Peter Hübner; Faust, Electronische Chöre, LichtfädenCreel Pone
CP 185 CD
Compendium of early German Electronic Music Composer Peter Hübner's first two self-issued releases - via his "Enjoy Records" imprint - covering a series of extended drone forms for Synthesizers & treated vocals composed & executed as his private "Studio für Elektronic Music Cologne / Kassel" between 1967 & 1970.
A Student of both Herbert Eimert & Bernd Alois Zimmerman, Hübner studied Electronic Music at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in the early 60s before, amongst other things, establishing a new notational system for Electronic Music that allowed for the merging of traditional staff-based forms with expressive concepts for Electronic performance.
While "Faust," part of a ballet program, did have a single public performance in California in 1968, the rest of the works represented here seem to have only existed in their recorded forms, issued in infinitesimally marginal quantities in the early 70s - the original LPs are both obscure - even to followers of this spec - and extremely hard to come by. Kudos once again to the Mr. P.C. C.P. brain-trust for unearthing such eerily prescient music.
