Cheers Karl!

I moved your post here, because it will get more attention in the iPhone section I think. My apologies for not posting about this app sooner. Your attention to the humanitarian crisis in Japan by getting people to donate after downloading this app deserves maximum respect! thumleft salut (lets hope Ralf does the same eh? Wink )

Hello V-un-V!

Thanks! Obviously I should have looked at the forum-index a little bit better, you're right: The iPhone section is the obvious place to put this. Smile

PS:

I'm not Karl himself, but Michael - a relative new addition to Karl's "Audiovision" Team.

Right now Karl is in the Studio once more to make new music (I'm looking forward to that ^^) and of course plans to tour with the new material once it's out as well and we (that is Bettina Michaels and me) try to get the newsletter and some other information channels up and running. Smile

Sharing news over forums like electro-music.com was my idea and this is, so to say, the second "test run" we try right now. It's not going to be "fire and forget spam", I will actually stick around and reply to comments and answer questions and things like that. ^^

Also I'm a bit of a hobby musician myself (inspired wayyyyy back in the 80s by Man Machine and Computerworld to try and make my own tunes on the C64 and then moving on to proper synths), if someone's interested almost all of my works can be found at http://brielmusik.de ^^ - so I actually know what synthesizers are. Wink

I agree. Smile Actually I am a *little* surprised that there isn't a new mix of "Radioactivity" with a donation button under it on kraftwerk.com already... (or something similar).

Come on, Ralf: "Chernobyl, Harrisburg, Sellafield, Fukushima"! It's not rocket science (unlike running an actual nuclear powerplant)! Wink

Hi Michael.

Kraftwerk were the first 'official' band I saw live, way back in 1975 on their Autobahn tour (yes I'm that old!).

Radioactivity was probably my favourite KW recording, but I'm sorry, I found the Mix version of the title track one of the worst things KW ever did- it was very hip then (I too opposed nuclear, but I never really questioned 'why'. Okay I still am 100% anti-nuclear warfare, and I still oppose the bomb, but considering that actually the track record of nuclear has been pretty darn reliable, I am now 100% pro-nuclear power, although I do think we should be exploring other safer alternatives like Thorium as opposed to uranium.

But what has really upset me about the terrible tragedy in Japan is not Fukushima, but the fact that 30,000 people have lost their lives as a result of a natural catastrophe, and what makes me really really sick is the west's continuing fascination over a 50 year old power station rather than the thousands of innocent men women and children who have been taken from us so early. Just think of all those brilliant minds, lost forever. It's terrible.

If I donate to Karl's cause I would want all money to be donated to the rebuilding of houses, schools and hospitals rather than further scaremongering over the effects of low level radiation, where as yet not one single person has died from, and is highly unlikely ever will.

I fully agree - I don't know how it was in OTHER countries, but here in Germany nuclear power is a heavy topic and it's been campaigning time, so many politicians and media seemed to be concentrating on the powerplant because of that - quite tasteless, if you ask me.
