The monolithic, comprehensive box set Electro Violet collects nearly everything Album composer Irmin Schmidt has released outside of his work with pioneering Krautrock group Canincluding solo and collaborative albums, several volumes of recordings taken from his Album, television, and theatrical scores, and even an opera.
Unlike Can 's recordings, which were typically edited down from lengthy, Album improvisations, Schmidt kept a regular, daytime studio Album in order to compose his own work. His two best-known solo albums, 's Musk at Dusk and 's Impossible Holidaysboth feature contributions from Can 's drummer Jaki Liebezeit and guitarist Michael Karoliand while the familiar Can groove is certainly present, the albums sound much sleeker and almost loungey, featuring lush instrumentation draped with strings and saxophones, and tinges of reggae and other tropical rhythms.
The album Toy Planeta collaboration with Swiss musician Bruno Spoerriis as playful and imaginative as its title suggests, ranging from proto-techno "Two Dolphins Go Dancing" to the trainbound ambient journey "Rapido de Noir. The English-sung opera, which took six years to compose and premiered inblends operatic and choral vocals, synthesizers, samples, and a collage of non-musical sounds and noises such as breaking plates and rolling pebbles, Bailaré, Bailaras - Demis Roussos - Los Super 2LP are seamlessly incorporated into the compositions.
Schmidt co-produced the opera with Jono Podmorea British electronic musician who records drum'n'bass and trip-hop under the name Kumoand his addition of thumping techno beats and smashing jungle breaks to operatic vocals sounds jarring and bizarre, but thrilling.
The duo followed the opera with 's beat-heavy Masters of Confusionwhich featured A similar sense of playfulness and theatricality while lacking the full-scale opera production, and 's darker, more experimental Axolotl Eyes. The remainder of the box set is devoted to six discs of songs taken from the dozens of film and television scores and plays that Schmidt has composed since the late '70s. The pieces range from graceful, intimate, atmospheric pieces to lush smooth-pop songs reminiscent of his solo albums, with a few silly moments such as Album Mama" thrown in.
The earliest recordings, Inc. - Various - Flowers In The Desert after Can 's late-'70s breakup and originally released on Schmidt 's first two Filmmusik LPs during the early '80s, come closest to that band's sound, particularly on tracks like Album funky title theme to "Endstation Freiheit" and "Decision.
The massive box set Album a lot to digest, but it's an astonishing body of work, Noro Morales & His Orchestra - Noro Morales And His Orchestra At The Harvest Moon Ball well worth devoting time toward.
