MONTGOMERY & CONRAD SCHNITZLER, GEN KEN - GenCon Duets
GenCon Duets is dedicated to a friendship etched in stone -- errr -- letter-pressed in paper. It is also an unusual musical collaboration between Gen Ken Montgomery and Conrad Schnitzler. A follow-up to their 1988 album CONGEN New Dramatic Electronic Music (Generations Unlimited), this is a different kind of electronic music. These recordings were made in 1996 with CONs contemplative 12 finger piano compositions and GENs everyday recordings. Besides a long pleasurable listen these recordings represent an examination of music, how we listen to it and what we hear, intended or not. The music of GenCon Duets is not a perfected formula or mathematical equation. It is the resonance of a moment, a series of moments that play out in time and space beyond the control of the artists and ultimately our control as listeners. - Geoff Dugan.\r\n"The audio CD is comprised of 7 untitled tracks: 58 minutes of music.
