Conrad Schnitzler (born 1937) is a “German pioneer of cold, hard, electronic sound (…) widely credited as the godfather of European Industrial music.” (The Wire, issue 267, May 2006). He studied art under Joseph Buys, and became well known as a member of the bands Tangerine Dream (1969-70), Kluster (1969-71) and Eruption (1970-72). Schnitzler has since focused on solo works and collaborations with various artists, releasing much of the material on his private label. His early solo recordings include highlights Rot (1973), Blau (1974) and Con (1978) and in the 1980s he released industrial synthpop classics such as The Russians Are Coming and Auf Dem Schwarzen Kanal. Schnitzler’s music has influenced a variety of artists, including Norwegian black metal band Mayhem, who opened their 1987 debut record Deathcrush with his composition “Silvester Anfang”.
Bjørn Hatterud (born 1977) is a Norwegian writer and art critic, recording and performing music solo as Maskinanlegg, with Tore Honoré Bøe in Origami Skandinavia, and as a member of Norwegian Noise Orchestra and other projects.
My warmest thoughts goes to the population of Japan that are suffering these times. There are three crisis at the same time: the earthquake, the tsunami and now the threat of nuclear radiation. Already to much.
To all our friends, keep up the spirit!!!
