Artist portrait of Rother, Michael


Portrait of Rother, Michael


Often labelled as Godfather of ambient Michael Rother has survived quite a few attempts to quote him as godparent to numerous styles of modern electronic music. Nevertheless, musicians and critics around the globe agree that Rother has developed a distinctive, by all means inimitable musical language of his very own.
Since being a member of Kraftwerk in 1971 and acting as a founder-member of NEU! (1972 - 1975) and Harmonia (1973 - 1976) both seventies bands lauded by David Bowie, Brian Eno, OMD, Stereolab, and Autechre as crucial for their own musical growth -, trance/ambient pioneer Michael Rother has always kept breaking new ground. So far Rother's output has sold by a good 1 million units and is echoed in the late-nineties works of post-techno electronic artists such as Underworld and The Chemical Brothers.
Notwithstanding his ever-growing international reputation, after his critically acclaimed album "Traumreisen" (1987) Rother took some time out. Not that Rother had given up making music: He produced new tracks in his studios in Hamburg and the Weserbergland, and in 1993, after years of being under contract to major record-companies, set up his own label Random Records. Random's first offerings couldn't have been more impressive. Following 1993's hit-compilation "Radio (Singles 1977 - 93)" which included 6 new tracks, autumn 1993 to spring 1994 saw the first-time-on-CD-release of Rother's complete catalogue: 7 compact discs, each one containing several bonus-tracks, new pieces and remixed classics. In 1996 a brand-new Michael Rother album hit the streets. On "Esperanza" all of Rother's musical qualities were combined: magic trance-beats, romantic melodies; a perfect combination of synthesized / sampled sounds and hand-played instruments; organic minimal loops.
