Wolfgang Voigt's Kafkatrax Released On CD

Wolfgang Voigt's Kafkatrax project, a trio of limited edition 12" EPs released on his resurrected Profan label are being released on CD (all three 12"s are now sold out). The project is based around a Franz Kafka audiobook with all sounds sourced from the voice recording except a bass drum. The recited text is disassembled, processed and put back together, with vocals layered and shifted up and down five octaves. The series began in May with Kafkatrax 1. The CD version contains all eleven tracks from the three Kafkatrax 12" releases and will be released on CD on 10 October, later than the original July date given back in May.
