And as such, it is still my favorite. Out time with times of in. Posted Friday, April 1, 2011 Review 426315 Timewind is the album that got Klaus Schulze a lot of recognition, and is his most accessible work that I've listened to. The last 20 or so seconds is a loud crashing sound that goes back and forth fast between the channels. The long-held organ chords kind of give that away; it's hard to hold a chord on one keyboard and screw around with synths at the same time. Logical when you take a look at the track-list. It starts out quicker than Bayreuth Return, but it retains that slow but steady pace Schulze always seems to play at.
Not to mention how prolific the guy is!! If no files were found or matches are not what you expected just use our request file feature. This is music made for cd on which it benefits enormously. The second cd of the 2006 reissue contains an alternate take Echoes of Time which is actually superior, it just ended up too long to make it onto the original album. Not much sequencer here as the music is more atmospheric and symphonic. Nothing short of essential, as far as I'm concerned. Bayreuth is the Bavarian town where Wagner had an opera house built for the first performance of his massive Ring Cycle. This is the first, the original.
Its rhythmic basis is a single pattern, transposed and manipulated in real time. There's no percussion on this track, but there is a mid-paced beat that never really becomes established and has the same head-bobbing effect and tempo. Sounds echo as a wind storm blows in. The album proper ends there. Posted Saturday, November 26, 2016 Review 1649047 Ethereal.
The kaleidoscopic key changes without obvious 'home key' the piece remains consonant throughout may be seen as a musical nod to Wagner: also, a Leitmotif appears. First soaring strings and lots of beeps and bleeps, then slowly a powerful sequencer and slow but exciting synthesizer flights joins. Posted Wednesday, November 15, 2006 Review 98903 The first major commercial success for synthesizer trailblazer Klaus Schulze was, not coincidentally, also his first album to reach a worldwide audience, thanks to a contract with ace British label Virgin Records. The second composition Wahnfried has a bit melancholical climate featuring a lush strings sound but halfway this track fails to keep my atttention, I miss something. Made up of just two, expansive tracks - 'Bayreuth Returns', which breaks the thirty minute mark and 'Wahnfried 1883', which is just a couple of minutes shorter - 'Timewind' is a truely astounding musical experience that slowly and carefully unfolds to reveal layers of meditative sonic patterns and rhythms, strange noises and electronic sounds, all the time sucking the listener into Schuzle's wonderous world. Wahfried 1883 is a more abstract piece, without any sequencer pulses but with those gorgeously flowing melodies that keep developing endlessly, without ever settling to a fixed tonal centre check Wagner for more theory about the technique.
While the overall effect is relaxed the music can be listened to on different levels, either as a quasi-symphonic composition or as electronic wallpaper. The album was dedicated to Richard Wagner, apparently a big influence on Schulze. It is always tilting to a point of constant return until the equality of that perception unfolds as bits of thirst, grains of her thoughts, the meal of the Recycler of Souls. Recorded after Picture Music, this album is even more electronic sounding than it. When I see how heavy metal bands are scoring here, I'm just voiceless! One of the most beautiful pieces of electronic music and the pinnacle of Schulze's output together with his album Mirage. Such a gigantic work for instance! Again we have two side long tracks, what's surprising though is the length of this album at 59 minutes considering it was on vinyl. It was originally released in 1975, and in 2006 was the twenty-second Schulze album reissued by.
I don't see Timewind as an album that will be remembered as a masterpiece of modern electronic music, but that does not mean I dislike the album, it still has some very redeeming qualities, in the end. That the album also contained some of Schulze's best music to date certainly helped too, reinforcing his now-undisputed reputation as one of the premier electronic musicians of our time. The original album contained two side long tracks while the 2006 re-issue is a 2 disc version with the original album on disc 1 and three bonus tracks on disc 2. Oh, and the cover painting by Urs Amann fits the sound of the music perfectly. If file you want to download is multipart you can use our to check whether multiple download links are still active before you start download. Bayreuth Return is an excellent piece, it has a bit of an unexpected ending, sounding as if Klaus's partner came in and accidentally tripped over the equipment while he was still in the middle of his continuous symphony. The list of superlatives to bestow on Schulze is endless, especially so for this defining album Timewind.
To be honest Timewind doesn´t do much for me, but contrary to some of the earlier work by Klaus Schulze this album doesn´t annoy me or make me feel like I´ve been cheated. In time; In time; In time. This fifth opus was ordered by many media centers, and then became a huge success. If file is multipart don't forget to check all parts before downloading! I think the success of Tangerine Dream helped his popularity in the United States. Posted Monday, February 6, 2012 Review 627497 Is.
Schulze's music is always largely improvised and he has that unique gift to make his music progress in a very organic way. It makes a fitting conclusion to the extended double-disc, offering a fascinating glimpse of just how far Schulze had come in the previous 25 years. Also the construction of the pieces is different. That's how France was the country that truly launched the German drummer's career, for good. Schulze appears to diagram the song in graphic representations of the synth patches he uses, rather than write out traditional music. Bayreuth Return is a pleasant track which I sometimes use as background music when I read, while Wahnfried 1883 is a bit darker and commanding.
