Sinthetik 1

by Seesselberg

  • Limited Edition 12" Vinyl LP

    The Wah Wah reissue corrects the original printing by offering it on silver board (like that of the first Silver Apples LP, or our recent reissue of Spacecraft - as it was originally conceived but not released probably due to budget limitations), features reproductions of original postcards to promote Seesselberg performance in kunst galleries and, of course, includes an insert with liner notes plus lots of previously unseen photographies by the duo at work. Limited to 500 copies worlwide.

These were brothers Wolf & Eckhart Seesselberg. They pioneered the modular synth experiments in 1970's Germany just as their peers Beaver & Krause, Tontos Expanding Head Band or The Silver Apples did in the USA. Their performances often took place in art galleries or Modern Art museums, where besides their sounds they also offered seminars to instruct the public into the art of synthesizer sounds. Wolf Seesselberg became an electronic music enthusiast through his work at the Hamburg Schauspielhaus and under the influence of Swedish composer Karl-Birger Blomdahl and his electronic tone generator. His brother Eckhart devoted all his passion into building his own synthesizer, a process that lasted over ten years! The good news is that they did record their performances, and a selection of those tapes recorded between 1971 and 1973 formed their 1973 LP "Synthetik 1", which sees its first vinyl reissue ever now on Wah Wah Records. Containing a way out sound, often ignoring the principles of standard rhythm and melody in favour of adventurous experimentation with the endless possibilities of the sythesizer, it's one of the most underrated kraut albums that nonetheless deserves to be up there with the early works of Cluster / Kluster or Conrad Schnitzler.
