Out now: 50. ES issue with limited single
Herr Karl on the cover of Electronic Sound Magazine's jubilee issue
Appearing on the cover of Electronic Sound's first issue has been great in 2013. Now Karl Bartos is back on the cover - or - that is to say - Herr Karl, his alter ego.
For its 50. issue Electronic Sound Magazine is publishing an edited version of the transcript of the interview with Karl that formed the basis of the original feature. In addition there is a very special vinyl release to mark the occasion, a seven-inch single featuring two Karl Bartos tracks. ‘Without A Trace Of Emotion’ featuring Herr Karl as protagonist and ‘Vox Humana’ which is famous for the lyric: "The human voice is the most expressive musical instruments of all". Both tracks are taken from the album "Off The Record".
The seven-inch, which is exclusive to Electronic Sound, comes in a gatefold sleeve with a folded poster. The poster shows the record cover artwork and also the full text of the Karl Bartos feature that appeared in the first issue of the magazine.
