If you’re one of the lucky few with a super-fast Internet connection who nabbed a ticket to Kraftwerk’s eight-night retrospective concert at MoMA, the least you can do is bring your unlucky friends to the accompanying Kraftwerk Music Festival this weekend at PS1. MoMA’s satellite museum has invited electronic music pioneer Juan Atkins and Kraftwerk-collaborating DJ Francois K to create a soundscape installation in the Performance Dome of the courtyard. The enclosed, sound-enhancing space will offer Kraftwerk freaks a safe place to robo-dance to their hearts’ content, taking the occasional break to peruse a selection of books and audio/visual memorabilia for purchase.
