4 stars This unknown german artist released this first album in 1971. Deuter is classified as "new age" cause that's what most of his records are. But his two first albums -D and AUM- have nothing to do with insipid relaxation music.

This is psychedelic experimental prog entirely done by the master himself, showing there its great skills as a musician, composer and producer.

The first long piece "Babylon" is crossed by psychedelic guitar, while bass offers a hypnotic and slow rhythmic pattern. Electronic effects and sound illustrations (baby's cry, distorted bell's ring) show the heavy LSD influence. Not surprisingly, the mood is very cerebral and requires to be in a similar state of consciousness than Deuter when composing it, or at least to be very open-minded, in order to fully enjoy it.

The others short pieces use water sound as a rhythmic element and much sitar, also rolling percussion showing there the world, natural side of his music. The last one "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" features cyclical repetitive synthe.

A strange and fascinating record, not to put between all ears.
