Wolfgang Voigt Kafkatrax Project Announced

Wolfgang Voigt's next project will be Kafkatrax: a trio of 12" releases with a July CD release on his Profan imprint. The project is based around a Kafka audiobook, with all sounds bar the the bassdrum sourced from the recording, with the result described by Kompakt as creating a "psychotic-paranoid, 'kafkaesque' atmosphere".

The Kafkatrax artwork is hand painted, and the centre labels include Voigt's face superimposed onto Kafka's head and body. Only 199 numbered copies of each of the three 12" releases will be available exclusively via Kompakt.
