(Marginal Talent) Used CD $15.00

A 2003 song collection from Conrad Schnitzler’s archive, recorded between 1976 and 1978, with more at play here than two tape recorders, analog synthesizers and sequencers. Digital keyboards and computer-aided musical progressions are in evidence. “Structured like a symphony in various movements, utterly abstract atonal passages are followed by solid sequences of rhythm and harmony, as energetic as Cluster, yet equally evocative of 1980s electronic pop music. Schnitzler has pulled off the ultimate balancing trick between pop and so-called serious music.” Liner notes by Asmus Tietchens.
