Ever wondered what those 4 Kraftwerk dudes are exactly doing behind their keyboards? Check this video!

A video on YouTube, filmed at the Amsterdam club Paradiso (back in 2015), is picking up steam again as it is being shared a lot lately. It shows Kraftwerk playing “Trans Europe Express” and more precisely zooms in on what the 4 Kraftwerkers are doing behind their keyboards. And that’s not exactly what many will think.

The current members of Kraftwerk are Ralf Hütter (the only remaining founding member when the band started in 1970), Fritz Hilpert (1989–present), Henning Schmitz (1991–present), Falk Grieffenhagen (2012–present). The latter is a live video technician and you’ll see some of his work below.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
