In the last few weeks, we’ve featured a few videos from Ralph Baumgartl‘s vlog, featuring his discussions with the German synth group Thau.
In this video, Baumgartl talks with Thau (Bernd-Miachel Land and Frank Tischer) about why they play the music they do, their inspirations, and their take on what Berlin School synth music is.
Land & Tischer also do some in-studio improvisation, sharing their take on Berlin School.
For those unfamiliar with the genre, Berlin School is music in the tradition of the 70’s music by bands like Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream that explored the creative potential of synthesizers.
