Overview Kunstrock

The third generation of rock consisted of slightly different types of people than the previous two. Roxy Music, Kraftwerk and David Bowie considered rock music to be a visual art form as much as musical craftsmanship.

By finding a position that looks both back and forth at the same time, they created pop music that still seems completely new and bold, over 40 years later.
Art Rock is a music book with slightly larger perspectives, which touches art history, politics and the biographical.

Reviews Kunstrock

«Kunstrock»: På hjemmebane 13.11.2017

«[…] overbevisende kunnskapsrikt, tidvis analytisk og ofte levende, om tre av de største artistene verden har hørt. Summen er en nostalgisk ferd gjennom musikk som noen av oss har hørt fryktelig mye på.»Robert Hoftun Gjestad, Aftenposten
