Real Name:
Jens Paulsen
While growing up under the background training of classical and folk guitar, Jens Paulsen took a slightly different musical direction when he took the alias of "Patchwork." Consisting of the trio "me, myself and I, " Paulsen combined an ambient flow of electronic/psychedelic overtones that could fit into the category of "new age, " even though that term is considered taboo by Paulsen. This sound is characterized on Patchwork's self-titled debut in 1997, followed by Odeon a year later and 1999's Marsmellow. Diorama appeared in mid-2000. - Mike DaRonco

I think Jens Paulsen is one of the greatest talents in psychedelic chillout music and the label of Spirit Zone. With four excellent album, he became a very interresting part of downbeat music. His first disc (Patchwork) mixed the progressive trancey beats with chill and acid atmosphere. And it was just the beginning... Odeon had these, but it sounded like experimental or even drum'n'bass tunes - but still it was true psy-chill. Marsmellow - as the title says - is a fine, 'mellow' work with loads of mechanic effects and trippy sides, too. And last, Diorama, the end of Paulsen's workship. It was a professional concept of his three previous albums. A CD, where "chillbient", house, freestyle jazz, groovy rhythms and experimental were friends.

Since then, Paulsen only appears on a few compilations. Now, he is a leader of a multifunctional gallery, so - unfortunately - music is just a freetime activity for him.
