As part of our Creative Spirit sessions, Wolfgang Flür, most notably known for helping shape the future of electronic music, came in for an exclusive interview, as well as an intimate Q&A session with our students.

Whilst you may not immediately recognise the name, Wolfgang Flür, you will recognise the name Kraftwerk! As Kraftwerk’s electronic percussionist, he is most well-known for co-creating arguably the most iconic electronic music albums of all time; Autobahn. Radioactivität, Trans-Europa Express, Die Mensch-Maschine, Computerwelt and Electric Café.

After leaving Kraftwerk, Wolfgang then launched his solo career, under the name Yamo, and released his album, Time Pie. Without Wolfgang, and the great work of Kraftwerk, electronic music wouldn’t be what it is today.
