I've been reading Julian Cope's magnificent Krautrocksampler book the last few days and as a result I've been checking out artists as I am reminded of them. Herr Schnitzler is one of the pivotal figures in the Krautrock movement having been in Kluster and Tangerine Dream, but mostly he was out on his own exerting a major influence over much of the creative music world.
Favorite track: DictaCon Side A.
a 60-minute audiowork by Conrad Schnitzler
originally released on microcassette format in January 2010
(with black and white photocopy artwork panels by Con, packaged inside a ziplock plastic bag)
this is and was a homemade product.
These tracks presented here are Conrad Schnitzler's original stereo mixes before I rendered them to microcassette format.
DictaCon was originally released in microcassette format, with two 30-minute tracks on each side of the original 60-minute microcassette release.
