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 "Historical Auricle" 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.

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.
