A recent 2010 creative meeting of two long-time friends - Conrad Schnitzler and Wolfgang Seidel - in the abandoned cellar of the Tempelhof airport in Berlin for a memorable recording in an unlikely subterranean setting.

Review by David Keenan - Volcanic Tongue

Another excellent cassette on the great Mirror Tapes, Consequenz 010B documents a meeting between Conrad Schnitzler – still the greatest exponent of austere Industrial synth and electronics – and long-term collaborator Wolfgang Seidel. Recorded in an abandoned subterranean bunker beneath the Tempelhof Airport in Berlin, the atmosphere is suitably macabre and claustrophobic, with Schnitzler generating some of his most psychedelic creations, ranging from wobbly purple architectures of electronics through ominous blocks of silence torn apart by invasions of odd keyboard melodies and sudden bursts of noise. The feel is highly ritualistic, almost like a séance, and there’s a weight to the music that is lacking in some of Schnitzler’s later work, a seriousness and a weight of execution that makes this one of his best contemporary recordings.
