5 stars What really makes this work relevant besides its great abstract electronic music compositions, is also how well it holds with TIME. It has not aged, in fact in this "PE world' it never went away, just was born way ahead in 1978, the beginnings of the "Drum Box" era or the later called "80's". But those are just REFERNCES! It was born as "Con" then turned into "Ballet Statique" which is how it is more commonly named and known, in the quiet disrupted releases and re-releases, of Mr. Schnitzler discography. Focused compositions, which never lose their experimental nature, both in its aural and performance likes. Conrad Schnitzler never sounds pretentious, he holds this "electronic music passion" as a natural instinct as a tatoo. His music composition is progressive, not only for appearing in PA, but because he dares to explore, opposed to repeating, and goes beyond the easy nature of technology's "offerings" and juices those noises into means of modern artificial concrete electronic music, but never to the point of digression or pretention. With this work he travels into all kinds of places (the drum-boxes are only used when needed, which is an additional "bonus" in my book). Those places are so" futuristic", that nowadays will stand among any recent PE work. So this is not TD, Kraftwerk (old or new), Eno, Cluster, Neu, Harmonia or someone else. This masterwork stands by itself, in fact, timeless-like, like any perfect PA *****5 star work should be. Time just confirms its solid music "uniqueness". 5 stars, what else can I say.

3 stars There's been quite a dramatic change in Schnitzler's sound by the time this came around. It's all a bit more 'accessible' than previous releases. In fact this sounds very similar in parts to the opening track of 'Throbbing Gristle's' - 20 Jazz Funk Greats which was released one year later. E ... (read more)

5 stars This is truly one of the greatest electronic albums ever made and definitely the best place to start exploring the wonderful world of Conrad Schnitzler. Electric Garden is a masterpiece of atmospherics, reverberating drips in the canyons of your mind . Overloaded harmonisers and delays build to a ... (read more)
