Schnitzler, Conrad

Along with Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Conrad Schnitzler was a founder of the Zodiak Free Arts Club, the birthplace of the so-called "Berlin School" of electronic music, and perhaps krautrock in general. In 1969, with Edgar Froese and Klaus Schulze, he appeared on the debut Tangerine Dream album, Electronic Meditation. Next, with Roedelius and Dieter Moebius he performed as Kluster. However as typical throughout his career, Schnitzler's music at this time was primarily performance art in nature. It would not be until the later in the decade that he would approach a more (or less) "conventional" recording career. Schnitzler enjoyed a long career as an electronic music artist, but his work with Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream during the late 70s and early 80s is perhaps most seminal.
