Klaus Schulze - Dziekuje Poland Live '83

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1983 / 2006 / 2016
The handful of concerts in big cities in Poland marked the end of a very long concert tour during the first half of 1983. Many praising words were written and said about these gigs in huge halls in front of many thousands of enthusiastic Polish fans.
Both CDs include one bonus track. “Dzien dobry!” is, as the title suggests, also taken from a Polish concert recording. It’s from the town of Gdansk which happened to be the very last day of the long “Audentity” tour in 1983. It is a version of the classic Schulze track “Spielglocken”.
The other bonus is not a concert recording but it’s the same era, from the early eighties.

Klaus Schulze - Electronic Music Legend

Artist: Klaus Schulze written by Greg Allen
P: 2008
Klaus Schulze: Electronic Music Legend is a celebration of the magnificent, pioneering career of German electronic music legend Klaus Schulze. At the forefront of the development of music played on synthesizers, Schulze created a whole new style of music, beginning with his initial 1972 release, Irrlicht.
This book hails Schulze as the most important electronic musician ever and lays out the case for that lofty status. Klaus Schulze: Electronic Music Legend chronicles Schulze's career in great detail and contains full length reviews by Greg Allen of close to 80 CDs.
The book also contains stories, anecdotes and inside information on Schulze's career by his long time publisher Klaus D. Mueller (KDM).
New interviews and/or contributions are also present from an array of Klaus' collaborators and other prominent electronic musicians:
Harald Grosskopf, Arthur Brown, Michael Shrieve, Marian Gold, Robert Rich, Steve Roach, Dennis Rea (Earthstar), Kitaro, Joerg Schaaf, Thomas Kagermann, Julia Messenger, Klaus D. Mueller and Klaus Schulze. Pictures from Klaus Schulze's collection are also included.

Klaus Schulze - In Blue

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1995 / 2005

Nr.: 41
This set has almost 160 minutes of pure "Klaustrophobia." That means that these three long-form compositions are full of sequences, dense atmospheres, and drawn-out synth washes. Schulze invited Manuel Göttsching, his former Ash Ra Tempel partner, to play guitar on one of the compositions, "Return of the Tempel". Each of the compositions has several movements, each relating to blue -- the color or the mood.
Schulze is in rare form on this set. It has textures and timbres of minimalism. The sequences are gentle and subtle. It had been four years since Schulze had done a regular studio album and this -- after a Wahnfried disc, a classical CD, an opera, and a live release -- is refreshing.
He shows that he is just as adept at ambient as he is at the Berlin school.

Klaus Schulze - Interface

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P:
1985 / 1997
Originally released in 1985, Inter*Face is album no. 18 in the Klaus Schulze catalogue and is not one of his typical 80s recordings, coming across like a mixture between Irrlicht and Dune, mixing mystical orchestral soundscapes on solid rhythm ground, sans effects. The Revisited Records new deluxe edition includes the original and full length Colours In The Darkness that was edited for release on the vinyl edition and the bonus track Nichtarische Arie.
All tracks are composed and recorded in July and August 1985 by Klaus Schulze in Hambühren, Germany.
Klaus Schulze - keyboards, sequencers, percussion
Ulli Schober - Gongs, timpanies, congas
’Inter*Face’ was, in 1985, Klaus Schulze’s 18th album, which came out between the releases of ‘Audentity’ and ‘Dreams’. However, it cannot be seen as a typical Schulze album.
‘On the Edge’ is supported by pounding disco beats; peculiar sequencer dominate on ‘Colours in the Darkness’; ‘The Beat Planante’ comes across somewhat fragile with its synth sounds; and the final track, which is quite long, also holds little treasures.

Here the last copy of the original first version from Manikin!

Klaus Schulze - Irrlicht

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1972/ 2006
Nr.: 01

Irrlicht is the solo debut album from Klaus Schulze (originally released in 1972) and is an absolute masterpiece in cosmic, space music. Schulze omitted the use of synthetics for this recording, relying on organ with various electronic effects to produce an absolutely mesmerizing and minimalist body of sounds that transform the listener into a total abstracted world full of mysteries within its almost never-ending spiral. With no electronic pulse and rhythms, just a gloomy and distorted atmosphere this record can easily haunt and hypnotize. Considered by many to be his finest and purest body of work, the new and definitive Revisited Records version contains the 24 minute bonus track, Dungeon and comes packaged in a deluxe digipak with new liner notes and rare photos.

Klaus Schulze first attracted attention as a member of the German progressive rock band, Tangerine Dream. Following the release of their debut LP, Electronic Meditation, he departed for a solo career. Klaus' recorded work typically features extended pieces sometimes filling an entire album built around computer-generated synthesizers and other specially programmed electronic effects. Klaus Schulze remains a cult figure in the United States, where the bulk of his prolific output has until now been available only through the import bins. He is widely considered an avant-garde mainstay as well as a founding father of both the new-age space music and electronica genres.

Klaus Schulze - La Vie Electronique 1

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 2009 / 2019

Originally part of the Ultimate Edition.
What started as an experiment has increased to a giant sound cosmos over the years. On "La Vie Electronique" you have the chance to experience this progression with rare recordings that haven't been released on the regular albums.
"La Vie Electronique" was first published as a strictly limited 50 CD-Box and will be released now in chronological order in 3CD-sets including some material never released before.
This first set contains pieces recorded between 1969 and 1972 with very simple tools like the Teisco Organ - but with a big vision.

Klaus Schulze - La Vie Electronique 10

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 2011
LVE 10
The track "Unheilbar Deutsch" was recorded during a concert at a German radio station in Cologne, in January 1985. The second keyboard player is the studied musician and amicable friend Rainer Bloss, who worked, played, and drank with KS from 1982 to 1986. "Maxxi" is the only maxi single that KS ever did. It was recorded by KS in March 1985, on request from a record company, and "for the discos". Of course, soon afterwards it was deleted from the catalogue. As with many others, I didn't like this track when it first came out; but when I listened to it again while I thought about including it in the "Jubilee Edition" set 12 years later, I started to find it quite appealing. Sometimes music is like young wine, it has to ripen.
The tracks from "Walk the Edge" are soundtrack recordings for the American violent crime movie "Walking The Edge" (also known as "The Hard Way") by director Norbert Meisel. One of the film's producers was a friend of Klaus, Manfred Menz. KS recorded this soundtrack with the help of Rainer Bloss in May 1985.
"Havlandet" is again a soundtrack. It contains ten parts (let's call them "sketches") for the Norwegian movie "Havlandet". KS and Rainer Bloss recorded this soundtrack partly in a Stockholm (Sweden) studio in 1985. The film is by director (and script writer) Lasse Glomm; it's a drama in the northern snow-covered lands of coastal Norway: a young man is inspired by the northern lights, Aurora Borealis.
"Goodwill". This is one track from a handful of poppy experiments that Klaus did in 1991 as a kind of research exercise on popular music. Most of the results later led to the official Wahnfried album "Trancelation". Except this one. It sounds like an early version of "After Eleven" from "The Dome Event" album.
The three Spanish titles: These are encores from the concerts in Spain in October 1991. I include only the encores because the two long major titles that Klaus played at each of his five Spanish gigs were similar to the music he performed the previous month in London's "Royal Festival Hall" and which have already been released on two Virgin CDs. The Spanish encores were speciallyplanned for this tour. In one of his short announcements Klaus mentions the beautiful concert hall, and therefore I know that the first two encores are from Barcelona. The third track is perhaps from Santiago de Compostela. The recording technique was special: We recorded the music directly from the mixer and in addition with some microphones, to get the atmosphere of the hall and from the audience. Digo que: The Spaniards were a fantastic audience.
The interview on CD 2 was, by the way, made during our Spanish tour,.
The famous Bach title was played and recorded by Klaus in 1992, and remixed by him in 1993. Intended for the CD release "Midi Klassik" (called by the company: "Klaus Schulze Goes Classic"), but not used then because of lack of space.
There is another bonus track, "Weiter, weiter!" which is an encore from the concert in the German town of Aachen, from the tour in 1985.

DISC 1: The four parts of "Film Musik" contain the complete music for the soundtrack to the 1993 German tv documentary "Spurensicherung Baudenkmäler".
DISC 2: Klaus called the 71-minute piece "Narren des Schicksals" his first symphony.It was recorded in 1992/'93 for no special purpose.
DISC 3: Track 1, "Der Schönheit Spur", is the longer version of the music Klaus recorded 1993 as soundtrack for a film about Berlin's Potsdamer Platz, and the final track ("Return in Happy Plight") is the remixed version which was actually used for the film. "Ein schönes Autodafé" was meant but not used as ballet music for Klaus' opera "Totentag".

Klaus Schulze - La Vie Electronique 12

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 2012
LVE 12
Part 12 of the required series of rare tracks of the German electronics pioneer!!

DISC 1: "Picasso..."  is Klaus' longest composition so far. Originally it were various 1992-'93 recordings for a film soundtrack, but the film producer could not pay for it and accordingly Klaus withdrew his collaboration and his music. For the Silver Edition release I put the music in logical order. It continues on the Disc 2.
The denomination of "Picasso geht spazieren" was "Picture Music in Three Movements" due to the fact that twenty years earlier Klaus invented the term "Picture Music" for one of his earliest albums. This description and name did still fit in 1993 ...especially with the variety of sampling pictures you'll hear while dear old "Picasso Takes a Walk".

DISC 2: In 1995, '96, '97, '98, '99 and also in the year 2000 the more than two and a half hours long (!) "Picasso geht spazieren" was elected by the members of "The KS Circle" among the top ten of the most popular of the many KS titles, the highest position was number 3 in 1997.
Words from the booklet of the original release: In terms of time, the history of Electronic Music is essentially limited to the twentieth century -in terms of a successful work inside this genre just to a handful. In terms of struggle for the new and unknown to a few, if not to just one. Though Klaus Schulze may not have the trained piano playing craft that other players outside his genre have, he gives, I think, far more poignancy, tenderness, and feeling, yes I dare to say: Soul. The truth of an artist is as simple as that: He puts his soul into his work.

DISC 3: The original tape of "The Music Box" had the working title "Meditation I" first. Klaus recorded it in 1993 and gave it for free to the "Guttemplers", an institution that helps alcoholics. For the first release in Silver Edition I had given it the full title "The Music Box -Tongemälde in fis-moll" (Sound picture in F sharp minor). PS: Of course I had the famous movie in mind when I invented the title "The Music Box", yes I speak of Laurel and Hardy's only Oscar winning epos (the one with the piano up (and down) the many many steps). I did put some other Laurel and Hardy titles and references in Silver Edition. Not just KS believes that the two (and also W.C. Fields) were true geniuses, they put their souls into their work.

P: 2013
LVE 13
Part 13 of the required series of rare tracks of the German electronics pioneer!

Disc 1, “Machine de plaisir”: The original tape of had the working title "Meditation 2" and this long track was also recorded in 1993 for the "Guttemplers”, same as “The Music Box” in LVE 12. The feeling for time is so basic for Klaus' work. His beat is as alive as his breathing. His rhythm is both, continually attentive and exceptionally well integrated, as you can hear in large parts of this track. There is a feeling of unhurriedness in his work and yet there is intensity underneath and through it all.
Disc 2: “Arthur Stanley Jefferson” was recorded in February 1993 in KS' studio. Originally, it was the third free tape for the "Guttemplers”. “Himmel und Erde”, recorded by Klaus in January 1993, was first released on a Russian limited edition CD sampler in the same year, and seven years later I put it among the “Lone Tracks”, the last of the fifty CDs of The Ultimate Edition. Also from1993, “Vas Insigne Electionis” was especially done for a planned sampler, but not used then. One year later it was given for free to the Dutch KLEM organisation, who did a limited edition CD sampler for their members. Six years later I
also added it to the “Lone Tracks” of The Ultimate Edition. The very short track “Tag des offenen Denkmals” (Heritage Open Days) was done as tv trailer for a tv documentary on account of the European Heritage Days. Klaus recorded it on the 21st of July 1993. This small piece was first included in our Jubilee Edition set in 1997.
Disc 3: ”Borrowed Time” was played and recorded by Klaus in 1993 and completed and mixed in April 1994 at his studio. The reason for doing this long music was because of the work on the soundtrack for the American-Hungarian movie "Living on Borrowed Time”. Just a few minutes of the music were actually used in the film (as well as some special - shorter - cuts, released as “Angry Young Moog” in Jubilee Edition). Normally, Klaus is not a man for short tracks, so for “Borrowed Time” he started to play, and as so often, he got lost, forgetting completely about the movie and its need for short pieces. Luckily he had
not just played but also recorded the whole thing, and then he mixed and stored it... and three years after I could use it in Jubilee Edition.
“Today, technology is a permanent part of our folk music.” (Steve Reich, 1996)
In a magazine I have read: "The impact of movies is invariably linked to the progress of the prevailing cinematographic technology". This is quite true. It also applies similarly to music, particularly in the 20th century where musictechnological progress has been stronger than in the past. Previous to this, I can only think of the pianoforte and the saxophone as true "newcomers". The music of the 20th century has profited from a number of important technical innovations and most musicians of this era have gladly embraced every useful one. Needless to say, KS has always fought on the front lines for the acceptance of useful new musical ideas. Of course there will always be those stickinthemuds who live their lives in the past, finding fault with his striving, claiming that the music he produces is only good and new because it is supported by the latest hardware, or some such gossip.

Klaus Schulze - the master of electronic music - will release with "La Vie Electronique Vol. 15" recordings from the years 1997 to 2000. With this edition the series 'La Vie Electronique" comes to an end for the present.

On CD1 is the last of the 25 CDs in the Jubilee Edition set in 1997. Klaus recorded it during April 1997 in his studio. This long track is, as Klaus puts it: "...for playing along to. The listeners and fans can add their own melodies and sounds. Harmony is in C. They can play to it in c minor, g minor and f minor".
CD2: The first two tracks (L'opera aperta & La tolleranza) are the second part and the encore of Klaus' solo concert in Bologna, Italy, on the 15th of December 1998 at the "Teatro delle Celebrazioni". The third track was especially recorded by Klaus for the Ultimate Edition box in late October 1999.
CD3: These three tracks are a collaboration with an old friend, the cello player Wolfgang Tiepold. Most of the Schulze aficionados know (and love) Schulze's vintage albums with Wolfgang. He visited Klaus in his studio again in summer 1999, twenty years after the two did some good things in concerts and on some albums (mainly "X" on which Tiepold also conducted the small orchestra for the famous Ludwig track).
