Profile
Konrad (Conrad) Schnitzler (1937 - 4th August 2011) was an institution in the German electronic music scene for thirty years. He studied with Joseph Beuys in the mid 60s, and in the late 60s joined the then fledgling German rock band Tangerine Dream. He added a bizarre, conceptual approach to Tangerine Dream that catapulted the band to legendary status, documented on the band's first album Electronic Meditation. Schnitzler left after that first album, forming with his friends Moebius and Roedelius the band Kluster. Kluster recorded and released three albums before Schnitzler again left, this time to pursue his own work under his own name. After the demise of Kluster, Schnitzler released hundreds of albums, cassettes, and CDs, both on his own, and on various labels around the world. Schnitzler passed away in 2011, victim of stomach cancer.
