Hi All

The new Klaus Schulze - Silhouettes is announced,
It will be released on the 25th of May.
Klaus Schulze - Silhouettes (digipak) (cd)
Klaus Schulze - Silhouettes (2 LP + CD) (2-lp)
2 versions and there is also a very special edition, we are finding out what that is.

"" Following the celebrations of his 70th birthday in August 2017,
Klaus Schulze, one of the most important electronic music artists
worldwide, has announced the release of his new studio recording
Silhouettes for May 2018. The four pieces ´Silhouettes`, ´Der lange
Blick zurück`, ´Quae simplex` and ´Châteaux faits des vent`, which he
worked on between summer and autumn 2017, are just as expansive in
terms of playing time and artistic vision as we’ve come to expect from
Schulze’s work. According to the internationally highly respected
musician, composer and producer, the new material reflects – due to
health problems – a very quiet and for this reason very meditative
time. Schulze describes the music on Silhouettes as a “reduction to
the essential things” and has consciously worked only very sparingly
with solos and vocal elements. He explains: “No great distractions,
nothing to force your attention in a certain direction, no major
effects or gimmicks, no frills or dominant rhythms. It was important
to me to paint the pictures in the depth of the space, the sonic
fields of tension and atmosphere.” Since the early 1970s, Klaus
Schulze has repeatedly been referred to by the press as “King of
Cosmic Music” or “Magician on the Big Moog“, his work frequently
having been classed as a “monument of forward-looking music”. Along
with his great talent for innovation, Schulze is also considered to be
one of the most productive artists of his time. Experts estimate the
number of releases featuring Schulze to be at least 200, but more
probably 500.""

======= Reviews ======
89978 Ramp - “No sleep ‘til wilmersdorf”

“No sleep ‘til wilmersdorf” (the Berlin years 1978/79) is a 76-minute
continuous aural travelogue through space and time seeing the composer
remember and reflect upon his childhood spent in a village near
Berlin. Besides the use of a vast range of analogue equipment, the
8-track outcome features profound mood and atmospheric music evoking
melancholy and assorted emotions as it progresses. Opener “Compact
Phasing A” already sets a great mood retro fans will embrace for sure.
The 16-minute title piece though is a more dynamic exercise fitting
sonically somewhat in the frame of TD’s “Richochet” but taking the
Parsick-approach. Lots of mellotron, phasing and reverb grace the
vintage music on the release as well as slow-paced heavy and deep
sequencing, while “Haunted Hills” and “Salomon’s Road” hint nicely
toward Peter Baumann’s first two albums. “Oedipus” makes a lovely
haunting and mystifying spherescape hovering freeform in space before
moving gently into “Orphelia’s” mesmerizing psychedelic aural spirals.
On the intimate sounding final piece things simply fade to grey and
dissolve eventually. Although a different beast than its predecessor,
“No sleep til wilmersdorf” proves most rewarding, cohesive and strong
in its own right deserving attentive (headphone) listening. The
inclusion of various binaural field recordings as well as thc surround
recording and mastering simply put the icing on the cake. Congrats
Stephen for this very well accomplished batch of music.

Wavestar - Wavestar live UKE 1985 (cd)

WAVESTAR: LIVE AT UKE 1985 (1st Time on CD for Archive Recording /
Gatefold Card Sleeve)

1st time on CD for archive recording of the original line-up in
performance at UKE 1985 where the band brought the house down with
their debut 'live' performance!
Hot on the heels of 2018's release of the WAVESTAR II: 'Nightwinds' -
CDS Towers' current # 1 Album - comes this rare archive recording of
the original WAVESTAR line-up in performance at the UK Electronica in 1985.
WAVESTAR first came to the attention of Synth Music fans via Denis and
Jeanette Emsley, two of the UK's main EM supporters who ran the
cassette-based magazine: 'Inkeys' and Lotus Records in
Newcastle-Under-Lyme, the EM mail-order firm run by Andy Garibaldi in
the early 80's.
As well as being instrumental in bringing bands like WAVESTAR to the
attention of the record buying public, Andy G was also heavily
involved with the Emsleys in running 'UK Electronica', an annual
day-long Electronic Music festival - an event where fans could
experience music from artists and bands involved in the genre that
they would not otherwise get a chance to see, as well as enjoy music
retail stands selling EM titles that were only ever available via
mail-order and could not be found in any "normal" record shop.

This WAVESTAR performance captured at UKE Sheffield University on
Saturday, August 24th 1985 was their first exposure to a 'live'
audience, so many did not know what to expect, but by the end of the
show the whole place was won over by the exciting new music they had
just heard that seemed to bundle strong melody and "Berlin School"
sequencing into one mighty glitter ball scintillating synth music!
The set featured tracks from the duo's first two cassette releases:
'Mind Journey' (1984) and 'Zenith' (1985) and includes a rousing
rendition of the track that was to become the bands iconic anthemic
encore piece: 'Time Node'.

The core WAVESTAR duo on stage was John Dyson (guitar / keyboards) and
Dave Ward-Hunt (sequencing / keyboards), and they were joined on stage
for tech/fx help from Tim Dyson (John's nephew) and Shaun D'Lear, a
friend who went on in later years to assist as a member of John
Dyson's band for his solo concert performances.

From there on it was somewhat of a meteoric rise to fame for WAVESTAR
throughout the late 80's Electronic Music scene, culminating in their
signing to US based Record Company: Jem / Passport Records. The
label's electronic music imprint: Audion, run by Larry "Synergy" Fast,
was to be the first to release WAVESTAR's classic 3rd album 'Moonwind'
internationally in 1987, and on three formats: LP, CD and Cassette!

Everyone who owns the three 80's WAVESTAR albums and the recent
WAVESTAR II comeback album will want to own this amazing piece of
early "warts and all" UK Electronic Music history.

'Wavestar Live At UKE 1985' comes in a Gate-fold Card Soft-Pak and is
released on the 11th of May 2018.
