36 years ago the art student Thomas Fehlmann (The Orb, Palais Schaumburg) attended a guest lecture by one of Germany's most important experimental electronic musicians Conrad Schnitzler (Tangerine Dream, Kluster). Schnitzler demonstrated to the students how the "extended definition of art" established by Joseph Beuys could be applied to music. This proved to be a crucial element in Fehlmann's decision to become a musician. Now things come in full circle: Fehlmann compiled our fifth "Kollektion", arranging, in uniquely harmonious fashion, sixteen pieces from the early 1980s by the man who broadened his horizons. The gateway to Conrad Schnitzler's sonic cosmos has been flung wide open.
