eavesdroppings: Kraftwerk’s Ralf Hütter

Standard

eavesdroppings: muse-nourishing s**t i hear musicians
(and other creative artists) say

I don’t listen to records at home at all. I don’t listen to so much music. I COMPOSE music.

–Kraftwerk co-founder Ralf Hütter, in a rare 2003 interview with BBC 6 Music host Andrew Collins

and later:

ANDREW COLLINS: If I gave you an acoustic guitar now, could you play a tune on it–are you good on the guitar?

RALF HUTTER: No, I play keyboards.

AC: So that’s your only instrument, as it were.

RH: Yes. And… the keyboard as a steering wheel.

AC: So it’s not the actual playing of the keys that matters; it’s what you get at the other end of it.

RH: Yes.

AC: That makes sense.
