Conrad Schnitzler / Borngräber
LP / M=Minimal Records / 2011
After two re-releases of Conrad Schnitzler classics, (Zug & Ballet
Statique) now m=minimal releases a completely new work from the pioneer
of electronic music. Conrad Schnitzler is a sound explorer. For many
years, he has been on expeditions, journeys through his collection of
electronic synthesizers almost every day. Sounds he liked has been
conserved on tape and stored in his sound library. The result is a huge
library of audio files, he calls them "solen". "Borngräber &
Struever" have got the chance to examine that library and started to
con-struct new pieces out of the hidden gems. These are not remixes but
new compositions. None of the sound combinations were thought or heard
before. The 8 tracks form an album independent of any trend and
therefore it becomes a real acoustic environment for everyone. The album
was produced at Studio.Wannsee. To give the album more authenticity,
the complete audio processing was done using analog equipment. They not
only used many classics among the finest synthesizers and outboard
equipment, but also custom built tube gear. The icing on the cake are
the tubes used from the 60's, which bought Christian Borngräber on a
trip through the Atacama desert in a small radio repair business in the
city of Calama. Thanks to the desert climate even the packaging of the
tubes looked as new.
