Conrad Schnitzler

„Manchmal artet es in Musik aus”





The publication Conrad Schnitzler—“Sometimes It Gets Out of Hand and Turns into Music”  brings together the two years of research into Conrad Schnitzler’s intermedia work in the 1970s and ‘80s, but it also considers his later activity as an artist, musician, and person. Thus, it seeks to be not just an exhibition catalogue but an independent overview of the life and work of this electronic music pioneer.
