From the liner nots (by ASMUS TIETCHENS):
Majestic drones and tricky melodies fly past the listener. Is this still the music of Schnitzler, the con-
ceptual artist? Yes, undoubtedly. His view or concept of art allowed him the freedom to experiment
in all directions, a stroke of luck for the listener. The silver album offers up a form of pop music
preempting nothing and unrelated to anything else. Far more, it represents Schnitzler’s unique and
inimitable blueprint for a music of the future, music which still astounds when we hear it today,
almost forty years later.
Conrad Schnitzler (1937–2011), composer and concept artist, is one of the most important repre-
sentatives of Germany’s electronic music avant-garde. A student of Joseph Beuys, he founded
Berlin’s legendary Zodiak Free Arts Lab, a subculture club, in 1967/68, was a member of
Tangerine Dream (together with Klaus Schulze and Edgar Froese) and Kluster (with Dieter
Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius) and also released countless solo albums.
