3 stars Head Visions is the debut LP of german composer Bernd Kistenmacher. His music is in the direct conitinuation of 70's Berlin space electronic music. Each track features floating, serene, aquatic & epic ambiences based on vintage synthesizers. This first album is really achieved, reaching a high state of maturity, pre-figuring the release of a few little classics. The opening theme is a dreamy-like and melodic composition using extended synth chords, minimal spaced out patterns based on sequencers. This is very closed to Klaus Schulze's late 70's efforts, very calm and lienar, providing powerfully flowing electronic waves that create a charming trip throw the unknown. Quitting Time is a realy hallucinatory, vibrant electronic epic featuring eerie ambiences and moving, repetitive electronic rhythms & hypno loops. Once again it reveals real references to Schulze's majestic abstract soundscapes. La tendresse is my favourite track on this one, a cosmic-proto new agy piece, always bringing to the fore tranquill-spacious synth lines punctuated by conrete noises & effects. The album reissue features a live extract released in 1990 for programmed percussions and epically meditative synthscapes. A pleasant listening that can ravish every fan of 70's kosmische music.
