Robert Schroeder - Cygnus A
Robert Schroeder's interests in electronics and engineering aided his musical development as he built his own equipment to experiment with synthesis and create new sounds. In 1970 he ceased playing music for a few years to concentrate on studying and engineering, later to go on to work for Atari and Seiko in 1984. In 1978 he became friends with Klaus Schulze who signed him up to his Innovative Communications label
Cygnus-A was performed as a multimedia event at ARS-Electronica 1982 in Linz and broadcast on Austrian and German television. The sound is cosmic, deep, mysterious.
Great spacemusic full of synthesizers and some avant garde moments.
