LP version. The M=minimal label presents a completely new work from the pioneer of electronic music. Conrad Schnitzler is a sound explorer. For many years, he has been on expeditions, journeys through his collection of electronic synthesizers almost every day. Sounds he has liked have been conserved on tape and stored in his sound library. The result is a huge library of audio files -- he calls them "solen." M=minimal label-heads Borngräber & Strüver had the chance to examine that library and started to construct new pieces out of the hidden gems. These are not remixes, but new compositions and none of the sound combinations have been thought of or heard before. The 8 tracks form an album independent of any trend, and therefore it becomes a real acoustic environment for everyone. The album was produced at Studio.Wannsee. To give the album more authenticity, the complete audio processing was done using analog equipment. They not only used many classics among the finest synthesizers and outboard equipment, but also custom-built tube gear. The icing on the cake are the tubes used from the '60s, which bought Christian Borngräber on a trip through the Atacama desert in search of a small radio repair business in the city of Calama. Thanks to the desert climate, even the packaging of the tubes looked brand-new. Vinyl cut by Pole at ~scape Mastering, Berlin.
