Live @ KlangArt 1

Klaus Schulze: Live @ KlangArt 1

»Klaus recently performed with Wolfgang Tiepold at the annual KlangArt Festival. The result was so well received by promoters and audience alike that two special CDs have been issued that contain the full performance. If Klaus' music was impressive before, the live performance is even more remarkable. That such a complex and musically adventurous sound composition could be created and realized by two men is miraculous. In contrast to many amateur electronic concerts I have witnessed where more time is spent setting up, fixing and simply trying to make faulty equipment work, all reports from fans and less cultist attendees have been raving. Both these Live @ KlangArt releases put to rest any false claims that Klaus has lost his creativity and musical vision.«
(A. Patterson, "Eurock", USA)

»The KlangArt CDs sound marvellous. Just like during the gig, the first CD is very softly mastered (the PA mix wasn't very loud during that part of the gig) and the second has much more depth and "power" to the overall sound. I am impressed! And the bonus track was a nice addition, although it has no relation at all to the actual event :-) I don't understand why this was recorded "June 2001 in Hambühren", as it sounds like a different mix of Pikant which was played during last year's gig at the Royal Festival Hall with Manuel. But of course I might be wrong :-) However, this 2CD is a truly great representation of the whole event that day and brings back many memories for me again. It's probably one of the best and coherent live albums that KS has ever released, it sounds very honest and pure. Just like ...Live... or The Dresden Performance

»Ich war selber nicht in der Lage, live dabei zu sein, aber hatte von vielen Hörer sehr viel Positives gehört übers Konzert. Nach Anhören der Klänge kann ich auch nichts anderes dazu sagen. Wieder einen Meilenstein zugefügt hat der Klaus! Meine Hörer bedanken sich!«
(Tim van Veen, radio, The Netherlands)
