Eruption (Various Artists)
Price: $34.79

Product Notes

Eruption is an outburst of creaking energies, unconventional ideas, arrhythmic thoughts, cacophonous images, and musical phantasms. Eruption is also the name of the second album by Kluster (1971), a band project of the musician and video artist Conrad Schnitzler, who died in 2011, together with his colleagues Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius (BB 112CD/LP). Eruption was also the name of a two-day festival that took place in July 2018 at the Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg. For two days, artists and musicians from different generations and working in various fields met here, who were in one way or the other inspired by the comprehensive oeuvre of Conrad Schnitzler, as well as by his free-spirited thoughts and actions. The result was a multi-faceted program of concerts, performances, sound, and video installations, which resulted in the release of these two special records on Pudel Produkte, the house-own label of the Golden Pudel Club. The single features a previously unreleased piece by Conrad Schnitzler and Ken Montgomery as well as a story told by Asmus Tietchens about his father and Schnitzler, who unwittingly crossed the Atlantic together on the steamboat Bornhofen in the late 1950s, one as an engineer, the other as a heater. The LP brings together the festival's invited artists, Schnitzler's contemporaries such as Ken Montgomery, Wolfgang Seidel, and Asmus Tietchens, as well as young artists who developed works especially for Eruption. Among them are Lena Willikens and Sarah Szczesny with fragments from their performance Phantom Con Ballett, the DJ Phuong-Dan who composed a musical collage from the poem "About Rhythmus" about rhythm studies by Schnitzler, a piece from the performance of Felix Kubin, who uses a light scanner and his modular synthesizer to convert graphic notation into sound, a theatrical sound piece by Carl & Sohn (also known as Les Trucs), and the producer and DJ RVDS, who interacted with the piece Tanz i'm Regen by Conrad Schnitzler. Also features Esmark, Tintin Patrone, Crystal Penalosa, and Jessica Broscheit & Mark Boombastik. Initiated and curated by Nika Son, a musician and artist based in Hamburg.
