Klaus Schulze

As both a solo artist and as a member of groups including Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze emerged among the founding fathers of contemporary electronic music, his epic, meditative soundscapes a key influence on the subsequent rise of the new age aesthetic. Born in Berlin on August 4, 1947, Schulze began his performing career during the 1960s, playing guitar, bass and drums in a variety of local bands; by 1969, he was drumming in Tangerine Dream, appearing a year later on their debut LP Electronic Meditation. The album was Schulze's lone effort with the group, however, as he soon co-founded Ash Ra Tempel with Manuel Gottsching and Harmut Enke, debuting in 1971 with a self-titled record; again, however, the band format appeared to stifle Schulze, and he mounted a solo career a few months later.

While Schulze's previous recorded work had been in a typically noisy Krautrock vein, as a solo artist he quickly became more reflective; although he acquired his first synthesizer in 1972, it did not enter into his solo debut Irrlicht, its long, droning pieces instead assembled from electronic organ, oscillators and orchestral recordings. The double album Cyborg followed in 1973, and a year later he issued Blackdance, his first recording to feature synths; Timewind, regarded by many as Schulze's masterpiece, appeared in 1975. Around that same time he began producing prog-rockers the Far East Family Band; the group's keyboardist, who went on to become the new age superstar Kitaro, frequently cited Schulze as the central influence behind his own plunge into the world of synths and electronics.

After collaborating with Stomu Yamash'ta on 1976's Go, Schulze resurfaced with a flurry of new solo material, including the LP Moondawn, 1977's Mirage and two volumes of the porn soundtrack Body Love. He remained extraordinarily prolific in the years to follow, with 1979's Dune, inspired by the Frank Herbert sci-fi classic, becoming his 11th solo record released during the 1970s alone. The 1980s were no less fertile, with Schulze issuing a steady stream of new work in addition to various productions released on his own IC label; Dig It was his first fully digital recording. By the following decade, Schulze had immersed himself in contemporary dance music, occasionally working in conjunction with Pete Namlook (as Dark Side of the Moog). The first half of the 1990s also saw Schulze experiment with sampling, starting with the album Beyond Recall, but these forays largely ended in 1995 with the release of In Blue. Ten years later, he began re-releasing his earlier works and collaborating with Lisa Gerrard of Dead Can Dance. In April 2008, Schulze released Kontinuum; he also released Farscape, a joint project with Gerrard, in June of the same year. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I grew up listening to Klaus' Space Music on the College Radio station, WXPN - The University of Pennsylvania , back from 1977 thru 1979. The Boston D.J., John Diliberto, introduced me to "High Energy Space Music" on his daily program, "DIASPAR" - back in the day, before he went on to create his famous "ECHOES" radio show.

RIP? He's still alive!
The body is not here, but his elegant mind is. It's in the Music He left behind for us.

Timewind is Schulze at his most poised and evocative. Moondawn is also very nice, and X has some great textures. Some of his 80's and 90's work became heavy-handed and contrived (artists do change and try new things) - for me, the best Berlin School stuff was done by artists with limited technology but well-execute d compositiona l and structural concepts.
my electronic medicine.
this song really helped me let a character commit suicide in the book I'm writing. It's a very tough scene, because just before I wrote it I understood why she was the way she was and I couldn't have done it without the hauntingly beautiful music from Klaus Schulze
Awesome music here, I probably wouldn't have listened if I knew it was going to be 30+ minutes, but it was well worth it.
This was a great track. Wonderful music. I'm a little bit confused though. This track was 29 minutes long, but you can't play Tales from Topographic Oceans by Yes or Brain Salad Surgery from Emerson Lake and Palmer. Both of which would be fine additionds to this project.

Nice mix of polyrhythms, ethereal sounds, and subtle driving beats in the Laeage Core track.
ahmadi727

I 1st heard him on the "Body Love" album. I think it was soundtrack for a x-rated movie. I like listening to him with headphones & a doobie!

It's like floating on a river of pleasure.
Amanda I agree. I've listened to this man's music since 1975. I would come home from a long day of stressful work and put his music on low volume and float. Sometimes listening endlessly...
Absolutely wonderful ambient artist, right up there with Roach, TD, and Eno!
The music pieces I'm engulfed by are his contemporary works program 651 of Hearts of space contemporary works 1&2 exspecially the c/d cocooning which has been out of print for years go to hos.com and take a listen if you can,its worthy and etherael,bra v o maestro Schulze
I love this guy his music is the purist stuff for meditation,I own alot of his works,there numbered and its great after a trying day at work.Larry smith
His music is so relaxing to me right now. This is the first time I've ever heard about this artist.
I'm listening to Agony right now, off of Ballet 1. I love it. I just discovered this artist a week ago and have fallen in love. It is the perfect music to write to, and also to just sit and listen to, to become lost in completely.
Amazing!
As we listened to Timewind, a friend sat staring at the album cover, spellbound. "I don't believe I have ever heard another album for which the cover art so accurately describes the music within", she said.
Layered tone poems. Like none other. As he says, the music as heard is only half composed - the listener completes the composition.
