Best of 2012: Conrad Schnitzler’s Endtime

Many of us avoid preparing for our own “endtime.” But Conrad Schnitzler, who passed away in 2011, made sure that his last work, “Endtime,” counted. The CD (out on M-Minimal) surveys his forty-plus years of electronic music making with a single 70-minute mix comprised of 36 selections. Those not familiar with Schnitzler’s important contributions to krautrock and experimental electronica are likely to be blown away. For fans it will be a bittersweet but rewarding valediction from a talented, imaginative, and musically adventurous spirit.
