Tate Modern, Bankside Wednesday February 13 2013 21:00
The minimal man machines scoot over from New York, fresh from their eight night stint at MOMA and well-rehearsed to repeat the whole process in the turbine hall –appropriate enough given that their name means 'power station' in German, but not the most forgiving of acoustic spaces for an electronic act not known to love booming reverbs. They'll be playing eight of their albums in chronological sequence during their stay, from 1974's 'Autobahn' through to 2003's 'Tour de France', joined by 3D projections (we're not sure how that works) and improvisational passages; perhaps, in their advanced years, they're finally getting around to humanizing their music.
