[Jul 27] In Memoriam Conrad Schnitzler

“Gen” Ken Montgomery will conduct multi-channel works by Berlin composer CONrad Schnitzler (1937-2011). Schnitzler, a pioneer of electronic music, worked with the spacial distribution of sounds beginning in the early 70s. After recording as a founding member of the groups Tangerine Dream and Kluster, his prolific solo output of single track music works became well known, but Schnitzler’s multi-channel works are rarely heard or performed.

“Gen” Ken Montgomery will conduct multi-channel works by Berlin composer CONrad Schnitzler (1937-2011). Schnitzler, a pioneer of electronic music, worked with the spacial distribution of sounds beginning in the early 70s. After recording as a founding member of the groups Tangerine Dream and Kluster, his prolific solo output of single track music works became well known, but Schnitzler’s multi-channel works are rarely heard or performed. Harvestworks presents this unique opportunity to hear Schnitzler’s compositions the way he intended them to be heard. The audience will be surrounded by 8 speakers, immersed in the physicality of CON’s sounds, adding new depths to their appreciation of this German elecronic music scene pioneer.

On Friday July 27 from 4-7 pm only, Gen Ken Montgomery will conduct a live Cassette CONcert.  Cassette CONcerts are boxed sets of cassettes that Schnitzler composed with the intent that others could perform and listen to his CONcerts without him present. The octophonic installation will continue on Saturday July 28 and Sunday July 29 from 4-7 pm, playing multi-channel works composed by Schnitzler between 1975 and 2008.
