Conrad Schnitzler & Wolfgang Seidel
Music is not language. Neither is it painting. Just music.
Conrad Schnitzler and Wolfgang Seidel had worked together since the early 1970s, when Seidel became a fellow musician in Schnitzler's free improvising group Eruption. Shortly before Schnitzler's death in 2011, he gave Seidel a hard drive containing his archive. One piece turned out to be a spoken-word recording, named “CONtext”, in which Schnitzler describes his musical philosophy – in a performative lecture with much humour. Around this kind of manifesto, Seidel, inspired by recordings of Eruption, arranged a spatial sound installation for eight boxes: “Music Is Not Language. Neither Is It Painting. Just Music.” will be heard for the first time in the envisaged 8-channel installation for “Bildet Nischen!”. Edition Telemark label released a version mixed on two channels as an LP in spring 2021.
