LP£19.99 Buy Now In Stock. Dispatched today.


These entirely instrumental recordings were created in the late 1970s at Peter Baumann's Paragon Studio. tTis stellar period gave rise to his finest works: the Con, Consequenz and Con 3 albums, These recently discovered pieces take the aforementioned albums a stage further. Sounds complement each other as they are reprised, whilst continuing to exist in their own cosmos. As you listen, you feel as if you have been transported back into the studio itself while the sessions are happening. Schnitzler is electronica in its purest sense. He succeeds in rendering the unconscious audible. This goes far beyond "music to listen to", it is music which works on different levels, music to move you.
