Emil Schult auf STRRR.TV

Emil Schult is a German painter and musician best known for his on- and off collaboration with the conceptual pop group Kraftwerk for which he designed a number of iconic record sleeves. He also co-wrote the lyrics to numerous hits by Kraftwerk such as “Pocket Calculator”, “Trans Europa Express”, “The Model” and “Computer World”, among others. As a student of Gerhard Richter, Dieter Roth and Joseph Beuys in the 1960ies at the Dusseldorf Academy of Art he developed a unique painting style. In recent years he specialized on a new body of work of reverse glass paintings where he both revisited old motifs as well as he developed new images.

THE SOUNDS OF
CHARLES BURCHFIELD

During my work at the Institute of Electronic Arts at the School of Art & Design Alfred University New York in Summer of 2014, I conducted a project with my students which explored the musical content of paintings.
The project can be viewed under: youtu.be/kA9OSKDbCKI

The soundtrack consists of music extracted from the paintings, an instrumental contribution by Yuxuan Kong (Zheng) and small computer based pieces by the author.

The complete project will be presented at the Burchfield Penny Art Institute in Buffalo beginning April 10th 2015 including a musical contribute to composer Charles Ives.

 

»Kraftwerk's 'Trans Europe Express' started the musical revolution«

In 1977 Ralf Hütter and Emil Schult conceived the piece »Trans Europe Express«

The first high-art electronic pop record, »Trans Europe Express« set the tone for the coming revolution, became one of the central texts of hip-hop, pop and electronic dance music.
