Michael is the inventor of the digital sequencing keyboard that permeated the Kosmiche scene in germany. He he introduced it first to Klaus Schulze then it spread to others. I used to know the history and evolution but thats been 25 years ago. Cant remember the whole story now. I would say his work on Departures is closer to Moondawn or Stratosfear which are more melodic and sequenced as I remember.

He was actually a member of Tangerine Dream at one point - he filled in for Peter Baumann on one of their tours. As DB points out, he was a contemporary of T Dream/K Schulze/Ashra and the other kosmiche artists, and had a big influence without releasing much in his own right. 'Departure...' is stronger than many T Dream releases.

"departure from the waste land" incredibly sounds like tangerine dream's  ricochet: more than spartacus sounds like Brain salad sirgery , and more than starcastle sounds like yes! i was just wondering!

I would say that several albums are similar coming
out of the maturing German Kosmiche scene from
1975 to 1977. Micheal's Departures, Ashra New Age
of Earth, TD's Ricochet and Schulze Moondawn all
have similarities to one another. The sequencer was
being born and these guys were working together,
developing the sound and borrowing from one
another.

Kinda like all the bands associated with the
Canterbury scene, many had similar things going on
and sound the same often to my ear.

I agree musically with you on Triumvirat being
similar to ELP, my only problem with Triumvirat is the
hokie lyrics IMO. I thought Lake was preaching a
philosophy to speak, T-rat seems to be writing a few
words to sing in the song, the same problem I
have with Rush's fairy tales.

Instrumental I like them but Geddy has to open his
mouth and its goofy sci-fi stuff to me, his vocal range
and everything this side of the sun lyrics just make it
too tedious.



He was musical director, co-composer and
co–scriptwriter on the acclaimed film
Koyaanisgatsi—the sound track featuring his
collaborations with composer Phillip Glass. He also
worked with Jack Nitsche scoring several projects
including the controversial 9 1/2 Weeks. Hoenig also
composed music for the television show Max
Headroom.
