Anthony Rother "BOT FOR LIFE" Read my lines. I control you. My empire. My network. I am in the cloud above you. Pray my name. Say it loud. Electro religion I am moving with the crowd. Enter the club. Industrial space. The church of the Bots. The law of the bass. The 808 prayers on the 808 grids. Techno Bass for the Electro kids. Decoding my story the story of my life. About the dark times and how I survived. Cray is the name the name of the enemy. Trapped in darkness with all the evil entities. There's a spell a curse on them. A selffulfilling prophecy which never ends. Feel the power. The crown of the force. Techno Pop from the electro source.

Anthony Rother "CRAY" vocals performed by Helen Schilp Father, the puppet is trying to become my master. Is trying to throw a nuclear bomb on me to destroy me. Is trying to control the entire universe to trap me and the loving ones. Is trying to appear like a sky walker to the masses. This caveman plays the almighty in his graphic world. Not this world. Is trapped in the never ending darkness. Not my world. At this space time I am blessed to experience the truth and to have the capability to recognize reality. Like no one else. A master of illusions. Embedded in the reality of endless love. And this time I watch him and his dark hearts from far away and I enjoy and understand their sad theatre as we are all children of the universe.

about

It was the hot summer of 1983.
A blue sky over Germany, in the small town Friedberg near Frankfurt/Main.
School holidays.
I was 11 years old.
At noon I were laying on the green meadow beside our house in the Birken street and held a Casio VL-1 Synthesizer in my hands.
There was a smell of ripe wheat from the huge wheat field behind the house.
I remember it so clear when I first pressed the keys of this little white Casio and heard the wonderful synthetic sound of this calculator machine.
These melodies and sounds created strong feelings inside of me.
It started like a Big Bang.
From this moment on I knew that I wanted to become a musician.
I had discovered the passion.
I had explored a part of love.
I had found my meaning of life.
The music.
Everything was music.

38 years later.
Today it's Thursday the 16th of December 2021 at night and I am sitting in front of a high tech portable computer and writing these words to you my dear reader.
Today I am living and working as a musician in the city Offenbach in Germany.
And the reason why you are reading these words is my latest electro album "DEKATRON".
You can imagine that many things has happened since this summer in the year 1983.
DEKATRON is one result of everything that happened in my life.
DEKATRON is somehow like a Matryoshka doll.
Life is like a Matryoshka doll.
I hope you enjoy my new album.

Es war der heiße Sommer 1983.
Ein blauer Himmel über Deutschland, in der Kleinstadt Friedberg bei Frankfurt/Main.
Schulferien.
Ich war 11 Jahre alt.
Mittags lag ich auf der grünen Wiese neben unserem Haus in der Birkenstraße und hielt einen Casio VL-1 Synthesizer in den Händen.
Von dem riesigen Weizenfeld hinter dem Haus roch es nach reifem Weizen.
Ich erinnere mich noch deutlich daran, als ich zum ersten Mal die Tasten dieses kleinen weißen Casio drückte und den wunderbaren synthetischen Klang dieser Rechenmaschine hörte.
Diese Melodien und Klänge erzeugten starke Gefühle in mir.
Es begann wie ein Urknall.
Von diesem Moment an wusste ich, dass ich Musiker werden wollte.
Ich hatte die Leidenschaft entdeckt.
Ich hatte einen Teil der Liebe erforscht.
Ich hatte meinen Lebenssinn gefunden.
Die Musik.
Alles war Musik.

38 Jahre später.
Heute ist es Donnerstag, der 16. Dezember 2021 in der Nacht und ich sitze vor einem High-Tech-Computer und schreibe diese Worte an Dich, liebe Leserin, lieber Leser.
Heute lebe und arbeite ich als Musiker in der Stadt Offenbach in Deutschland.
Und der Grund, warum ihr diese Worte lest, ist mein neuestes Electro-Album "DEKATRON".
Du kannst Dir sicher vorstellen, dass seit diesem Sommer im Jahr 1983 viel passiert ist.
DEKATRON ist ein Ergebnis von allem, was in meinem Leben passiert ist.
DEKATRON ist irgendwie wie eine Matroschka-Puppe.
Das Leben ist wie eine Matroschka-Puppe.
Ich hoffe euch gefällt mein neues Album.
