Hubert Bognermayr & Harald Zuschrader - Erdenklang Computerakustische Klangsinfonie (1982)

This record is part of the history of electronic and computer music. In 1982, it was avant-garde... In 2008, it is a vintage recording, although a part of its innovative concept and new aesthetics is still alive and challenges the listener...

Hubert Bognermayr and Harald Zuschrader's album provided the German record company Erdenklang with its artistic manifesto: exploring new directions in electronic music and deviating from the cosmic genre of the so-called "Berliner school".

The Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument offered new sampling and sequencing possibilities, a new level of sound quality, through its digital technologies,  and it was heavily used in this "Computerakustische Klangsinfonie". Mixing together concrete and natural noises, industrial sounds and samples of a large vocal chorus or of various acoustic instruments, Bognermayr and Zuschrader were exploring a new style of electronic music, experimental and popular, melodic and abstract  at the same times, avant-garde without being hermetic.
