Human Being Live At The Zodiak: Berlin 1968 Nepenthe CD In the late 1960s, the experimental art, theatre and performance space Zodiak was West Berlin’s answer to London’s ICA and New York’s Electric Circus. That it is not nearly as well remembered as those venues may be because, incredibly, no artefacts of Zodiak shows have survived until now. This recently discovered audience recording of the ensemble Human Being, made in 1968, not only gives a glimpse into what performances at the Zodiak sounded like, but also documents one of the earliest progenitors of Krautrock, a collective consisting, quite intentionally, of both musicians and non-musicians – future Cluster members Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Boris Schaak, as well as Christoph Sievernich, Elke Lixfeld and Norbert Eisbrenner. Roedelius, Schaak and Tangerine Dream co-founder Conrad Schnitzler were also among Zodiak’s founders.

Fans of Cluster hoping to find an earlier version of that group’s cool, minimalist proto-electronica here will be disappointed, or at least surprised – Human Being’s brief was to go just about anywhere but familiar rock, or even Progressive rock, territory. This 56 minute uninterrupted performance is chaotic, arhythmic and decidedly unmusical, with no chords or melodies to speak of, but plenty of quasi-ritualistic chanting, scraping, feedback and drones from instruments played the wrong way or processed to the point of unrecognisability. It doesn’t quite fall into either avant jazz or psychedelic freakout territory, but rather evokes the sharp-edged, churning Industrial landscapes of groups that would appear ten years later. This is anti-music, not only in its rejection of musicianship and traditional structures, but also in its implicitly ungroovy, death-of-civilisation grimness.

It’s hard to believe that these same people would be heading more aerodynamic, electronic outfits like Harmonia just a few years later. But so many important Krautrock figures were involved in this project in one way or another that, in retrospect, Human Being’s ground zero starting point was clearly a crucial step in the development of German electronic music as we know it.
