5 stars Originally released in 1973, "Zug" is one of my favourite Schnitzler's obscurities. Less known than "Blau" or "Ballet Statique" but it strangely captures at its best the essence of spacious abstract soundscapes. The album is made for one long piece (superficially divided in two titles), surfing on ultimately trance like sounds taken from long, monotonous electronic drones and minimal obsessional clicks. A weird and wonderful effort, all in progression and intensity. We can hear similar transcendental psych drones in "tracer" (from the New Zealand Omit) or in some kraut/electronic weirdness. The music explores suffocating sounds that can be obtained by haunted analog synth textures and ultra hypnotic frequencies. A very creepy, extended drone manifesto. Supreme stuff!! An hymn to the repetition , micro events and dream time.
