Limited edition of 400. After ten years of planning and intensive artists-convincing, a dream for many collectors of minimal synth music and has become reality. A vinyl box with early-'80s audio formerly released only on super-rare and highly collectable tapes and 7"s by two of the most radical minimal synth artists from South Germany, Rolf Schobert and Georg Alfred Wittner, with their projects Heute and Der Musikant (solo project of Schobert with name variations as Der Künftige Musikant, Der Lustige Musikant, Der Ewinge Musikant). Almost four hours of greatest minimal synth-based tunes (two LPs each by Heute and Der Musikant plus a bonus Heute 7") compiled by VOD from more than ten different early-'80s tape releases, all released and distributed on their own Bu/Bu Musikverbreitung label in the early-to-mid-'80s. The label and artists released their very own style of minimal "präzisionsmusik," music as unique as minimal synth only can sound, standing the test of time, managing the path between the past and the future. Emotionally loaded, rhythmic, straightforward tracks, with superbly schizophrenic, antagonistic, and neurotic lyrics.
