I am thrilled to announce that some of my historical artist and band photographs have been included in a new book about Electronic Body Music called Elektronische Korpermusik and written by Yuma Hampejs and Marcel Schulze. This book is a comprehensive and fascinating exploration of the history, culture and aesthetics of this genre of music that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It features interviews, essays, reviews and photos of some of the most influential and innovative artists and bands in the scene. I just wish I could read German to enjoy it more!
My photos included include Clock DVA, Dive, Nitzer Ebb and Insekt: some of the pioneers and legends of electronic body music, who combined electronic and industrial sounds, electronic beats, aggressive vocals and provocative performances to create a unique and powerful musical expression. I had the privilege of capturing some of their live shows and backstage moments with my camera, and I am honoured that they are now part of this amazing book.
If you are a fan of electronic body music or curious about its origins and evolution, I highly recommend you check out Elektronische Korpermusik. It is a must-have for anyone who appreciates this genre of music and its impact on the contemporary musical landscape.
