Das Synthetische Mischgewebe - Audience Of The Souldestroyers

C20 on Das Cassettencombinat from 1982. This was again re-released as part of the Individual VOD vinyl series in 2005.

Currently, the hugely influential Das Synthetische Mischgewebe is Isabelle Chemin and Guido Hübner

"Guido Hübner founded Das Synthetische Mischgewebe (aka DSM) in the early 1980's in Berlin. With a loose ensemble of individuals of different disciplines DSM worked in many different forms of artistic expressions ranging from concerts and performances to mixed-media installations with topics in neurology and cognitive science. Works have been presented in most parts of Europe, New York, Montreal and Sao Paulo. However, DSM is mostly recognised for it's musical output, having released numerous cassettes, vinyl records and CD's on labels based in Europe, Japan and the United States. The descriptive keyword for the music is "montage" framed by fragment and collage. Mostly, but not exclusively, working with concrète and electronic sounds, the interest of the experimental approach is to explore elements where a given combination of sounds is perceived as associated, united, blended together to appear as a continuity and where disconnected, fragmented, divided components that evoke rupture and how both can be combined and shaped into a significant structure." Chronoglide

The DSM backcatalogue appears to be extremely partial, even on official sites...if anybody has been able to find a comprehensive record, please get in touch.
