It's great! And very much in the same way as the greatest stuff from TD is, early to mid 70's. The freshest take on the Berlin school sound for years in my opinion. You need to hear the whole album, preferably with headphones, instead of clips in the net... To really understand how the thing works. ...

I was becoming convinced that Berlin school styled electronic music is overdone by now and there's nothing new there anymore. Luckily I was wrong... This is fresh, very good stuff and the strangest thing is that it is a pair of older veterans of the genre behind it... Peter Baumann and Paul Haslinge...

Not eurocrack stuff, but modular ambient anyway... This is absolutely fantastic...so musical and athmospheric stuff, but very minimalistic and ambient. It's done on 1967 moog modular + some polymoog filtered thru it for some polyphonic textures. The only effect is a short delay between the l and r c...

Yeah, that Alert is probably the one to wait...also would be very nice if a decent tapes for Vampira and the Klangwald shows came up in German archives. Then there is the lack of sounboard recordings from 1976, probably their peak as live improvisation group. Otherwise TD is pretty well sorted after...

I work in education in my day job and have quite a bit of informal talk about culture, films and music with 13-16 year olds as a result.

I have one too. Very interesting machine, has a nature of its own, surely. Great one for experimental stuff with strange, glitchy pads etc. One thing that i have noticed, that it is actually quite difficult to get to sit in comfortably in the mix with other gear. Its sound is somewhat hard and metal...

For instance on Phaedra Out-Take 1 (11:43) there is clearly an Elka Rhapsody being used, those didn't come out un...
