3 stars Asmus Tietchens is one of the most underrated eletronic music pioneers in mid 60's. He starts his career making concrete music and experimenting with electronics until Peter Baumann (from Tangerine Dream) compromises with Asmus to produce an album.

Since that moment, Tietchens has released over 40 albums of irregular quality perhaps this one, "Formen Letzter Hausmusik", is a remarkable achievement into his career.

Noisy, experimental, almost avant garde. Reminds me some Peter Frohmader "Nekropolis" electronic imporvisations or an insomniac Klaus Shulze but a little less inspired perhaps there are some intentioned ambiguous and morbid atmospheres based on dark dense and minimalistic keyboards and synthesizers and fullfilled with almost annoying distorted metalic effects; in fact, more than be labeled as an "electronic" artist I dare tos ay that you'll heard on this album some of the most dark avant garde experiments of the mid 80's.

Perhaps it's a very uniform album which fluctuate between intentioned mysterious atnmospheres and very hard experimental effects there ar some highlights to mention such as "Hydrophonie 1", "Kammermusik 1" and "Studie Über B-A-C-H". Not one of the top electronic avant-garde pieces of all times but at least a very enjoyable experimental album.
