Haslinger, Paul

Haslinger was born in Linz, Upper Austria, Austria. After studying classical music in Vienna, Austria, Haslinger joined the German electronic music group, Tangerine Dream in 1986. During the following 5 years he recorded a total of 15 albums with the group, participated in 4 international tours and collaborated on a number of soundtracks, including Miracle Mile, Near Dark, and Shy People. The soundtrack album for the Miramar release Canyon Dreams, earned Haslinger his first Grammy nomination in 1991.

Haslinger decided to leave the group and move to Los Angeles in 1992. The Blue Room project, in collaboration with Peter Baumann, was recorded but never released on Private Music. Subsequently, Haslinger set up his own studio operation in West Hollywood, CA, named The Assembly Room, and released 3 solo albums, Future Primitive (1994), World Without Rules (1996), and Score (1999).

Coma Virus - Hidden

Artists: Coma Virus (Paul Haslinger)
P: 1996
This is music that some will find difficult to listen to. The soundscapes in the tracks will slowly lull you into a dream state and then like the nightmare where you find yourself falling into a deep pit suddenly shake you awake with a start.
Dark, brooding sounds hint at a presence just beyond the conscious mind (like the night creatures that wait for us to fall asleep?) characterize this album. And while Laudanum Vol. 1 (Fatagaga) and thepresentday (Jason Corder and Opium) are not antidotes they do mix well with Coma Virus and even potentiate its effects.
Coma Virus is a side project for former Tangerine Dream member Paul Haslinger. On "Hidden" he explores pure ambient territory, somewhat reminiscent of Lightwave. Mostly a construction of sounds as opposed to ambient offerings of, say Brian Eno. Melodies are barely hinted at here, as the focus is on the sonic aspects.

Lightwave - Caryotype

Artist: Lightwave
P: 2000
Electro-acoustic formation Lightwave's cd is a sound exploration of life's worlds, and a musical meditation on memory, as they put it themselves. This album, is one of, if not the most accomplished musical adventure of these musical explorers, who excel by the finesse of their perception and utilization of sound, but also by their sense of space, of silence, of atmosphere.
Helped by Austrian keyboard Paul Haslinger who has been based in L.A. for a number of years now, they have come up with a unique and beautiful musical achievement which is bound to become a classic of the genre.
Recorded at Studio NME, Montreuil, France.

Christoph Harbonnier - electronics
Paul Haslinger - electronics on track 1,2,9 and 10
Christian Wittman - electronics

Paul Haslinger - Crazy /Beautiful (Soundtrack)

Artists: Paul Haslinger & V.A.
P: 2001
Paul Haslinger can be heard on one track.
Boy from East L.A. meets girl from the "right" side of the tracks. Unfortunately, their relationship is threatened by mediocre music... er, societal pressures. For every worthy, evocative track that the Kirsten Dunst-starring Crazy/Beautiful's CD companion offers, two seem like recordings that a studio suit decided "the kids will relate to": Emiliana Torrini's Björk-lite "To Be Free," the Getaway People's Beck-lite "She Gave Me Love," and Osker's Blink-182-lite "Alright" might work in theaters, but here they just make the listener hope that the movie itself is better written than these leftovers. Save for the Dandy Warhols' "Sleep" (from 2000's masterful Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia) and maybe Fastball's "This Is Not My Life," the album hardly makes a good argument for the continuing validity of guitar rock--and was Seven Mary Three's "Wait" commissioned as a Goo Goo Dolls knockoff or a Bon Jovi homage? Latin hip-hop is better served, with excellent Mellow Man Ace and Delinquent Habits concoctions on board, but rock tunes by La Ley and Serralde are hardly as inspiring.

Paul Haslinger - Future Primitive

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 1994
This is the first solo release by Paul Haslinger after 4 years, when he left Tangerine Dream in 1990. Totally differernt music than expected. Very rhythmic, melodic ethno stuff. Sounds a little bit like Enigma meets Mark Shreeve.

Paul Haslinger - Infinity's Child

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 1999
The makers of Planetary Traveler return with another wordless voyage through computer-generated worlds. Infinity's Child, however, leaves behind the recognizable if digitally realized landscapes from that first effort; this time, the images border upon the abstract. A brief voice-over at the opening informs us that the Phleig explorers from Planetary Traveler have tracked down one of their spacecraft circling abandoned above a mysterious planet. For the next 40 minutes we hear nothing but an electronic score alternatively droning and bouncing along as images drift by, undergo some transformation, then fade away again. Translucent rocks lazily roll upon a crimson sea; a watery substance ripples with golden light; crystal spires rise up from oceans.These visions can be quite lovely (though some are uselessly busy and crammed with mathematically derived detail--a common problem with this sort of thing), and the film's plotless nature makes it easy to follow the drift of the animator's fancies. Infinity's Child can't match the fresh-eyed wonder of the "Stargate" sequence in 2001, but on its own terms it makes for pleasant viewing. DVD features include access to a demo version of the software used to make the film, for those interested in CGI technologies and techniques.

Paul Haslinger - Planetary Traveller (DVD)

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 1997
This is a lovely movie both in the computer-generated graphics and accompanying music, but suffers from a disjointed feeling. An accompanying "making of..." feature describes how the various planets were created by computer animators around the world who never met -- they just corresponded by email.
The result is just a series of gorgeous planetscapes with saucers and "probes" gliding over them, tied together (if at all) by a wispy story of aliens searching for a legendary gateway planet. One almost has the feeling that the story was forced upon a collection of already existing scenes.
The story itself is ponderous, new age philosophy and the gentleman that produced Planetary Traveller seems to have thought it an epoch making project.
With the music created by Paul Haslinger it is the perfct mixture. He blends symphonic with electronic means.

Here the last copy! Second hand, but very good condition!

Paul Haslinger - Score

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 1998
Paul Haslinger was a member of Tangerine Dream in the mid-1980s, but while that German synth band cranks along like an alien Edsel that doesn't realize its time has gone, Haslinger has been building a catalog of cutting-edge music that will take us into the next millennium. Following on the heels of his 1997 ethno-techno blowout, World Without Rules, Haslinger steps into a space-age bachelor pad for Score. Although Haslinger is a classically trained keyboardist, he doesn't let that get in the way of his sample-and-paste aesthetic. On "Accidental Measures of Cool" he mixes live performances from singer-songwriter Julianna Raye's moaning voice and Bumi Fian's muted trumpet with a snarling electronic groove and dub bass line to create a techno-noir landscape. Then he uses Indian chanting, not for the ethnicity of it all, but just for the pure sonic joy as the chant calls out across what sounds like a klezmer band on acid. Juliana Raye returns on "When Worlds Collide," coolly intoning her surreal lyric cut-ups in this electronic ballad. Taiko drummers, talking tabla players, snakey jazz rhythms, and electronic abstractions swirl in a giddy head dance on Score. "Fantastic Voyage" reaches almost symphonic dimensions, in a loungey sort of way. Only once does Haslinger succumb to ethno-kitsch, that's on "Magheda" with what sounds like a Native American chant sampled over an electronica groove à la Deep Forest. Paul Haslinger not only challenges his space-music origins, but ups the ante for electronica with music you might hear in a cyber-lounge someday around 2010.

Paul Haslinger - Underworld

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 2003
This soundtrack is magnificent but dark never the less. The music rises like mist and fills my ears with clouds of color and sound, murky, pulsating and totally electrifying. I haven't listened to it for some time and when this album came on my iPod at random it shocked my senses during my moon lit midnight walk home. The music send a kick through my insides and by the time I got home I felt like the Terminator because this music makes you walk like something out of a movie. In this soundtrack there's no subtle slithering in dark corridors, the music is eerie with an obvious feeling of approaching dread, you know that something big and bad is coming....Not every tracks it loud, some has whispers and monk's chanting, soft piano and violins ( "Eternity and a Day" for example), while others sound like an industrial revolution in the tombs occupied by the vampires. I totally loved it, highly recommended to fans of soundtracks and of fans this movie.

Paul Haslinger - Underworld / Rise of the Lycans

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 2009
Haslinger has really outdone himself with this one. Although it's short, noisy and to the point... it certainly gets the job done! Bits of classical, industrial, world, metal, ambient and even jazz pop up in this beautifully rendered score. Lucian and Sonja's love story is underscored by dark piano, tortured strings and brutal electronics. Similarly, Sonja's execution is scored to tragic perfection utilizing a heavier string sound than Haslinger has used in this series yet. The action music is up to par with the first two scores and is both intense and wonderfully textured.

Paul Haslinger - World Without Rules

Artists: Paul Haslinger
P: 1996
Very strong showing by this ex-Tangerine Dream member.
This release is glorious with peak guitar, strong rhythms and shiva sensibilities. A hard mixture of electronics and gamelan sound, with a guest appearance by Mark Isham on processed trumpet and flugelhorn. Some of this music is downright exhausting, taking it much further than normal contemporary instrumental music.
With the stream of tribal-techno/world-ambient releases hitting the market these days, programmers and consumers may be feeling a little jaded about this format, and despairing that the chances of hearing something fresh seem to be lessening. Paul Haslinger, an erstwhile Tangerine Dream member, shatters this perception by delivering original, cutting-edge, consistently exciting songs on World Without Rules.

Tangerine Dream - Shy People

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1987 / 1988

Original Motion Picture by Jill Clayburgh and Barbara Hershey
Music Composed, Performed and Engineered by Tangerine Dream (Froese/Franke/Haslinger) in 1987.
* Singer: Jacquie Virgil - Lyrics: Edgar Froese
** Singer: Diamond Ross - Lyrics: Haslinger, Franke
Shy People is a relatively long track. It starts off, very similar with the intro from Shine On You Crazy Diamond, from the Pink Floyd record Wish You Were Here.
Jacquie Virgil, the singer, begins with beautiful wordless vocal, but when she sings the lyrics, you get very disappointed, as she sneers the words out. Especially in the chorus, that has an interestingly quirky synth-melody, she sounds like a bad Tina Turner. If you can get beyond the singing, the track is acceptable. Joe's Place is a dark piece, and it sounds as if the Mellotron has had a revival. This flashback, makes this 70's inspired track pretty interesting. The Harbor, sung by Diamond Ross, is uptempo synthrock, with well performed synth and guitar interaction, that has the track to be credited for. The singer, undoubtedly paid for the occasion, really can't deliver the goods, as Haslinger and Franke simply has provided some poor lyrics. The rhythm of the song reminds of One of These Days - yet another reference to Pink Floyd. Nightfall is background music, and not very interesting on record. Together with Brother Or Stranger from 1986, Dancing On A White Moon is the closest Tangerine Dream comes to genuine pop music. The experience of writing pop songs is almost on an embryonic stage. In spite of the killer synth riff, the track lacks a great deal of enthusiasm, not only from Jacquie Virgil, but also Tangerine Dream. It can tempt you to think, that the film producers wanted a soundtrack with pop songs, and Tangerine Dream only did it to afford the newest synths on the market.

V/A - Night Passage Demixed

Artist: Paul Haslinger, Lustmord,
Thomas Köner u.a.

P: 1996
Treatments of raw wire footage from Alan Lamb's "Night Passage" session tapes (Dorobo 013). Demixed and edited with respect.
WARNING : Low frequencies in track 4 may damage some speakers. Headphones recommended.
As the liner notes state, these were demixed and edited with respect. While bearing the trademark styles of each artist, the "treatment" requires attentive listening to find the wire footage buried in each mix.
If you aren't familiar with Lamb's work, this is a good place to start as the more drone/minimalism of the artists' work makes the journey more familiar than the often jostling experience of listening to the recordings on Lamb's "Primal Image" or "Night Passage" releases.
Lamb's releases are essential, however, especially to provide context. There is a strange sense of beauty and wonder in them as attested to the fact that the artists here chose to rework them.

One remix is even made by Paul Haslinger.
