Klaus Schulze - La Vie Electronique 8

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 2010
LVE 8

During the years 1977-1983 Klaus Schulze recorded some of his more introspective works. Albums like MIRAGE, DUNE, and DIG IT saw a significant change in his style of playing and his way of composing. While Schulze was quickly expanding his collection of synthesizers, that ultimately had its effect on the outlook of the music and the possibilities of performing that in a more exquisite way. Play a track like “Synthasy” and notice that Schulze has come a long way since TIMEWIND and MOONDAWN. On this 8th part of LA VIE ELECTRONIQUE there’s a selection of stuff that was archived beside his official albums in those years. A large part of this 3CD-set forms the appearance of concert recordings (made on a cheap, but stereo radio cassette recorder) from Klaus’ 1979 tour with singer Arthur Brown. Besides the recordings that made up three sides of his monumental “...LIVE...” album that was released in 1980, there were plenty of other versions available of the material that Schulze played during the fall of 1979.
The concert that the two did on October, 24th in the auditorium of the Technical University in Brussels captures the energy and passion of what the unique combination of Schulze-Brown was about. “Faster than Lightning”, that formed the second set that night, says it all. Before the intermission, Schulze is certainly in the mood during “Dans un jardin”, while crafting musical landscapes, playing soulful solos on his Minimoog, also on a pair of electronic bongos, and setting a more darker tone during the last two movements. There’s more of this beautiful gig elsewhere in this set.
The “Hitchcock Suite” must have been something of a buried treasure in KS’ archives for many years. A four-part composition, in which all the elements of Klaus’ 70s sound are to be found.
From the eerie sounding first two parts to the more sequenced orientated latter parts, it’s like a transitional piece altogether. There are moments that are reminiscent of material from BODY LOVE 2, MIRAGE, but also DUNE. Recorded around 1977/1978, you can actually hear that Klaus is looking for a new direction and is trying to head for the more experimental phase in his late 70s analogue years. For instance, the opening sounds of the “Tippi Hedren”
part originate from the Yamaha CS 80, a synthesizer that was a real revolution in the year that it was released, 1977.
I suspect that the “Hitchcock Suite” is one of the first pieces in which Klaus is using this mighty (and heavy!) instrument. From then on, the CS 80 was used by Klaus extensively on records as well as during concerts, mostly as solo instrument (for instance the hard attacks during “A Few Minutes After Trancefer” on the 1981 TRANCEFER album) or as a way to set the tone or the pace of a lengthy and enduring concert piece.
After forty minutes of studio glory, the second CD of this three-CD set features more concert recordings from the 1979 tour. Both “L’affaire Tournesol” and “Bona fide” are encores of concerts played respectively in Brussels (October, 24th) and Aalst (October, 26th). Both share the same type of sequence, but obviously bare their own signature.
In "L'affaire Tournesol", Klaus builds up the basic track step by step, making room for an almost choral sounding Minimoog solo, which doesn't sound as harsh as some of his solo playing during concert performances in the early eighties, but it does have the power and the climaxing notes to round it off and bringing the rhythmical piece to an extraordinary ending, using string sounds coming out of the Korg PS 3300. Klaus must have had a jolly good concert that night. On contrary, “Bona fide” is not as prolific and significant and gives the feeling that Klaus was probably a bit in a hurry that night. CD 2 is rounded off by a fragment of a radio interview that took place on November 26th, 1980, two days before Klaus’ gig with Tommy Betzler (percussion) and Manuel Göttsching (guitar) at ‘Voorst Nationaal’ in Brussels. In the program ‘Kaleidofoon’ he is asked by interviewer Paul Verkempinck about the usage of the GDS computer in his concerts. Actually, that particular gig was pretty radical for the ‘old style’ Schulze fan, when taking notice of the reactions in one of the first KLEM magazines that came out shortly after the gig. “Schulze just played plain rock music”, “Klaus is directionless and lacks inspiration”…., to name just a few. Interesting: in 1980, Klaus Schulze was just at the start of his long journey through the digital age. The DIG IT record was a child of its time and opened doors for more experimentation on synthesizers such as the CS 80, PPG Wave and Fairlight, all recorded in glorious digital sound….
In addition, Klaus got more into drum programming too, partly due to his work with percussionist Michael Shrieve, as heard on CD 3. “I Remember Rahsaan” and “A Quick One” are variations on
“Silent Running”, the mighty second side of his monumental TRANCEFER album that came out in 1981. Also worth of mention is the flute and sax playing of Steve Jolliffe, the guy that was part of Tangerine Dream’s line-up of 1978 and left the band after a fight on stage with TD’s mastermind Edgar Froese during the last concert together in London in March 1978. The ‘little things’ that Jolliffe did with Schulze (and of which a longer part was released on the Wahnfried “Miditation” album in 1986), are nice, but not of great mention. They lack a certain ‘click’ between Steve and Klaus. “Count Me In” features elements from “Spielglocken” and “Tango Saty”, which appeared on the AUDENTITY album (1983), including the Simmons drums and the EEH drum computer, played and programmed by Shrieve. “Zugabe Timbales” is actually the backing track of the encore that was performed by Klaus and his guest Manuel Göttsching on the fall 1981 tour throughout Europe.
“Keep Up with the Times” is reminiscent of the backing track that was used for the first main part of that same concert tour: a powerful endeavour and the ideal soundtrack for a long Autobahn drive. Finally, how far Schulze went during concerts can be heard on “The Martial Law”, where he gives it all on the Minimoog. What a contrast, compared to the elegant “L’affaire Tournesol” on CD 2. Just listen and be careful: this is angry, but melodic stuff in the typical Schulze eighties way!
The late seventies/early eighties’ work of Klaus Schulze is often overlooked and underrated by many. Hearing the material featured on this 3CD-set, one can discover the ‘other side’ of that particular period when analogue was still there, but digital was about to become the power to be.
And so on…

Klaus Schulze - Picture Music

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1975/ 2005
Nr.: 03

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. Reviews of Picture Music refer to its hypnotic quality, making bold statements that this is Schulze’s first true synth album. Originally released in January of 1975, Picture Music is seeing the light of day again thanks to Inside Out Music.

Bonustrack 33 minutes.

Klaus Schulze - Royal Festival Hall Vol.2

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1992
Klaus Schulze's Royal Festival Hall is a challenging two-volume CD set which is sold separately. This album marks a further evolution in Klaus' long and creative career. ...
These two CDs have a combination of live and studio tracks. However the live tracks are well-conceived. Each CD has one live track spanning approximately 45 minutes, with other, smaller tracks to fill each CD to about 70 minutes. It is impressing how multifaced the compositions are. ...these tracks are composed of many separate movements as one. Schulze uses sampling to effectively construct immense surreal, often cubist soundscapes. ...
The live tracks reflect a certain collage structure not found on previous live albums. Moreover they aren't as melodic as the live track on The Dresden Performance, but there is more to explore here. It's amazing to imagine these tracks live. You may find this music to be refreshingly more challenging and delightfully more complex. In either case, with nearly 140 minutes of music, there's a lot for everyone.

Klaus Schulze - Timewind

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1975 /
1988
Originally released in 1975, Timewind is one of the most revered and mesmerizing recordings in the extensive Klaus Schulze catalogue and certainly the best known globally. Says Mike DeGagne on The All-Music Guide: "Dedicated to Richard Wagner, Timewind is a 60-minute electronic expedition that is broken up into two half-hour tracks, Bayreuth Return and Wahnfried 1883. The first 30 minutes involves icy pulsations and lengthy tonal flights that unnoticeably converge into each other. While one rhythm gains momentum, the other one slowly fades into a bubbly electronic bath of bright swirls and meandering keyboard waves. Similar to early Tangerine Dream, the music here rises and falls above a distant sonic horizon, and the effect is truly mesmerizing. One specific flow can last for minutes, while small, detailed noises adhere themselves to the main electronic run. On the second track, more of the same far-off synthesized altering takes place, but the washes of keyboard become inoculated with a sharper, more precise sound. Longer notes build into resilient pieces with the same comforting result. This album will sketch a barren wasteland in the mind through the wispiness of the wind-like effects. Timewind serves as splendid mood music, and the ears are forever kept busy following Schulze's electronic wandering."

Klaus Schulze - X (2LP)

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1978 / 2009

"X" is one mighty and truly legendary studio album from September 1978. On these 6 tracks that were dedicated to Nietzsche, Trakl, Herbert, Bach, Kleist and Ludwig II, Klaus Schulze made clear that he was the master of synthesizer music, after one German magazine counted Schulze second to Michael Rother, in the list of the most popular German musicians.

The line-up for the "X" album was : Klaus Schulze (Big Moog, PPG Synthesizer and Sequencer, Mini Moogs, ARP Odyssey, Korg Poly Synthi, Poly Moog, EMS Synthi A, Mellotron, Tom Toms on "Friedemann Bach", Tom Toms and a cymbal on "Heinrich Von Kleist"), Harald Grosskopf (drums), Wolfgang Tiepold (Cello on "Heinrich Von Kleist") and B. Dragic (solo violin on "Friedemann Bach").

Klaus Schulze's Wahnfried - Trance Appeal

Artist: Klaus Schulze
P: 1996/ 2007
Produced & mixed by Klaus Schulze.
Composed, played & arranged by Richard Wahnfried & Jörg Schaaf.

KDM describes it: “Marooned” (13:12) is a track which I received from Klaus a few years after "Trance Appeal". It was part of twelve CD-Rs full of studio recordings by Klaus (and guests), planned for another set release that later became the five (or six) CD set “Contemporary Works 2".
The present bonus track is a little part from the fifty percent of then unreleased music. On both sessions (the orginal TRANCE APPEAL as well as on the bonus) Klaus is joined by Joerg Schaaf, and both sessions were indeed designated for Klaus’ “Wahnfried” project and albums.

Krom - It all makes Sense now

Artist: Krom
P: 2003
Mikrolux MKX08CD

It is simply unbelievable, which kind of potential in regard of electronic music has been hiding in the Northern latitudes and has only started to really happen in the past couple of years. Mikrolux today proudly presents another promising project from the Northern Hemisphere: Króm. The creators of this interesting sounding name are the two highly talented producers Andrew Lord und Úlfar Thordarson. With „It All Makes Sense Now“, our debuting duo has delivered a more than convicing release for Mikrolux. Inbetween of the introductive „Nebula“ and the smooth „Shimmer“ outro, Lord/Thordarson have embedded twelve beautiful poetic pieces of electronic music which manage to deeply touch almost every person listening immediately. Wether it is the long-lasting darkness during the ecplise of the sun or just the Northern nature, who knows – but the way our Scandinavian artists are combining the most fragile fairy-kind of melodies with extremely grooving rhythms is impressing us every time a new.
