Michael Rother & Moby - Two Generations of Electronic Legneds: The Echoes Interviews
This weekend on Echoes, two legends of electronic music, Michael Rother of Neu & Harmonia and Moby.
Michael Rother.is a legend of progressive rock and electronic music, In the early 1970s he was in an early version of Kraftwerk, co-founded the bands Neu and Harmonia and went on to developed a distinctive guitar sound and driving rhythmic approach on a string of solo albums. He hasn’t put out new music in 16 years, but now has a new box set of his music, Solo II, along with a brand new album, sort of called Dreaming. You’ll hear what we mean when John Diliberto talks with Michael Rother.
Moby talks about his presciently timely new album, All Visible Objects. Written mostly in 2019, its themes of revolution, isolation and contemplation seem to fit right in with these pandemic and protesting times. All Visible Objects harkens back to his dance and DJ days in the 1990s and also goes in more introspective, forlorn directions. Join John Diliberto when he talks to Moby on Echoes.
