From RNZ Music, 2:00 pm on 13 August 2011

Conrad Schnitzler was an early member of ambient electronic group Tangerine Dream, and a founder of Industrial Krautrock band Kluster, and a prolific solo artist. This largely unsung hero and innovator in German electronic and experimental music died 4 August 2011. Music 101 invited Geoff Stahl - Victoria University lecturer in Media Studies specialising in popular music and technology - to give us an overview of Conrad Schnitzler's career.
