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.
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"
