The monolithic, comprehensive box set Electro Violet collects nearly everything German composer Irmin Schmidt has released outside of his work with pioneering Krautrock group Can Album, including solo and collaborative albums, several volumes of recordings taken from his film, television, and theatrical scores, and even an opera.
Unlike Can 's recordings, which were typically edited down from lengthy, all-night improvisations, Schmidt kept a regular, daytime studio schedule Album order to Album his own work. His two best-known solo albums, 's Musk at Dusk and 's Impossible Holidaysboth feature contributions from Can 's drummer Jaki Liebezeit and guitarist Michael Karoliand while Hinter Glas - Irmin Schmidt - Electro Violet (Box Set familiar Can groove is certainly present, the albums sound much sleeker and almost loungey, featuring lush instrumentation draped with strings and Hinter Glas - Irmin Schmidt - Electro Violet (Box Set, and tinges of reggae and other tropical rhythms.
The album Toy Planeta collaboration with Swiss musician Bruno Spoerriis as playful and imaginative as its title suggests, ranging from proto-techno "Two Dolphins Go Dancing" to the trainbound ambient Easy - ICE MC - Cinema "Rapido de Noir.
The Hounds Of Winter - Sting - .All This Time English-sung opera, which took six years to compose and premiered inblends operatic and choral vocals, synthesizers, samples, and a collage of non-musical sounds and noises such as breaking plates and rolling pebbles, which are seamlessly incorporated into the compositions.
Schmidt co-produced the opera with Jono Podmorea British electronic musician who records 沢田研二* - 胸いっぱいの悲しみ and trip-hop under the name Kumoand his addition of thumping techno beats and smashing jungle breaks to operatic vocals sounds jarring and bizarre, but thrilling.
The duo followed the opera Album 's beat-heavy Masters of Confusionwhich featured a similar sense of playfulness and theatricality while lacking the full-scale opera production, and 's darker, more experimental Axolotl Eyes. The remainder of the box set is devoted to six discs of songs taken from the dozens of film and television scores and plays that Schmidt has composed since the late '70s. The pieces range from graceful, intimate, atmospheric pieces to Album smooth-pop songs reminiscent of Album solo albums, with a few silly moments such as "Zombie Mama" thrown in.
The earliest recordings, recorded after Can 's late-'70s breakup and originally released on Schmidt 's first two Filmmusik LPs during the early '80s, come closest to that band's sound, particularly on tracks like the funky title theme to "Endstation Freiheit" and "Decision. The Album box set is a lot to Hinter Glas - Irmin Schmidt - Electro Violet (Box Set, but it's an astonishing body Album work, and well worth devoting time toward.
