Konrad Strumpfel & The Set - "Refrescoscopio" cassette
- Sound Clips
"Born in the first half of the 70's in Ergoldsbach, a small village in the Bavarian countryside,
Konrad Strumpfel attends the music laboratory of the local Gymnasium
and begins to familiarize with keyboards, synthesizers and electronic instruments.
He becomes a skilled composer and arranger, records several compositions in his bedroom
and sets aside the study of piano and violin. His first productions on tape
reach two young Czechoslovakian musicians, Herbert Lukùndra and Josif Afkak,
who contact him with great enthusiasm to seek his collaboration on a new project.
In 1988, the Iron Curtain divides Europe in two, therefore the collaboration
between Konrad and the two young Czechoslovaks is strewn with numerous difficulties.
The final tape, complete with voices and percussions recorded by Lukùndra and Afkak,
will not cross the border and will never reach Konrad's hands. After 32 years,
the lost and never released recordings of Konrad Strumpfel & The Set, see the
light thanks to Music a la Coque."
