Another Klaus Schulze poll from me!  Big smile  This time let's not face him up against Ruins, though...that was an odd pairing if I've ever made one. LOL

Question's simple enough - do you prefer Klaus' drumming (heard in Ash Ra Tempel, mostly) or his electronic wizardry (heard in his billions of solo albums)? 

Here's a sample of each:

Drums:

from Ash Ra Tempel's debut.

Electronics:

from Timewind.

Hopefully these short samples are enough listening material. Wink

I hate Klaus Schulze, he's an idiot. Klaus Schulze on the other hand, that guy is awesome. I actually prefer it when he has drums mixed with his electronics on his solo albums (which is usually another drummer but here it is him):
 
 
Voted for electronics.

Yeah, I toyed with the idea of adding a "both" option for cases like Picture Music (which is a great album btw), but I figured I'd be one of those mean poll makers and have the voters choose between the two. Evil Smile

He was a great drummer, but that got kind of buried under the pile of electronic gems he made.

But like he always says, without being a drummer first he wouldn't have been able to 'feel' and create the rhythm of his electronic work.
Same goes for Chris Franke, who was a drummer before he became sequencer wizard with the Tangs

But there's also that 25-minute solo drums track on Jubilee Edition CD 15. Big smile

Electronics. As others pointed out, it was being a drummer that made him so alive to the possibilities of sequencers and electronic rhythms, and he also worked especially well with drummer Harald Groskopf in the late 70s/early 80s (X onwards; Groskopf also drummed with Ashra at around the same time, and made a pretty decent solo album).

Both of these things are connected though, and you can hear that in the way he uses beats, sequenzers and in the way he plays the moog. Electronic congas with switches if you will. He´s very rhythmbased - even when he´s atmospheric.
That´s an altogether different discussion I know, but maybe also why I find this to be tricky. 
BUT he and Froese, the Cluster boys, Schnitzler, Baumann, Hoenig and a few others were among the German originators of electronic music. Schulze and Froese perhaps being the most innovative out of the bunch - at least to my ears.. Electronics it isStern Smile

I'm thinking Klause would annihilate  Klause with his drumsticks while Klause was too busy trying to plug in his cords. Tongue

I enjoy his electronic explorations over his drumming skills.
