Klaus Schulze - Androgyn

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
2002 / 2017
Re-Release of Klaus Schulze’s “Androgyn” (originally released 2002 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5CD Boxset “Contemporary Works II”).

The first track on “Androgyn” has again, like on “Another Green Mile”, the cello of Wolfgang Tiepold and some odd voice samples added to interesting synth sounds. The long second track has Klaus on electric guitar and for good reason it’s called “Back To The Future”: Klaus plays the guitar with a “Gleiteisen”, a piece of iron that he used in the “cosmic slide guitar technique” from old Ash Ra Temple times, 32 years ago. The next four tracks belong together. “There’s No Mystery” has a voice and the adequate and efficient cello again…and of course it has Klaus’ famous string accord in the back; you already heard it on “Another Green Mile” (MIG 01712) and can hear it again on further albums. As “Androgyn” comes to it’s end it gets more rythmic. For the final title “This House Full Of Shadows” I noticed at first listening: “Will be liked by the people”. We hear again Wolfgang Tiepold’s expert cello. (KDM, 2002)

“Androgyn” was originally released 2002 as part of the limited and long exhausted 5-CD-Boxset “Contemporary Works II”.

The bonustrack “A Tiny Violin” is from the 10thCD “Adds & Edits” of the limited wooden boxset “Contemporary Works I”.

Klaus Schulze - Angst

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1984/ 2005
Nr.: 17
Originally released in 1984 as the soundtrack for the Austrian judicial scandal documentary film, Angst (a.k.a. Schizophrenia), Schulze’s music acted as a storyline for the unedited film, rather than incidental music added to a completed story, thus allowing the score to drive the film. As stand alone music, Angst is typical of Schulze’s moody, serene and atmospheric symphonic synth bent. The bonus track, Silent Survivor, was recently uncovered in the search for masters and has been previously unreleased. The Angst soundtrack is released as a special edition digipak with enhanced booklet and new liner notes.

Klaus Schulze - Audentity

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1983/ 2005
Nr.: 15
The heavy rhythmic songs with weird noises are considered by some to be too clinical but, as a fan, you play these songs loud, really loud. The tracks on cd #1 are all more than 20 minutes long so they create a euphoric trance. The shorter numbers on cd #2 are more tranquil. The track order has been revised on this reissue to create room for a bonus track of almost 60 minutes. This is “Gem”, the original soundtrack of an Australian horror movie “Next Of Kin”, recorded in 1982. Because of the type of movie it’s from, the music is obviously dark and scary with a rhythm that reminds one of chopping axes and Jason masks, not very jolly and certainly not for weak stomachs (but very very good).
DeLuxe Edition incl. Bonus Track & enhanced booklet with new photos & liner notes

Recorded: Winter 1982/83, Hambühren, Germany
Engineered by Funky Ebby at the Klaus Schulze Studio.
Produced by Klaus Schulze.

Klaus Schulze - computer, keyboards and programming.
Rainer Bloss - sounds, glockenspiel.
Michael Shrieve - EEH computer, Simmons percussion.

Klaus Schulze - Ballett 1 + 2

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
2000 / 2017
Klaus Schulze - Electronics
Wolfgang Tiepold - Cello
‘Ballett 1’ was originally part of the out-of-print 10CD box ‘Contemporary Works’.
After ‘Vanity of Sounds’ and ‘The Crime of Suspense’, ‘Ballett 1’ is a further album that is available on its own.
’Ballett 1’ – the first of four albums in this series – was produced together with cellist Wolfgang Tiepold, who was also involved in the 78s work ‘X’ and ‘Dune’, ‘Trancefer’ and ‘Audentity’. Tiepold enjoyed much freedom for his solos, as for instance on ‘Agony’, on which his music is intensively wide-ranging.

Ballett 2 from Contemporary Works I was also re-released. It is identical to the original release, with no bonus material. For those unable to purchase the complete 10-CD set before, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore this daring work, showing Schulze at his adventurous best.
The moody
“Atmosp’ere Concr’ete” starts things off, slowly churning for a few minutes before launching into the 30-minute epic “Kagi’s “Agony” from Ballett 1. Classic smooLament”.Though not overly cheerful, it is not nearly so downcast as th synth pads meld with Wolfgang Tiepold’s wonderful cello playing, as Thomas Kagermann adds flute, violin, and non-intrusive vocals that serve as a third contributing instrument.
“Wolf’s Ponticelli” picks up the pace if not the melancholy mood as crisp percussive rhythms ensue, along with strong synth soloing throughout.
Breathy wood flutes add a nice twist to
“The Smile of Shadows” and bring the disc to a successful conclusion.

Ballett 4 was recorded in Hambühren, Germany in 2000

Klaus Schulze - Electronics
Wolfgang Tiepold - Cello
Thomas Kagermann - Flute, violin, voc
One of Klaus’ strongest discs from the 10-CD Contemporary Works I collection, Ballett 4, showcases some fine melancholy mellotron solos, beginning appropriately enough with “Mellowtrone.”
Lush synth pads and mellotron strings intertwine in perfect harmony. The music is intentionally kept simple; no other layers are added, the intensity stays low, and the subdued mood is maintained throughout.
Drums ‘n’ bass fade in as “Soft ‘n’ Groovy” begins. One would not normally associate cello with “groovy,” but then Schulze was never one for convention. Crisp percussion is added as this one moves leisurely evolves over the course of a half hour. Cool synths and occasional male vocals add a vaguely eastern feel to the music midway through.

Klaus Schulze - Beyond Recall

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1991
An expertly played and produced album, 'Beyond Recall' is full of variation and springs a few surprises in the form of the many animal and human sound-effects heard through-out.
The long first track is quite lively, with Schulze improvising around a basic two-chord figure constantly changing in key accompanied by some interesting percussion-patterns. At the end, the piece having run out of steam, its striking bird-sounds reach a crescendo of sorts.
The second piece, although featuring the potentially interesting combination of a soprano-voice, piano and flute, suffers in comparison because of its sluggish tempo and thinnish sound. That situation is redeemed however in the third piece, suggestively titled 'Brave Old Sequence', a great fast rhythmical piece which brings to mind the similarly good 'Fm Delight' from the earlier album 'En=Trance'.
'The Big Fall' establishes the atmosphere of a tropical rain-forest before settling into a drawn-out improvisation using a low trumpet-like sound and piano.
'Airlight' is structurally the most experimental piece as well as being both brooding and dramatic - it also reminds you of the rain-forest, sort of humid high noon time of day, not much activity around it seems until the exotic animals suddenly erupt into a cacophony of sound.
As he points out in the booklet, the delight Schulze had in making this fairly light-hearted album is clearly evident, and it shows that he is indeed beyond recall as regards going his own way.

Klaus Schulze - Big in Japan

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
2010
After having made one studio-album, and two Live-DVDs and albums with Lisa Gerrard, Klaus Schulze thought it was time to give the world back the “pure” Klaus Schulze again.
Having been invited by his big Japanese Fan, Mr. Gen Fujita, he and his crew flew to Tokyo to play his very first solo concerts since November 2003. The concerts in Tokyo in March 2010 were remarkable for many reasons.
First of all, the Japanese crew rebuilt Klaus‘ legendary and extraordinary equipment exactly the same way as you can see it at his European concerts. Considering the fact that this equipment includes a lot of rare instruments and devices, the Japanese crew did a great job. Secondly, the concert itself contained some surprises:
It was the first time that Klaus Schulze rebuilt and remodeled his classic “Crystal Lake”
(original released 1977 on the album “Mirage”), renamed here as: “The Crystal Returns”.
Also astonishing was the fact that Klaus played electric guitar on the track, “Sequencers Are Beautiful” - of course in his own, totally unconventional way.
In all, these were breathtaking concerts that combined Klaus tradition and vision: You will
love the sequencer-sounds as well as the new components. And of course, the DVD gives you the perfect vision of these intense and atmospheric performances.
“Big In Japan” had already been released in Japan as a box-set, limited to 500 copies.
This European version is slightly different:. The track “Sequencers Are Beautiful” (in the
Japan-Edition only available on DVD) can be found here as the second track on the first CD. Along with a new stylish package, these historic moments are now available for every Klaus Schulze fan!

Klaus Schulze - Blackdance

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1974/ 1991
Recorded in May 1974, Berlin, Germany
First Released in 1974, on Brain and Virgin
Klaus Schulze - synthesizer, organ, piano, percussion, 12-string acoustic guitar
Ernst Siemon - bass, voice on "Voices of Syn"

"Blackdance" was my first album to be released in England on Caroline, a Virgin label. Before that (Virgin boss) Richard Branson had signed Tangerine Dream, and then he also contacted me. Of course, I said yes right away. Not just because Branson liked music from Germany but also since Virgin was at the time, apart from Island Records, the prestigious English record company.
For Voices of Syn (the longest piece on Blackdance), I used the voice of Ernst Walter Siemon. He was an opera singer who had rehearsed at the studio in Berlin where we had recorded the first Tangerine Dream record Electronic Meditation (1970). I happened to be there and asked him whether he wanted to sing something for me and he did a little collage for me that consisted of Verdi and a few other composers. I recorded it on my Revox tape machine and used it for this intro a few years later. I played 12-string guitar on Blackdance myself, since I started with the acoustic guitar, before I played drums. At the time, I had been in New York and I bought a Martin 12-string at Manny's Music Store because it sounded so unbelievably wonderful. I thought I definitely had to use that sound in a song somewhere but after I had completed Blackdance
I found this thing with the guitar and congas and tablas not that great anymore. It sounded too much like folk to me. On the other hand many people have told me that it was actually this sound which drew their attention to my music. For instance, Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree told me this recently. He thinks Blackdance is a fantastic album. I can't quite exactly remember the details of the bonus tracks. I think they originated at the The Manor Studio, owned by Virgin, back in 1975 where I produced the Far East Family Band (with Masanori Takahashi, aka Kitaro) and it was possibly during a break when the guys were asleep. But I can't swear to it. There are an incredible amount of tapes which I have filled with music, which are temporarily stored until (Klaus Dieter) Muller digs them out again. When somebody asks me thirty years later, when, where and how I did one of these pieces, for me it's just like someone investigating a tax offence, "We have a receipt here from the petrol station. Where did you get petrol on August 7th 1997?" When even Muller doesn't know exactly when and where I did a piece of music, then no-one knows!"

Klaus Schulze - Body Love

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1977/ 2005
/ 2016
Originally released in 1977, Body Love is Schulze´s first soundtrack. The famous pornography director, Lasse Braun, asked him to compose an original soundtrack to his movie by the same name. Schulze had great success overseas, and in 1977 the album became # 2 in the USA Billboard import charts.
Like Moondawn, former Wallenstein drummer Harald Grosskopf joins Klaus (mellotron, mini moog, ARP Odyssey, ARP 2600, polymoog, "Big" moog etc.). Harald plays drums on Stardancer (13:38), part of P.T.O. (27:12), and generally does a good job of accompanying Klaus into the vacuum of outer space. His drums by the way are put down a bit in the overall mix and are not not obtrusive whatsoever - this is very much an "electronic" album.
With the bonus track of 22 minute lenght: Lasse Braun
