Oscillations #47: Klaus Schulze


Klaus Schulze (born 4 August 1947) is a German electronic music composer and musician. He was briefly a member of the electronic bands Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel before launching a solo career consisting of more than 60 albums released across five decades. Irrlicht is his first album.

In 2005, Schulze said, "Irrlicht still has more connections to Musique concrète than with today's electronics. I still never owned a synthesiser at the time". Schulze mainly used a broken and modified electric organ, a recording of a classical orchestra rehearsal played backward, and a damaged amplifier to filter and alter sounds that he mixed on tape into a three-movement symphony.


OSCILLATIONS is a show exclusively dedicated to vintage electronic music. It´s directed and presented by Astronauta Pinguim. You can hear it every FRIDAY & TUESDAY at midnight and at 6 pm (GMT) here on Stress.fm.
