Schaltkreis Wassermann is returning with a 2LP album including all their untapped 1980’s minimal synth and soundtrack productions from around the recording sessions of their debut album PSYCHOTRON.
The band captured the impressions from the LSD dimension, converted them into synthetic sounds and bring them to the listeners mind with music releases.
An unique form of art, expecially exciting if you are minding they were a part of the inner circle of a group around Albert Hofmann (the explorer and designer of the substance LSD which changed the world in 1960s).
Stella and PJ Wassermann met Albert Hofmann from time to time in their studio. They have done LSD research sessions and experimented with an ARP2600 synthesizer, an ARP Avatar, a Roland 100M modular synth, a Prophet V polyphonic synth and a Dr. Rhythm drum machine to find new and magic sounds and frequencies.
Some tracks made it on their debut album Psychotron, the rest is available now on their 2nd album „SKW“ which gets released for the first time in march 2016!
