About Berlin school of electronic music

Krautrock (also called kosmische Musik, German: cosmic music) is a broad genre of experimental rock that developed in Germany in the late 1960s and early 1970s among bands who blended psychedelia with electronic music and the avant-garde, as well as other influences including funk, musique concrète, jazz, and minimalism. Artists largely distanced themselves from the traditional blues influences of Anglo-American rock music, instead embracing hypnotic rhythms, tape editing techniques, and early synthesizers. Prominent groups associated with the krautrock label included Neu!, Can, Faust, Kraftwerk, Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, Harmonia, Popol Vuh, and Amon Düül II.The term "krautrock" was coined by British music journalists in the early 1970s as a humorous umbrella label for the diverse German scene, though many so-labeled artists disliked the term. The movement was partly born out of the student movements of 1968, as German youth sought a unique countercultural identity and a form of music distinct from imported Western popular music and traditional German music. The period contributed to the development of ambient music and techno, as well as post-punk, post-rock and new-age music.
