With his founding memberships in both Kluster and Tangerine Dream, Conrad Schnitzler requires little in the way of introduction. Here, he's collaborating with one of his frequent sparring partners from this period of his work, former DDR resident Jorg Thomasius, whose excellent Tomato LP is featured elsewhere on MS. This one's a follow-up on from my recent post of their three way split CD together with Propellor Island's Lars Stroschen and is a very fine example of this era of Schnitzler's explorations. Together, these two construct unsettling environments in which arctic blasts, dense electronic wedges and concatenating links of tintinnabulating clatter float and writhe over beds of moody minor key synth themes over eighteen episodes of unresolved tension, explored as an end in itself.
