Fascinating post. It seems like I have quite a few gaps in my Holger Hiller collection.

I had no idea that the Wir Bauen Eine Stadt release was on CD and the sound of the opera is very much a pre-cursor to the analog baroque sound as you say. (Did you like the Guten Morgen Hose tracks I sent you last year ?).

I think I had those Guten Morgen Hosen tracks before, but thanks for sending them, Richard!

The impression I get of that mini-opera is of a couple of friends goofing around. It's great to hear the liberty and silliness of it, but not a piece of music you want to return to again and again.

Glad you enjoyed the post!

Yes, I agree that it is a throwaway piece. I like the first 2 minutes of the first track but it does seem to run out of steam after that. Still, I always find his work intriguing and wish he would create some new material or collaborate with you !
