Irmin Schmidt is a founding member of Can, the German band whose unparalleled genius remains unquestioned, timeless and immeasurably influential. When all Can members decided to part and explore new sounds, Irmin teamed up with Swiss jazz and electronics musician Bruno Spoerri to make his first post-Can album, Toy Planet (1981), which opens the box set. The collection then travels through to his Gormenghast opera, solo albums, collaborations with Kumo (Jono Podmore) and Duncan Fallowell, plus his extensive and award winning film soundtrack works, including the unreleased Film Musik Anthology Vol. 6

The Electro Violet box comes with an 80-page booklet, featuring new sleevenotes from Max Dax and Irmin Schmidt. Each album is presented in an individual gatefold sleeve and the artwork, entitled Bärenkuss 5, is by longtime friend, the Berlin artist FRANEK – the original art measures at 142cmx122cm, for more information on the artist, go to:
