For this New Sounds program, it's a step beyond your pocket calculator -we'll hear all sorts of arrangements of Kraftwerk songs. There'll be an acoustic version of "The Mirror Stage" featuring lutenist Josef van Wissem and guitarist Gary Lucas.

Plus, music from Joby Burgess/Powerplant along with a live performance of "Das Model" by Theo Bleckmann.  From string quartet to accordions, it's an hour of inventive takes on the pioneering band's German pop.
