@suspended i know you ain't just gonna ignore my man Klaus Schulze he just as much a pioneer in the field and was a member, i have a real soft spot for this kinda stuff this and "I Feel Love" listerally pulling open the walls of the future and it's this blinding multicoloured light.

And they did that by using these gigantic synths that took up half the room and would start to overheat after 45 minutes of use course a decent chunk of it sounds dated but embraced on its own terms this stuff still holds up (when it doesn't get too new agey of course)
i hope you've been checking out their live stuff cause some of their bootlegs are nuts

I rewatched Thief the other night. Gorgeous film.

maaaan after i saw Memoria and was struggling to piece my brain back together this was the only thing i could listen to that made sense... we need to talk Apichatpong Weersethakul in here
It's good then? I remember hearing about it then seeing Schrader list it as the second best film of the year after his own.

:ROFLMAO:

its very good i'm not hyperbolising its a film where i feel like trying to boil down what happens it in just to the plot kinda weakens it, you just need to watch it

REALLY interested to know how some people will react to the ending i was surprised but i was cool with it
 
saw them play that church near Highbury & Islington a few years back. I got too stoned to remember most of it

Have you seen near dark version?

They feel basically ambient, yeah?

Which, I guess, puts the # of albums in perspective. It's music-making on easy mode, max out minutes per idea—unless of course you're getting real intricate with textures.

during the first lockdown I somehow saved some money and realised I could splash out on the the "In Search of Hades" boxset - some real "previously unreleased" gems included, like this from the Phraeda out-takes:


Tangerine Dream - 2nd Day

I'm too drunk at the moment to pontificate on the "berlin school" in general, but let's just say this style of music has soundtracked plenty of early morning sunrise acid trips

this Edgar Froese solo album is particularly good combined with LSD:


Edgar Froese - Epsilon In Malaysian Pale

there is a point where the sequencers kick in about the ten minute mark and light pulses all around the space you are occupying - bliss

the switch from analogue to FM synthesis resulted in the Berlin School churning out some right shite from 1980 onwards, but somehow Klaus Schulze redeemed himself with this masterpiece from 2007 that soundtracked my first few months of initial lockdown


Klaus Schulze - Kontinuum

Berlin konti 'nuum
