25.08.11

Wolfgang Voigt , co-founder and co-owner of Kompakt, will release his ‘Kafkatrax’ collection in a compilation on the Cologne-based Profan this fall.

Similar to last year’s ‘Freiland Klaviermusik’, he takes on an avant-garde approach on ‘Kafka Trax’ – reciting Kafka’s writings, focusing on human voice, while chopping it up and layering it over a 4/4 pulse.

The 11 ‘Kafka Trax’ songs were originally released over the past fews months in a limited, hand-painted and three-part vinyl-only series.
