Conny's Studio


Recording studio founded in 1974 by Conny Plank and his partner Christa Fast. Located in Wolperath, Neunkirchen-Seelscheid on the southern outskirts of Cologne, Germany. His first studio production was Kraftwerk - Autobahn. From the beginning Conny Plank produced and/or engineered many of the most important recordings by significant German progressive/experimental music acts like Kraftwerk, Neu! (all their recordings), Cluster, Ash Ra Tempel, to name a few. He favoured the modern "machinesound", but to balance also produced German - and Irish folk music.
After his death in 1987 his studio continued to be run by his widow Christa Fast and their son Stephan and was still well booked by record companies and publishers. Christa Fast's failing health forced them to offer its contents for sale in May 2006. She died in the same year. The studio was resolved and empty til 2008, then Michael and Tim Dierks of dirxmusic started to renovate the studio on agreement with Stephan Plank.
Following the sale of its contents, the studio was demolished in 2009.
