Klaus Schulze biography
KLAUS SCHULZE, one of the most illustrious exponents of the kraut-electronic musical current, was born on the 4th of August 1947, right in Berlin, the heart of the entire action. Before getting to know him as a master of electronic music, Schulze proved to be a skillful and talented young musician (with studies in modern composition at the Berlin University), hard to recognize (nowadays, perhaps) in the underground scene of the 60s. He first of all learned to play the guitar, starring afterwards in several bands as a bassist or a percussionist. His evolution in these ensembles can't be considered essential, still shows the consistency of moving up ahead: from the Düsseldorfian dance group Les Barones and cover-bands frenzied about Rolling Stones to the rock group Psy Free and, finally, to the moment when, from being invited by Edgar Froese to perform as a guest in his band, covering for the absence of the original drummer(I don't know if we're talking yet of Tangerine Dream, perhaps it actually concerns The Ones), he became a full, "registered" member of the group. TANGERINE DREAM's debut, though mainly a first solid album launched three years after the band (or the concept of it) started to form, is Electronic Meditation, the only one including Klaus Schulze. In a nebulous, experimental work, noisy and stoned, such as this one, the best thing we can notice is how Schulze adds flavor and intensity, through hallucinating percussion cliques, to a music that's anyway minimalistic, chaotic and instinctual.

Immediately after his singular appearence in Tangerine Dream (there's a mention about a similar guest appearence in AMON DÜÜL II, in a 1969 concert) - a specific moment turning out to be just as unique in TD's music - the next big step for Schulze is founding the band called ASH RA TEMPEL, together with two other young masters of that time, Manuel Göttsching and Hermut Enke. The boys bought equipment that was very similar to that used by Pink Floyd, a super-band for which the three had, apparently, a special affectio. The Ash Ra Tempel debut is however much more "drenched", being a stimulating example of kraut-rock, on the space, slow experimental, acid side. Many concerts follow afterwards. Schulze leaves though again after just one year, due to some disagreements about orienting towards blues, a style in whose popularity Schulze couldn't recognize himself. Although Ash Ra Tempel don't visibly slip towards that style which was desire...

The

price of

plural vibrations

is equal to the work of

a man charged with the art

of tangible thoughts. A question

of how and why has been asked but

our duties may outweigh such discourse.

We are the music takers; the music fakers; the

music shakers; the music forsakers and the music

rakers. He is the music baker and therefore the music

caker; he is the Musicmaker; the music quaker, and most of

all, the music waker. New is old, sometimes gold, sometimes in

the pot nine days old enough to be your grandfather and spewing his

unearthly earthenware here, there, and everywhere but the fullness of mind.

day 7, semisolar - Fading. Power supply dwindling. Soundwave patterns persist. No known source. Natural, unnatural... both at same time. Almost human. Even forgiving, yielding. Is this death? Is this sound? Is sound death? Are moments of such peace; such delicacy and grace; but also menace. I hear bells.

day 8, semisolar - A taking of souls by unrighteous means. You have no right. But I am a free man. Twisting, distending. I live.

day 4, solar - Fourth full day, inert kinesis outbound from Sol. Audible signal now in total regular auditory; musical, sequenced. Relentless. Multiple layered signal, steady but not predictable. Now modulated, repeat modulated : risen by at least a minor third [western scale], maybe more. Highly unusual, possibly xenoformic in nature. Seems to have had frequency increase as I've moved farther from Sol.

day 5, semisolar - Signal maintained but changed; unified tone-field with smaller granulars influencing cosmosition; deeper but diluted colorations; Wait ... what's this ... what's this. Percussive. No doubt about it, impact tonalogics clear as day. Impossible but there they are-- multiple impact resonations mixed in sync with tone signals. Without doubt a form of music, either naturally occurring or sentient-made. Comp is stuck, baffled.

day 6, semisolar - Exterior transmission fully altered now; Chaotic, if I didn't know better I'd say it was the ocean on Earth. And there's something else: Odd, theremive, elastatic, profoundly organic considering I'm almost outside MW. No matter, just a few hours left before E-suit fails. Tell my family I love them. Transmitting now.

date: Unknown

parsec interval: .0009

vector: Just past Sol, veering at Centaurus

day 1, solar - Survived impact of biswift Tanaka, must've been superparticle. Damage catastrophic. Moving through space in E-suit, comfortable but shaken. Not a lot of hope for rescue. Inert movement OK, spatial kinetics proving a challenge. Fields check-out but now getting something unusual on, of all things, my exterior receiver. Sounds like solid waveform with pulse. Pleasing, layered with corrected forms creating "echo". Patterns are regular but comp says no; comp says varied. That's odd. Hold on ... hold on ... form alters. Repeat; form a l t e r s. Off for now -----

day 2, solar - Most peculiar. Altered form held for second day and now vox mimic. Repeat vox mimic. *New alteration*, slight increase in temporals, comp now reading multiple source transmission. Source signal lost, flares-- flare interference. Background vibratories, a shadow?

day 3, solar - Shadows developed, extraordinary. Much like music, expansive, sedate but vast, reminds of the Tuvan throat singers, overtonal, tangible. Beginning to help relax me, pass some time, emotionally stabilize. I actually got five hours sleep(!). Most gratifying. Getting more now, becoming part of my reality. Tapering off. Sounds like thunder.

Is. This. What. It. Is. To. Be. Dead.

Or of a segment pulled through with pain and pleasure. Or of humming underwater with the sun. Or of, not you moving but that moving over you. That separating past you.

It is always tilting to a point of constant return until the equality of that perception unfolds as bits of thirst, grains of her thoughts, the meal of the Recycler of Souls. Grist of reality of sleep of lifting so that all atomized particles are longer without time or that which this new house of wardship is took up by the thoughts. Of me and you and them and.

Without time. Out with time. With or without time. Times with, times without. In with time, out with timeout. Out time with times of in. Times are in, time is out. Of in, of out, of time. In time; In time; In time. Out of time out of time out of time out of time out of time out time out of time out of time out time of out time of out time of out time of out time of out time of out time of out time time of time time of time of time of time time of time time of time time of time time of time time of.

Believing me, believe you me, you believe me, me you believe or we could dance but unlikely curtains make it difficult of bowls of steam that may or mayor or may. Provides an underbelly; mask of foundation so that the heavy mentals may weigh upon each and every. Notwithstanding or without standing outstanding standouts standing out of standing, lucky we had a thought of such as this.

Review by Neu!mann

3 stars The sequel to Klaus Schulze's popular 1997 film score actually has no relation to the earlier LP, despite the obvious similarities. The album wasn't, as stated on its back cover, "additions to the original soundtrack"; nor was it a collection of leftover tracks from the same recording session. In fact it might never have been recorded if Schulze wasn't persuaded, with a polite twist of the arm by his new Island Records boss Chris Blackwell, to "make another record for us like Moondawn or Body Love" (quoting Schulze's recollections). It was a suggestion he apparently couldn't refuse at the time.

The new artwork further reinforced a phony connection to the prurient attractions of the earlier record, famously commissioned for a Dutch porno movie. But all that artfully posed flesh on the front cover wasn't completely gratuitous. There was an undeniable eroticism to Schulze's keyboard technique at the time, disproving the stubborn misconception that synthesizers were cold and sterile ("for me, electronic music is totally sensual", he said in a 2004 interview).

The album opener "Nowhere, Now Here", one of his longest intergalactic jams to date, was a quintessential slice of Berlin School hypnotism, slowly building steam over 29-epic minutes. The album's other new track, "Moogetique" (which gave its name to the album in some markets), is a brooding yet beautiful example of Schulze's music at its formless best. In between is the punchy "Stardancer II", not a new recording but a slightly longer remix of its namesake from Volume One.

In style and content the second album is entirely equal to its predecessor. And yet it was still a cash-grab re-boot in a way, and the sequencing of tracks (in the linear, not the electronic sense of the word) lacks the natural flow of the original Body Love. Later re-issues include a generous but meandering postscript, rescued from the vaults and given the numbskull title "Buddy Laugh (A Rock 'n' Roll Bolero)". Unlike other Klaus Schulze bonus tracks, this one really does resemble an outtake, despite the awesome rhythmic drone that surfaces deep into its 23+ minute running time.

It helps to hear Volume Two as a direct continuation of the first Body Love album, rather than what it really is: an unrelated companion (it's a pity the two weren't packaged together as a twin-LP...imagine the gatefold sleeve art!). But even a good sequel will have trouble measuring up to its forefather, and 'Body Love 2' will always be the next best thing to the original version. Post coitum omne animalium triste est, so forth.

4 stars The first of two matching soundtracks for a Dutch pornographic film (directed by an Italian aristocrat affecting a Scandinavian alias) continued in the same direction as Schulze's best-selling "Moondawn" album (1976), with lots of textbook Berlin School Moog vamps over a rhythmic bed of rock-steady acoustic drumming. The formula wasn't fully realized on the earlier LP, but Schulze refined it here to the acme of synthetic excellence, succeeding where "Moondawn" didn't because of the dynamic urgency of the music.

Maybe he was inspired by the film scenario, which follows a decadent blue-blood couple who arrange to have their teenage daughter deflowered at an upscale orgy on her 18th birthday. If so, it's hard to reconcile the energy and drive of the album opener "Stardancer" with the mechanical dispassion of hardcore movie sex. The swirling Arabian chords and near-eastern motifs were fast becoming common stock for synth jams of this sort, but each long piece is incredibly textured, and the live drumming by old pal Harald Großkopf (like Schulze, another of R.U. Kaiser's Cosmic Jokers) gives the album real muscle.

It's a well-balanced effort, too. The pulse-raising agitation of "Stardancer" segues nicely into the much calmer interstellar drift of "Blanche" (named for the composer's girlfriend). The subsequent tension between the two is then resolved by the side-long (on vinyl) "P.T.O.": 27-escalating minutes of passionate synth-rock foreplay and release, more stimulating (I imagine) than anything in the film itself.

The '05 Revisited Records CD re-issue includes the unreleased epilogue "Lasse Braun", a hyper-drive extension of Schulze's earlier (and flawed) "Picture Music" album, adding twenty-two minutes of quietly bubbling synthesizers and ice-smooth soloing (and name-checking the film's director). Most bonus tracks are superfluous footnotes, but in this case the appendix perfectly complements the original album, looking back in satisfied afterglow while anticipating the second wind of Volume II.

Klaus Schulze was an artist approaching his creative zenith in 1977, and the Body Love albums (both of them) were the final steps below the career-peak plateau of "X", released the following year.

La Vie Electronique 8

Review by Atrium

3 stars Actually, is 3.5 stars.

I expected more from this volume as the other previous volumes of La Vie Electronique. The cherry on the cake is the track Hitchcock Suite, wich is a MASTER PIECE in the infinite music of Klaus Schulze. This marks all the period of percussion music made by Klaus Schulze, wich personally I don't like it very much. Probably because of the inclussion of Arthur Brown in vocals. I feel it very annoying, with less sense, comparing it with the astral ambient made by Schulze's keyboards.

Although, there are two interviews in wich Klaus mentions all the inspiration that he had in that period, wich is very interesting hearing it.

In general, it's an excellent collection of that period in Klaus Schulze's career, having almost all tracks live, performed on tour by the years of 1979-1980.

4 stars After briefly joining ranks with both Ash Ra Tempel and Tangerine Dream, KLAUS SCHULZE decided to trade in his drums for an organ and learned how to process the hell out of it until it sounded like the background music for a strange alien world far, far away in another galaxy. This Berlin native took the freak factor aspect in Krautrock and simply removed the rock part of the equation and ran away with the rest. IRRLICHT (which technically includes Quadrophonische Symphonie für Orchester und E-Maschinen behind it and means will-o'-the-wisp) is one of his early spacey drone albums that is more Musique concrète than his later more melodic concoctions. The album simply consists of strange manipulated organ sounds with other strange samplings of guitar, zither, voice, oboes, cellos etc.

This is one of the strangest albums out there as it truly sounds divorced from what many would deem "music." There are only subtle musical scales or chord progressions if they occur, no harmonies and just a parade of sounds that mostly stay in a single drone with flutterings of various effects thrown in at any given moment akin to the randomness of slowly drifting clouds in the sky taking new forms that come and go but only in non-repetitive fleeting tidbits of originality never to be duplicated again. Speaking of duplication, actually maybe there was. When SCHULZE left Tangerine Dream they couldn't decide who had the right to use this idea so it turns out they both did with TD releasing a similarly styled album on "Zeit."

This was a revolutionary time in electronic music where experiments with newly invented musical gear had hitherto never been created although the freaky Krautrock and psychedelic music of the late 60s and early 70s was hinting towards the desire to create soundscapes that utterly escape the gravitational force of the confinements of already established musical patterns. Although others had done so, no one had done it like this. This is slow-as-molasses music with musical arrangements clearly in the mix for the patient but I would imagine this to be too little pay off for many a rock fan.

I personally find this music to be stimulating and haunting, conjuring up images of what sound and "music" would be like if one were able to do a Matrix like trip into a Salvador Dali painting. Surreal and creepy, esoteric and icily beautiful. This is one that sets a mood and most likely will provide a demented background scene in a Halloween haunted house or S&M Dungeon but if you have the patience to actively instead of merely passively tune in then this one is rewarding on that level as well. Perhaps not an everyday album that you will finding yourself singing along with but certainly one that warrants a spin when the right mood and circumstances arise. A great start for a decades long career and ridiculously huge discography.

The 2006 remaster has a 24 minute bonus track called "Dungeon" which fits right in and indeed reminds me of going insane in a dungeon, sleeping naked on an ice cold stone cellar floor perhaps with chains around my limbs. Creepily brilliant stuff this is! Something must be wrong with me.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Ricochet for the last updates
