Kraftwerk’s Schneider Quits the Group

 

 

Brings to an end a
fruitful 40-year collaboration.

Yesterday the following, succinct, bit of news was posted to
the Kraftwerk website Minimum Maximum:

 

 

 

 

Florian Schneider
leaves Kraftwerk… Florian Schneider leaves Kraftwerk after a 40 years
partnership with Ralf Hütter. This partnership has generated an incredible
music and  huge advances in music
technology. Florian is a great musician, always seeking the  perfect sound through technology. Refined  and perfected sounds and vocoders to  impossible levels of perfection. Our thanks
for the state of art that led to Kraftwerk’s music all these years. And our
wishes for success Florian’s new projects as well as to this new Kraftwerk.

 

 

 

And that is that. The lack of specifics is, perhaps,
appropriate, considering how notoriously guarded, hermetic, even, Kraftwerk has
been with regards to its public face. More details as (if) they emerge.

 

 

Meanwhile, some Kraftwerk tour dates:
