Conrad Schnitzler – ‘Con’
Conrad Schnitzler + Frank Bretschneider – ‘Con-Struct’

Review By Mark Hjorthoy

Although these two albums are 42 years apart, (Con: 1978 / Con-Struct: 2020), they wouldn’t be out of place played back to back. Hearing these wonderful experimental albums coming from an early member of Tangerine Dream, is like hearing Kraftwerk for the first time in 1977. Both albums push the boundaries of sound design and experimental composition in a way that could only come from Germany. Solid sonic adventures in every track that challenge the listener to re-evaluate their thoughts on electronic music, and get a glimpse of what life was like when synths were still something from sci-fi movies. Two brilliant collections that stand as relevant today as they were when they were conceived.
