Kraftwerk is a multimedia project initiated in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider in Germany, and in less than a decade, it had already gained international recognition for its revolutionary electronic "soundscapes" and musical experimentation with robotics and other technical innovations. Since then, they have been at the forefront of musical and visual innovation, with compositions that use synthetic voices and computerized rhythms that have had a significant international influence across a range of musical genres, from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop.
In their live performances, Kraftwerk - Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen - illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both humans and machines. Starting with a retrospective of their catalog at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012, in recent years Kraftwerk has returned full circle to its origins within the art scene of late 1960s Düsseldorf. The series of 3D concerts at MoMA was followed by performances at Tate Modern Turbine Hall (London), Akasaka Blitz (Tokyo), Opera House (Sydney), Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris), Neue National Galerie (Berlin), and Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao). In 2014, Ralf Hütter and his former partner were honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
In October 2021, Kraftwerk was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, coinciding with their latest highly successful world tours. In 2022, they will take the stage at the Teatro Real in Madrid for the seventh edition of the Universal Music Festival, bringing a radically different style to what has ever been seen on its stage.
