Synthesist 2010 - Harald Grosskpf

   (0 reviews)

Harald Grosskopf, the enigmatic percussionist behind Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze, and Cosmic Jokers, provided the first ReRVNG reissue with Synthesist – first recorded over thirty years ago in Berlin.

Armed with only a MiniMoog and Revox reel-to-reel, Grosskopf set off for the West German countryside and isolated himself in a home studio for almost two months to record Synthesist. The temperamental analog synthesizer and sequencing technology created a long learning curve eventually resulting in a harmonious union of man and machine, and thus, Harald’s debut album.

Re-Synthesist, the companion compilation to Synthesist, is an assemblage of reinterpretations of Grosskopf’s work by a new vanguard of electronic and experimental artists including Oneohtrix Point Never, Blondes, Arp, Stellar Om Source, CFCF, James Ferraro, and many others.
Synthesist is avaiable on 12″ and digitally via the RVNG Intl. store
