A new exhibit is being put on at the Cité De La Musique this spring and summer titled Electro: From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk that explores electronic from its inception in Chicago and Detroit to its rise as a global cultural and music movement through the lens of artists like Daft Punk and Kraftwerk.
The exhibit will open on April 6 and run until August 11 in the Philharmonie de Paris part of the Cité De La Musique.
Soundtracked by Laurent Garnier, who revisits music electronic music from Kraftwerk, all the way to Daft Punk, the architecture is built out in a way to resemble a rave, to create an experience that is auditory, visual and participatory.
Instruments, sculptures, photographs, installations and more will be on display during the exhibit from key figures in electronic music like Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre, Robert Moog, Daft Punk or Juan Atkins. If you have been to various Parisian music museums, like the Musée de la Musique next door, you know they will have an excellent exhibit.
Kraftwerk will also be performing their 3D live show on July 11-13 at the Philharmonie in support of the exhibit. Get more info on the group's website.
