Seattle may have many flaws, but any city that hosts a tribute to the late German electronic-music pioneer Conrad Schnitzler is all right with me. Schnitzler figured prominently in the early versions of Tangerine Dream and Cluster (aka Kluster), therefore playing a role in shaping the kosmische aesthetic that fueled so much of the best German musik of the '70s. Con's iconoclastic approach to synthesizers resulted in pieces that foreshadowed ambient, industrial, IDM, synth pop, and techno. Honoring this legend tonight are local synth savants Raica (Chloe Harris), Meridian Arc (Andrew Crawshaw), Pulling out the Light (Briana Jones), and Dosenoffner (Peter Keller and Casey Jones), all of whom are astute students of Schnitzler's school of infernal electronic disorientation. (Harris's label Further even issued the great man's Live '72 LP.) Yes, Magma are playing in town tonight, too, but attending a Schnitzler homage might be the more progressive—and cheaper—move.
