Conrad Schnitzler: Film & Music
An evening of videos featuring Conrad Schnitzler (Tangerine Dream, Kluster, multi-channel audio pioneer, anti-establishment cultural iconoclast), some never seen before. Among these is a videotaped conversation with Gen Ken Montgomery in which the artist extrapolates on the piano compositions he called "The 88 Game". Recorded in 1993, this personal, unedited recorded in Schnitzler's Berlin studio shows his charismatic humour, wit, and wisdom. Also in this program: "Räume" by Jürgen Boettcher (1970), short films from Conrad’s archives and a video document from his legendary intermedia performance "Mittwochaktivate" at Mike Steiner Gallery, Berlin 1975, where Schnitzler paints his face in black and white.
This event is produced by the Clocktower as part of the 2012 mini-festival of events honoring the life and work of the musical and artistic pioneer who died in 2011 organized by Gen Ken Montgomery, a longtime friend and collaborator of Conrad Schnitzler. Other events take place at Anthology Film Archives, Audio Visual Arts (AVA) Gallery, and Harvestworks. For details on the event schedule visit con-mythology.com.
