Klaus Schulze's solo debut is a masterful album featuring some of the most majestic instances of space music ever recorded, all the more remarkable for being recorded without synthesizers. "Satz Gewitter", the first of two tracks and the highlight here, slowly progresses from oscillator static to a series of glowing organ lines, all informed by Schulze's excellent feel for phase effects.
As a solo artist, Klaus Schulze emerged among the founding fathers of contemporary electronic music. His epic, meditative soundscapes are a key influence on the subsequent rise of the new age aesthetic. Born in Berlin on August 4, 1947, Klaus Schulze began his performing career during the 1960s, playing guitar, bass and drums in a variety of local bands. By 1969, he was drummer in "Tangerine Dream".

This is one of the most startling and evocative albums I have EVER listened to, I was totally unprepared for this soundscape, and from a recording that is over 30 years old.
Do yourself a favour, put this at the top of your want list, this is GENIUS at work, not an easy piece to listen to, but ultimately very rewarding, as good as anything released in the modern era!!
I cannot recommend this masterwork more strongly, if you want to find out where our electronic origins began, this is ONE of THE starting points!
Simply astonishing, and I thought I had heard it all!!
