Deuter biography
A one man band, Deuter blends acoustic and electronic instruments, ethnic influences, and sounds from nature. Deuter's spiritual quest has leaded him to India, where he lived on an ashram, studied Indian music, and recorded several albums. He presents a unique and intriguing blend of Eastern and Western styles.

His first recording, D, was released on Kuckuck in 1971, followed by "AUM" in 1972. These both albums are krautrock masterpieces, especially AUM. After, Deuter turned to a more new age style, more accessible, but less inspired.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by Dobermensch

2 stars I bet old Deuter D regrets choosing this as the front cover eh? He looks like one of the villains from 'Scooby Doo'. Either that or he's watching something very dodgy on his laptop. If only he'd got hold of Klaus Schulze's graphic designer he may have had a more successful career. As it is the guy went on to create over 30 albums... none of which are well remembered. All apart from this and the follow-up 'Aum'

The imaginative and thought provoking album title 'D' is an odd recording which has quite a few organ drones throughout. It's entirely instrumental with some distinctly Ash Ra Tempel similarities. There's also a fair amount of backward taping which always pleases my brain.

'Faust' like guitars are played on 'Babylon' giving a very Krautrock feel. Happily each track sounds relatively different from the last, even though there's the cheesy 'Krishna Eating Fish' track where the white guy gets hold of an Eastern instrument (Sitar) and waffles about aimlessly, strumming nothing in particular and endeavoring to break the shackles of a homeland he wants no part of. Bah! I hate that. Interestingly, he was born 10 days before the awful bombing of Dresden. And uncannily, like Edgar Froese who was born on the same day as the D-Day Landings on June 6th June '44.

There's too may other good German bands out there to bother with this if truth be told. It's too soft and flat to merit anything more than an average score. Perhaps the exception is 'Atlantis' which is far more experimental with its 'Moolah' and 'Zoviet France' reversed phasing. A full album of this and I'd have been more than happy.

Call me 'Shallow Hal' - but this loses a star due to the front cover. I mean, come on - would you hand this over on a first date to the woman of your dreams?

Deuter Krautrock

Review by admireArt
Collaborator PSIKE Team

4 stars Less experimental, more focused song writing, great results!

Stepping aside from his earlier electronic experimentations, Deuter shows an unknown dexterity for creative and serious musical composition. In "Ecstasy", the biggest surprise are its early rennaisance and baroque musical figures, alongside very "electronic" compositions.

For starters do not mistake this work by its art cover, name or the future "new age" music, Deuter will pursue without rest, in posterior projects. Here in this work, the freshness of new found methods of expression, that are both novel and original, express themselves with a very tasteful, balance of what may seem, at close distance, as opposed goals, turns out succesfully, due to the precise dosage of creative, yet un-pretentious "classical music" structures, rendered into form with a match of "electronic" synths that instead of emulating the sound of acoustic instruments, catches their spirit with analogue synth sounds, which greatest attribute, is not faking the original acoustic sounds, but "catching" their inner "depth" and sonic timbre.

So,.. Really inspired songs that move around very "progressive" electronic pieces, counterpointed by classical music early structures, into "new age" like-environments. Pulling it off, with innovative but "focused" musical composition and a "measured" but inspired performance.

****4 "A jewel in Deuter's discography, therefore a "jewel" for Prog audiophiles, electronic and not", PA stars.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

2 stars The second album by Deuter, Aum, sees the composer embracing influences from Indian music and incorporating them into a largely bland New Age framework. Penultimate track Susani is the odd man out here, exploring as it does dark ambient realms which remind me a little of some of Brian Eno's work later in the decade, but it's not quite enough to justify the tepid, featureless, uninspired material that surrounds it. Nor does Deuter's use of ideas from Indian music ever quite come across as authentic; in fact, it feels like a gimmick. The album isn't outright incompetent, but at the same time I can't strongly recommend it.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Far more lively and varied than the tranquil New Age material that would come to dominate his career, Deuter's debut album is a good but not fantastic contribution to the krautrock scene, with a bunch of chaotic musical ideas thrown in but nothing memorable enough to call to mind five minutes after listening to it. Probably the most interesting thing about it is that this is a one- man project, with multi-instrumentalist Deuter playing every instrument you hear - but that said, there's plenty of similar experiments of this sort out there, and this one is hardly the best. It's by no means terrible, but at the same time it isn't anything to get too excited about. It's spacey experimental krautrock full of odd noises. Even in 1971, that had become a cliche.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by beebfader

4 stars Deuter follows up his debut album `D' with a change of scene and spiritual inspiration; travelling to India to make music had a profound effect. This time, armed with a 4- trackmachine and a customsfriendly EMS suitcase synth, Deuter lays down an album of light meditative beauty. The parallels with Popol Vuh's music are audible, although one is quite prepared to give either the benefit of the doubt as to who influenced who...it was everyone's `trip' to go to India in those days.

The album flows from start to finish in and out of bright sitar-led pieces, beautifully recorded ocean sounds, and spacious guitar figures, underpinned by the aforementionned synth providing electronic drones and decoration here and there.

For 1972 this is incredibly ahead of it's time, it has a joyful spiritual centre a long way from the cliched wallpaper `New Age' music would eventually become. If you're looking for a rich, texturally beautiful late night album this might well be the one. There is a lightness and flow which add up toa sumptuous whole and never is it less than stimulating and captivating. The spirit of peace that Deuter found in India (to the extent that he found his own guru, and was able to use his dwelling as a studio) shines through on this sparkling album, which like the cover sounds blue, oceanic and genuinely blissful.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by beebfader

4 stars Multi-Instrumental German masterpiece from 1971, 20 Oct 2010

(Reactive 2010 Reissue)

Deuter may not be a name familiar to many. His extensive catalogue consists largely of what most people would describe as `New Age' music. This is not the case here, on his debut work. Coming from the motherlode of classic and forgotten Krautrock, Esoteric Records' Reactive imprint has once again uncovered a gem (see also the follow up release the very different `Aum' also on Reactive).

Originally issued in 1971 on the Kuckuck (Cuckoo) label, `D' is a fascinating early attempt at a multitracked solo album, which is interesting not least for the technical limitations it overcomes. Using a single two track Revox tape machine, Deuter overdubbed layers of instruments and `found sounds' by bouncing tracks between left and right channels to create a captivating one man work. It is a triumph in that the sound quality is superb, it is wonderful in stereo throughout and a superbly conceived set of sound pictures and layered and varied instruments. Deuter was as the excellent sleevenotes point out, working with about 1% of the technology available on a laptop today, and it is largely a triumph.

The emphasis is on the textural rather than the melodic but there is much to hold the attention. The opening 15 minute epic `Babylon' is an excellent demonstration of recording techniques using found sounds, organ, and varispeed, glissando and backwards guitar to fully realise a constantly shifting soundscape suitable for late night contemplation. The ideas come thick and fast over its long duration covering all points between `Kosmische' and `Raga' rock, all expertly spliced into a satisfying whole. Flip it metaphorically over to side two and you have a suite of captivating music influenced as much by Stockhausen as early Pink Floyd. There are echoes of Klaus Schulze in the organ work, although it is far more economical than Schulze's sometimes overlong and crude extemporisations of the era (Deuter takes five minutes to say what Schulze might have said in twenty-five).

Deuter blends natural sounds, using water for its musical qualities, and `Krishna Eating Fish and Chips' is a lovely sitar work out (despite the frivolous title) that seeks to find the beauty in the instrument rather than any superficial treatment of it. `Atlantis' is a suitably watery textural piece, and closer `Gammastrahlen-Lamm' again uses organ drones to full effect.

There are a wide range of fascinating musical movements over the course of this 40 minute album, yes it was recorded in a one bedroom apartment, but it is a triumph of imagination both in music and recording/engineering techniques and overall is a dark mystery well worth investigating.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This was an album I had searched for for some time before discovering that "Wayside Music" had it. Thankyou Steve ! DEUTER is a one man band from Germany featuring one Georg Deuter. He is definitely a pioneer in the Electronics genre as this first album "D" came out before Klause Schulze released anything, while TANGERINE DREAM released their second record "Alpha Centauri" this same year, and KRAFTWERK released "2" also this same year of 1971.

"Babylon" opens with dark sounds then we hear a baby cry briefly as the haunting soundscape continues. It changes after 3 1/2 minutes as we get a rhythm. Another change before 6 minutes as the melody stops and it turns spacey again. Acoustic guitar before 10 minutes then the tempo picks up. "Der Turm / Fluchtpunkt" opens with percussion and other sounds. It's more intense 2 minutes in. A good rhythm arrives before 3 1/2 minutes.

"Krishna Eating Fish And Chips" is a little annoying for my taste with all the sitar. I like the spacey intro though. "Atlantis" opens with percussion and spacey sounds. This is an interesting track. Water sounds late. "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" is very spacey as sounds pulse and wash.

This would be a great addition to your Electronic collection.

Deuter Krautrock

Review by Thandrus

5 stars While most fans of Deuter's D and Aum don't favour his conversion to such kind of music, I adore it. I think his later works are at least as (if not more) inventive that his first two albums (although I love them both). First, he practically created absolutely new genre (although the name of New Age comes from the title of Ashra's album New Age Of Earth, it has more relations to Kosmische that to anything else). Second, despite the oceans of imitators he created a blend as almost nobody else does). To put it short, The Musical Heaven. By the way one could find a conceptual correlation with his older albums: they were trippy, kind of journey somewhere; with older works it shows that Deuter has reached that right place, the perfect state of mind. And I must disagree with opinions about insipidity and etc. It's just the peaceful atmosphere that tricks.

This album is one of the best examples of Deuter's music. It makes listener blow away his earthly problems and sink into the music. It opens with Wings Of Love. A very nice meditative track with a bit folkish ending. Then comes 11+ minute "epic" Ecstasy. One might even compare it to Klaus Schulze. The difference is that Schulze almost always uses minor chords (not a drawback) and Deuter almost always uses majors! Night Rain is a simple sequenced moody track. Blue Waves Gold - kind of Ecstasy, just shorter. Back to The Planet follows that cosmic mood - the nice sounding guitar is added. Brazilian Love is a good acoustic guitar piece. How many guitars are there 2? 3? Well I don't care, I enjoy it. Illaha Il Allah closes the album in beautiful slow-paced way.

I think objectively this album should rank between 5 / 4 stars but it has something more just than music in it. A hidden spirituality or something else, maybe, which is in perfect harmony with my personality and the fact is that I LOVE this recording so much. So an Advice: LISTEN AND ENLIGHTEN YOURSELF!

2 stars My first contact (loooooong ago) with multi-instrumentalist Deuter's works was with this album, which was released on the legendary Munich-based Kuckuck label. A far cry from Deuter's early experimental works (he had stopped after two albums before starting again four years later after a religious revival and finding his guru Baghwan Rajneesh - the man with the 72 Rolls Royce in his exile in Idaho, US nowadays), we are close to new age music, and most certainly in ambient music. Deuter always a mystical inspiration and his eastern influences came from his travels to the mid-east. But with this album, we are nearing much more the far east

In itself, not a bad album if you like this sort of new age stuff (Deuter is regarded as one of the originator of the style), but to me, this kind of album ricochets over the shell of my indifference. Rather useless unless falling into mystical crisis, but by no means a bad album, either. His future releases will be in the same spirit as this one, and if you must choose one of those new age albums, might as well make the one that started it all, this one.

5 stars Before turning to something more peaceful, soft and accessible with terribly boring "new age" efforts, Deuter made a name in the krautrock scene with the absolutely marvellous "D", essentially made of extended "tribal", "droning" and noisy improvisations. All tracks provide an ecstatic, glorious and sacred dimension that allows a comparison with the pioneering "Inside of the dream syndicate" and some archetypal psychedelic stuffs from Germany (Cluster at their beginning and Amon Duul at their most experimental moments). "Babylon" is an amazing, freaky composition with bizarre, strange, concrete "manipulated" sounds and fuzzy spacey guitar parts. "Der Turm/Fluchtpunkt" develops a ritual stoned theme always bringing to the fore some fuzzy guitars, tribal percussions and chaotic noises. With its large, cyclical organ sound and its patterns for sitar "Krishna Eating Fish and Chips" is a small interlude dedicated to spiritual music. The last track, "Atlantis" is the pick of Deuter's musical creativity: an intense, abstract dreamscape mixed with tribal, ritual percussions. "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" is a ferocious, dense level of transcendent sounds obtained by organic collages & loops; something nostalgic with ultra psychedelic effects. A progressive rock masterpiece and one the best effort produced during Krautrock's golden years.
