Klaus Wiese is truly the ambient mastermind, surpassing both 'soft' ambient masters (e.g. Brian Eno) and 'harsh' ones (e.g. Yen Pox). His aim is neither to just accompany your activities as background sound nor to oppress you into a world of desolation and negativity. No, his purpose transcends modern hecticism and its pathologies and is instead oriented towards the Sublime, the Absolute, the Principle (according to Coomaraswamy's metaphysics). Low key, organic, perennial ambient, a spiritual oasis amidst modernity's onslaught.

To me KLAUS WIESE was and still is the greatest musician in the raising the vibratory level in your body departement, period. After getting stunned and addicted to his music ( a little over 60 CDs ), i am having problem listening to anyone else works . He feeled, sensed and finded a way to capture the sounds/vibrations of his well chosen selection of tibetan bowls, plus different other eastern exotic musical instuments . He moved himself aside and put those in forefront of his recordings, let them take all the space it needed to lead the way, in a very concentrated manners.

The result is an absolute egoless recording of very intense , strong pulsating, penetrating low drone , sweetened by very subtle or sometime very present scintillating high ringed tones, complemented by a wide arrays of others frequencies in between that once mixed togheter excite , ignite the cells in our bodies. He knew the receipe, no accident here.The shower of vibrations emanating and sinking into you is amongst the strongest you could feel throught a recording .

Listen to the classic albums TIBETISCHE KLANGSHALEN 1 ( more energetics ), or the no 2 album ( slightly more introspective, meditative ) still findable on the market today, THE HEALING SOUND OF THE TAMBURA or GANDHARFA albums (tambura recording as well) (last 2 are harder to find). Also interesting to have is TOUCH OF SILENCE, 55 minutes of simple bowls hitting with the resonance of each of them intertwoven together . With just the first two , you should have enough for a few months , and stay quiet before asking for some more.Those sounds could be of some benefit for you, if you let the entertainment zone and the judgment box aside for a moment.

Fews tips to optimise your listening experience here is important. With most common sound system you are going to need to put the bass (engage loudness button function if you have one) and treble mode to maximum setting, whitout creating distortion. A subwoofer would be a nice plus . Adjust the volume setting to a comfortable level , lay down in a cozy spot . Than there is no rule, you could take a nap , sleep ,sit ,read , work , the only thing you have to do is pay attention once in awhile of what is going on inside of you everywhere , inside your whole body, LISTEN try to feel ,sense whats going on in your feets, legs ,belly, chest,throat, head while the vibes are working into you... if you have problem feeling the vibration , blow up a birthday ballon full, and take it in your hand ... feel it now ...those vibes actually are working/sparkling everywhere inside of you, even around you . Once you get stung by those It wont stop, it wont go , even with headphone on it will work in all your body, give it a try.

Hard to find his CDs, yes, i finded the biggest bunch here on Discogs , but its getting harder and harder to find Klaus works . You could give some shot on Youtube or link yourself on a free internet radio station call ; RAISE YOUR VIBES TO THE MAX , featuring mainly the most effective (vibratory) works of KLAUS , and few others artists who swim in the same direction (some of them shared ,exchange , participated with him in differents recording ) with selected pieces from them. Its for you , for us, please share...

ALL THE BEST

Not many artists measure up when it comes to creating mystical and amazing soundscapes that transport you through time and space. Wiese's best works tie in with influences from Middle Eastern and Himalayan cultures, but unlike hopeless new age buddhism influenced music designed for yoga and spiritual healing, his works are deep and mesmerizing, at times even haunting. These soundscapes do not convey images of twenty something girls sitting in the lotus position at the ghats in Varanashi, but rather that of decaying temples built on the sides of rugged cliffs, reeking of butter lamps, grotesque yeti scalps casting ominous shadows on the shrine walls. The wind carries the delicate tones from a distant lone flute, as well as the smell of dromedaries and nomadic tents in the sands. Wiese is more than a musician, he is a magician.
