Electro-pop godfathers Kraftwerk’s response to the battering of German psyches following WWII was to create a new kind of art that reflected conflicted feelings about the new technological society and the dehumanizing effect its “progress” might wreak in our lives. This broad vision is flavored with a very dry wit in the music and imagery of the group, which they exploit to brilliant effect in their stunningly conceived 3-D presentations. These acclaimed concerts are multilayered events that incorporate cleverly juxtaposed and recontextualized iconic images from the group’s albums, whose own puckishly ambivalent –– and addictively funky –– visions of the future are wired with a deeply ironic nostalgia warped by time and circumstance. The L.A.-based Lyris Quartet open with “ambient” interpretations of lesser-heard Kraftwerk compositions.
