via the RSGB: Kraftwerk jams with astronaut on ISS

Pioneering 1970s electronic music band Kraftwerk performed an extremely unusual duet last week, playing live on stage in conjunction with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst aboard the International Space Station.

The event took place as part of Stuttgart’s Jazz Open Festival on 20 July 2018.

After introductions, they played a special duet version of the track Spacelab, for which Alexander Gerst had a tablet computer configured with virtual synthesisers.

You can find full details on Gerst’s blog.
