Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express + Selected Works :  LISTEN

Envelop is a non-profit that amplifies the power of music through immersive audio venues and open source spatial audio software.

We believe that immersive experiences of sound and music connect and inspire people on a deeper level, creating shared moments of fully-activated intentional listening. Through Envelop venues, powered by our software Envelop for Live, we host a diversity of events ranging from spatial music performances and listening events, to wellness and 3D audio education. With 32 or more speakers surrounding the audience, Envelop venues allow us to be within the music.

Envelop is directed by artist/musician Christopher Willits, with board members Roddy Lindsay, artist/DJ Mark Slee, fabricator Greg Wood, and creative director Alingo Loh.



Trans-Europe Express is often cited as the most influencial Kraftwerk album. At this LISTEN event we have upmixed the Live 5.1 suround sound version of this classic electronic music allowing you to be literally inside the sound. Trans-Europe Express offers the best blend of minimalism, mechanized rhythms, and crafted, catchy melodies in the group's catalog. The title cut was sampled within Afrika Bambaataa's enormously important dancefloor smash "Planet Rock", helping to inspire a new era of electronic music. 
This version of Trans-Europe Express is from 3-D The Catalogue, with other selected works from the same box set

LISTEN is a series of spatial audio compositions, like movies for your ears.
