Chris Cook, aka Same Actor lives in noisy London. He's been making electronic music of all kinds for many years since his electronic music degree and operates under the names Remote and Hot Roddy, playing sitar along with electronic jiggery pokery. In 2004, Cook also started to play gigs as Same Actor, using various stringed instruments building up soundscapes using no pre recorded or pre sequenced material, but playing with alternative tuning systems and unusual rhythms.
"Kraftspiel" is Chris's tribute to the famed German electro-pop band Kraftwerk, comprising his distinctive interpretations of four classic cuts. The original iconoclasm of the band is here emphasised by being reworked on an instrument usually associated with rigid classical forms.
