Latest News
The KS Circle #248
Issue #248 has been posted to all Circle members. It contains: ... and more.

You will find two samples of two older issues of The KS Circle here.
The new KS album Silhouettes will be released worldwide in May 2018!
...as digipak CD and as double vinyl LP!

Due to health problems, it is a quiet and meditative album. KS describes the music on Silhouettes as "a reduction to the essential things. No great distractions, nothing to force your attention in a certain direction, no major effects or gimmicks, no frills or dominant rhythms. It was important to me to paint the pictures in the depth of the space, the sonic fields of tension and atmosphere."

More Vinyl
The American label One Way Static Records will release the historic KS recordings from the first volume of the LVE series on vinyl.

Those titles were never intended for an LP release, in fact they were never intended for any release, until I have unearthed them from many various tape sources, mastered them, and put them on my three Edition sets, during the 1990s, and finally in the huge 50 CD set The Ultimate Edition. From 2009 to 2015 the same tracks were reissued again on 50 CDs in 16 sets of the LVE series, more or less in chronological order.

Among the many titles are also long tracks that do not fit on one LP side and the American label separates them for two or even three vinyl sides. The release of the first LVE box on three double LPs will happen during the next 4-5 months, they say. The first double LP was released on 9 February 2018. The label just launched the second volume in the series: https://www.onewaystatic.com/ows26

KS reissues on double LPs...
Universal Music will reactivate the old "Brain" label for a bunch of re-releases in December 2017. Among those are a few historic double albums by Klaus Schulze: Cyborg, Audentity, "X", Dziekuje Poland, ...Live... and En=Trance. Furthermore, two old Wahnfried single CD albums will be reissued, also as double LPs: Trance Appeal and Drums 'n' Balls (all without the bonus tracks that the CD reissues have).
...and also the single LPs
Fourteen other classic KS albums from the Brain label will follow on vinyl in early February. Have a look at the dealer of your confidence.
I have just heard the new album by KS!
Yes, there will be one! It has four long tracks, and, yes, his loyal fans who have grown old with Klaus and his music will love it.

I, for instance, love the first track, the title track, a melancholic, soft, environmental sound piece. The other three tracks have sequencers in the "old-fashioned" Schulze way. Partly with a great finale, as in track 2. On the whole it's nothing really "sensational", or "new", and that's why the listeners will enjoy it.

The title of the 75 minute album is Silhouettes, it was recorded in summer 2017, and it will be released in a few weeks (I suppose).
