The Strange Tendrils of K. Leimer
The mid to late 70s was a staggeringly fertile period for early electronic music production in Europe. Some German and UK-based artists like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and Brian Eno, in particular, were at the forefront of this evolution. Meanwhile in Seattle, Kerry Leimer was so intrigued by the sonic sounds coming from Europe that he began creating his own extensive volume of work spanning genre, style and instrumentation. Most of his work was only known to a select few, until the New York-based imprint RVNG Intl. started digging into Leimer’s fascinating catalogue. Sonny Meijer takes you on a trip exploring the sounds and story behind this mysterious man.
