Volume Two of Two. Double vinyl LP pressing of this 2010 collection concentrating on the groundbreaking and influential Experimental music scene that began to flourish in the '70s. The first recordings of groups such as Kluster (later Cluster) were extreme experiments with sound; un-music, anti-melody and anti-rhythm - attempts to destroy any musical links with the past. Holger Czukay and Irmin Schmidt of Can studied music under the radical avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and Conrad Schnitzler studied art under the conceptual artist Joseph Beuys. German rock groups were as interested in musique concrète and serial composition as they were in the Psychedelia of Pink Floyd or the Rock, Soul and Jazz music played by resident American forces. From this beginning, German Rock music began an evolutionary journey of experimentation. Electronic music became a pathway to notions of space and the cosmos.11 tracks including cuts from Cluster, Amon Duul II, Moebius, Tangerine Dream and many others. SoulJazz.
