Tony Conrad with Faust - Outside the Dream Syndicate (1973)


Album ten to efekt trzydniowej sesji muzyków grupy Faust z amerykańskim minimalistą Tonym Conradem, tworzącym wcześniej m.in. w eksperymentalnym zespole  La Monte Younga - Theatre of Eternal Music. Muzyka zawarta na tej płycie to ostry, minimalistyczny krautrock pochłaniający słuchacza bez reszty swoją transowością.

Outside the Dream Syndicate is a 1973 collaboration album by United States avant-garde filmmaker Tony Conrad and German krautrock group Faust. The album marks Conrad's first and only musical release for many years, and remains his best known musical work. It is considered a classic of minimalist and drone music.

The original LP contained two 26-minute pieces. The album was digitally remastered in 1993 and released on CD by Table of the Elements with an additional 20-minute previously unreleased bonus track.

In the mid-1960s Tony Conrad was a member of Theatre of Eternal Music (sometimes later known as The Dream Syndicate), a United States experimental and drone music group.



In New York City Conrad was approached by a filmmaker from Hamburg in Germany who said that he knew a producer in Hamburg who would be interested in Conrad's music. Conrad flew to Hamburg where he met Uwe Nettelbeck, Faust's producer. Nettelbeck took Conrad to an old schoolhouse where Faust had been recording, and invited him to make a record with the band, "outside" Conrad's group, the Dream Syndicate (and hence the title of the album).

In 1995, Conrad and Faust reunited to play a 50-minute live version of the piece "From the Side of Man and Womankind"; the concert was eventually released in 2005 as the album Outside the Dream Syndicate Alive. (wikipedia)
