HARALD GROSSKOPF - SYNTHESIST RELOADED
Produced by : ANDREAS KOLINSKI / MICHAEL WIRTZ
The British music magazine THE WIRE praised the vinyl re-release of his 1980 solo album SYNTHESIST as one of the world's most important rediscoveries of the year. In 2011 he promoted the album at the UNSOUND FESTIVAL in New York.
Grosskopf stands in a row with legendary German electronic Krautrock formations. In the early seventies he made a name for himself as drummer of the art-rock band WALLENSTEIN. During this time he also met TANGERINE DREAM, KLAUS SCHULZE and MANUEL GÖTTSCHING's ASH RA TEMPEL, later ASHRA. Grosskopf can be heard on some early Klaus Schulze albums. With Ashra he released thirteen albums and toured England, France and JAPAN.
He has released seven solo albums and played in NEW YORK, SAO PAULO, LONDON, PARIS and MOSKAU, and with SYNTHESIST RELOADED, the still unreleased latest live and album project, with ANDREAS KOLINSKI and MICHAEL WIRTZ three generations of musicians of analog music electronics are on stage.
