CON-STRUCT
CONRAD SCHNITZLER / PYROLATOR



The German pioneer of electronic music Conrad Schnitzler (1937–2011) amassed a vast archive of sounds for use in combination with each other in live performances. In 2011 the idea came up of con-structing new compositions, not remixes, from this material. The Con-Struct series was born. Our release features con-structions by Pyrolator, co-founder of the legendary German label Ata Tak, solo artist and member of various seminal post-punk bands such as D.A.F. and Der Plan. "My prime objective was to present a side of Conrad which I had always heard in his music but one which often goes unnoticed: a darker, technoid side. Conrad has always been one of the great pioneers of classic Berlin techno music", says Pyrolator. Convince yourself!
