Und Manchmal Artet es aus

.. in Musik! also “Manchmal artet es in Musik aus” ist der Titel der Langen Nacht über den Intermedia Künstler Conrad Schnitzler, der leider viel zu früh vor wenigen Jahren verstorben ist. Als Kunde von SchneidersLaden hat er sich gern immer wieder mal einen neuen Synth “gekauft”, den er bevorzugt nicht besonders gut zu verstehen gewillt war, um sich von dessen Klang und Geräuschebringenden Exzessen selbst immer wieder neu überraschen zu lassen während er diese aufnahm und zu immer wieder neuen Werken in seinem Kellerstudio kombinierte.
In seinem unglaublichen Nachlass gibt es somit Werke die ausschließlich mit z.B. einer Sherman Filterbank oder dem Cwejman S1 oder dem großen M5 von Macbeth (im Foto links: Dank an Max Joy) gemacht sind, die Instrumente sind seinerzeit immer wieder zu gunsten weiterer neuer Produkte zu uns zurück gekommen. Seine eigentlichen Werke allerdings waren wohl die Kassettekonzerte und sein Auftreten gegenüber dem konservativen Mainstream der (berliner) westdeutschen Nachkriegszeit z.B.in der Frankfurter Oper oder im Stechschritt auf dem Kuhdamm. Ich bin gespannt.

There is still so much more to come, please feed us with further informations, text updates and pictures, and .. better buy your tickets now.

What are we doing here?

Looking back to the work of Conrad Schnitzler from nowadays perspective you see that electronic music could have been more than just entertainment, are we still busy in that? Are you?
Please have a minute for an earlier client of us borrowing synths like the Cwejman S1 like Macbeths M5 or the still prominent Sherman filterbank to record the noises they did, never reading a manual nor understanding the range of technical possibilities. His biggest work for me was the fact that he never signed any kind of a contract during all his life. So he did not have a bank account nor rented a flat legally, .. in highest respect Conrad Schnitzler was something like a superpunk (?)!
Please see a tv report on him from tv history here. .. (..thanks Wolfgang)
