm, when I read the article I took it to be more about the imagery they use being translated to 3D.

    We've been doing so much, concentrating on Kraftwerk since Autobahn. That's when we really started with electronic symphonies. We're concentrating on our work now and for the future, so we haven't found the time to really look to the past.
    "Looking to the past" is what they are doing since "The Mix", putting out the same music again for the 5th time now (1.original releases, 2.the mix, 3.minimum-maximum, 4.catalogue, 5.blu-ray)

    Well, I suppose Hütter believes Kraftwerk has a formula that works, so why mess with it. Let's just hope they put together a great concert with an impressive discrete surround mix that's as good as (or even better) than Minimum-Maximum.

    As for new material (post-The Mix), we've always got Karl Bartos's albums. It would be nice to have those with a discrete 5.1 surround mix.

    For anyone interested, here's a good interview with Bartos...

    Great interview!! Nice catch Lute...I rather like this question/answer...

    If you could get a supergroup together, who would you recruit?
    Today it would be Jimi Hendrix, Bernard Sumner, Johnny Marr and Claude Debussy.

    Looks like it's all re-purposed for live, and that's not a bad thing !!

    - it is electronic afterall.

    Like Lute surmises, I too think it should be as good as min/max.-DISCRETE.

    I'm more than a little tired of KW just rehashing old stuff in one fashion or another instead of actually creating something new....but yeah, I'll probably cave in and order the deluxe set.

    Hopefully, the LIVE nature of these recordings should allow the group to expand on those early original 8 Kraftwerk records and the state of the art sonics and surround envelopment might render these chestnuts in a whole new light.

    In this world of dwindling surround releases, having Kraftwerk release this boxset, IMO, is truly extraordinary.

    Wish I could like Kraftwerk, but just can't. Maybe I should buy a record player and go back to the old days ?

    Not to worry.

    I used to make 'arty' Super8 movies back in the day and used many a Kraftwerk vinyl record as soundtracks to my films. I had un uncanny ability to match music to my films and it was almost as though Kraftwerk composed their music with my films in mind [one could ONLY wish].

    The sound was always, IMO, state of the art.

    Some VERY trippy stuff!

    I'm all in for the super duper ultra deluxe version!

    Best visual show I ever attended was Kraftwerk at the Riv in Chicago in 1998 (?). It was pretty incredible musically, too.

    Perhaps I missed it, but is the original 80's version of Tour de France included, which was a 12" (later a CD.)?
