Note: CD & download versions change the side running-order to stay under 80 minutes per disc, as follows:- disc 1: A/D, disc 2: B/C.

Conrad Schnitzler: composing.
Wolfgang Hertz: voicing.

Some of the finest from the early digital era of Conrad Schnitzler, even better than the LP of the time "Micon In Italia" this is a mixture of avant/melodic hybrids, pieces that sound a bit like The Residents in instrumental "Mole" mode or the quirkier end of Sky era Asmus Tietchens. In all, a great value release!
Wolfgang Hertz can also be heard solo on the Aussenminister/Model 81 CDR release, with the enigmatic but powerful "Return 9" dating from 1984, originally from the now deleted "Journey To The End Of Night" Auricle double cassette.
Note: Licence was for 200 copies, however only the first 100 were numbered (written in silver ink #/200 on the cassette case). Set comes in a large (137mm x 105mm) clear cassette case, with insert printed black on marlmarque (card first 120, paper later ones). A CDR version is also available via download.

Originally a 2xc90 cassette, Auricle AMC 028 - 200 copy edition - released 1988.
Bandcamp download - released 31/1/2012.
