Krautrock • Germany

Kosmischer LaŁfer biography
KOSMICHER LAUFER is a music project founded by Martin ZEICHNETE. In the time of the early 70's, ZEICHNETE worked as a sound editor for Deutche Film-Aktiengesellschaft in what was at the time East Germany and listened at the time rising musical bands from West Germany like KRAFTWERK, NEU! and CLUSTER. Inspired by this electronic and krautrock music he started working on music which would serve as a training aid for athletes, ZEICHNETE being a runner himself. This led him to a Berlin studio where he and fellow musicians worked for National Olympic Commity in 1972, and this is when the name and the project KOSMICHER LAUFER ('Cosmic Runner') were conceived. ZEICHNETE worked on music for many different recreational purposes until 1984 when the project was shut down.

In 2013 Unknown Capability Recordings began releasing music from the project and related all the information regarding the music and it's alleged history.

Review by Einwahn

— First review of this album —
3 stars Kosmischer Lšufer is a new twist on the retro concept - pretending to come from the past while mimicking a pioneering musical style. The three albums released by this artist are (actually superb) recreations of the early 1970's music of Neu!, Kraftwerk and Cluster. For myself, there just wasn't enough of the 'motorik' genre produced historically, so I applaud this impressive hoax.

The story on the band's website is that the music was created by 'Martin Zeichnete', an East German contemporary of the above bands, who produced it for the secret Olympic training programme of the DDR. The tapes were eventually recovered and released by the vendor company, Unknown Capability Recordings.

The high production quality of these recordings makes a DDR origin implausible for anyone who made even the briefest visit to that state. (I can claim, at least, to have ridden in a Wartburg vehicle.) And the regular album release programme, with musical development from one album to another, tells you this is a modern artist.

But never mind that, this music is very pleasant and creative. Volume Two is my favourite of the releases so far, but all are genuinely recommended to motorik fans.

Verdict: zum Spass.

Thanks to historian9 for the artist addition.
