Kosmischer Läufer

Good morning.

Today we’re listening to Kosmischer Läufer, a purported German composer and synthesist, though likely a pseudonym. Läufer’s four studio releases make up The Secret Cosmic Music of the East German Olympic Program 1972-1983. The records pay homage to krautrock with their SETI arpeggios and synth jam sessions. For athletes – their target listeners – most tracks offer a driving rhythm section. We’re playing the albums in our preferred order.
