Horizon Music has just issued its latest CD, "Moon Mummy", with music by Conrad Schnitzler and artwork, including a PDF file that requires Adobe Acrobat 5.0 or higher to open, by Matt Howarth. Schnitzler is one of Germany's most prolific musicians of the past 40 years, both as a solo artist and in collaboration with other musicians such as Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Tangerine Dream and Jörg Thomasius. His catalog consists of over 200 releases, most of which could be loosely classified as "electronic", as they explore sonic depths that many other musicians never venture near.
Matt Howarth is a Philadelphia-based comic strip artist . Oftentimes, progressive and electronic musicians are featured in his work. He and Conrad Schnitzler have known each other for more than 20 years, and Schnitzler appears frequently in Howarth's comics. Recent strips have featured Dave Brock of Hawkwind, Manuel Göttsching and Ron Geesin. More information about Matt Howarth's work can be found at http://www.matthowarth.com .
The underlying concept behind "Moon Mummy" is "a cautionary comedy about the dangers of mixing science and commercialization". You can also find a sound sample of the piece "Mummy Dance" on the "samples" page of our Web site.
