There are not too many names that get us more excited here at AZ HQ than Conrad Schnitzler's. Since the mid-1960s, Schnitzler has been one of the undisputed masters of electronic experimentation, and his name is synonymous with Krautrock's innovation and defiant musical vision. A prolific solo artist, he also founded Kluster (later Cluster) with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, was an early collaborator with seminal Kosmische acts Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze, and, in 1967, founded the Zodiak Free Arts Lab in West Berlin, an experimental performance space designed for the exploration of musical and political freedom (where Tangerine and Klaus both played). So, for previously unreleased material from Conrad to become available is is an exciting affair indeed-- especially for those of us not lucky enough to have been in the crowds those nights in the '70s. Further Records have done just that, taking a previously unreleased 1972 performance from the vault and giving it a double LP pressing. As Conrad explains the origins of the performance:

"I was invited to be part of an art exhibition, Szene 72 (it means 1972). This was happening in Stuttgart, London and Hamburg. From the London performance there was some music that was recorded to tape, but all this old cheap tape-material does not run on a tape player anymore. This, what you have, this has survived."

This is a precious artefact of a man fully in control, and ahead of his game. --Daniel Gottlieb, Altered Zones
