All compositions originally from 1971-1980
A1 - 1978. Swiss TV rejected these tracks for a new TV-show as being too modern! The melody lines are played with a Lyricon I (multitracked), ARP Odyssey and EMS Synthi 100
A2 - 1978. Another unused track from the same show. They wanted a very nervous rhythmic sound to enhance the tension - and then of course it was too rhythmic...
A3 - 1972. PR-Disc for an Iron-Foundry company EMS Synthi-100, tape loops with sounds from the factory.
A4 - Les Electroniciens - the original recording!(originally: Konzert für el. Fahrschalter, Hubhyrdraulik, el. Gitarre & Synthesizer
) 1971, a PR-disc for the company Lansing-Bagnall. The strange noises are the real sounds of the machine, realised with the Synthi-100, 2 two-track tape machines.
A5 - 1980. Documentary Film about an art exhibition in Zürich (dir, Ettore Cella, prod. André Amsler for Tope Film) realised with the Synthie 100 and prepared piano.
B1 - 1978. Experimental film by Swiss filmmaker Kurt Aeschbacher (one evening of a striptease dancer).
B2 - played by the band, overdubbed with saxophone, lyricon and synthis.
B3 - from the same film music: the music accompanies the trip from the home outside Zürich to the cabaret - a lot of traffic, noises and anticipation.
B4 - (originally: Konzert für SIG-Pressluftwerkzeuge
) 1971, one of my first electronic works for an art exhibition. I did this track in one long night session in our living room and drove my familly almost crazy with it. It was played then in a trade exhibition in Basle, until everybody complained about the noise...realised with 2 two-track Revox tape machines (one with a loop), 1 Nagra mono tape recorder, the VCS-3 and an early Japanese Keio drum machine.
B5 - 1972. Title music for a very successful Swiss TV-quiz, realised with the Synthi 100 and the rhythm section of the Radio Zürich Band.
