This collection of unheard electronic experiments from an very unlikely source,and undoubtedly the greatest pharmacist that ever twiddled an ocillator for pleasure. Ursula Bogner was a pharmacist, wife and mother, was obsessed with electronic music -- an obsession that drove her to build her own studio for extensive recording and experimentation.
Over the course of 20 years, she dabbled in many different styles, leading to a huge wealth of work and a bewildering variety of titles, from filter modulations, tuba tweaking, bass anthems, looping experiments, synth-pulse symphonies, to rhythmic patterns trapped in echo chambers. In the late 1960s, Ursula Bogner started to record her own music on reel-to-reel tapes. It all sounds not unlike the output of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, totally unpretentious, and devoid of such mind corrupting poison as 'Ambition'. This wasn't intended to be heard by anyone but herself.So it has a rare kind of purity that electronic bigshots lack in toilet-loads.
Uncannily,Ursula had the dashing looks of a Young Dave Greenfield of The Stranglers(RIP), but being female, lacking Moustache.Something Dave himself also did without from about 1982 onwards.....eerily around the same time Ursula was making these unusual electronic compositions? Could they be the same person????
