Articulation
The word "articulation" means "articulation", "connection". This is an oversimplified assessment of the complex activity of the body, in which thoughts are transformed into words. And a lot here depends…

The advent of electronic music
Electronic music owes its birth precisely to experiments with sound. Experiments with sound, or rather with sound vibrations, were essentially closer to science than to music. But it was precisely…

Klaus Schulze. About the music. Interview

Any music, except for dance, which is intended directly for dancing, it seems to me, is intended for the spirit of a person, and not for the body. There is a lot of music that does not make much sense, it serves mainly for entertainment. However, some music has a higher mood, it is usually called “serious music” and it may also be interesting …

Most of my listeners told me that is more music for the soul than music for the body. Do you agree with that? Does it express feelings you your music have ever wanted to share?

Any music, except for dance, which is intended directly for dancing, it seems to me, is intended for the spirit of a person, and not for the body. There is a lot of music that does not make much sense, it serves mainly for entertainment. However, some music has a higher mood, it is usually called “serious music” and it may also be interesting …

“Use your mind!” (Use your Brain) – such a phrase could be read in the appeals that you used in your earliest years of creativity. Is this phrase relevant today?

It was not my appeal, it was the appeal used by the record company for their label. Also, this phrase was not used in my “earliest” years, but a few years later, in 1976 and ’77, by Metronome record company for their Brain label. It was an obvious pun. This is often done in advertising: Brain label and “Use your Brain”. As the label Ohr did a few years earlier his “Macht das OHR auf” (“Open Your Ears”)

Did it mean anything to you when you created the album “Irrlicht”? Was the album a success?

Whether this meant something to me or not is too general a question to give at least some detailed and honest answer. Please remember, twenty-six years have passed. What did I think 26 years ago? Do you remember what you thought 26 years ago? I do not remember. The success of such crazy music was not very great. On our website you will find a link to each of my albums, where you can read modern reviews that are published in the press, including on “Irrlicht”. After so many years, sometimes you can find something interesting there.

Who influenced your music when you decided to work alone? Did you use any aspects of classical music when you composed your works? I mean, they were not short compositions, not pop music, but long themes, electronic symphonies …

You ask who influenced me 1971, 1972? For my music, it was not someone alone, someone particularly eye-catching. I listened to rock music of that time, but as you know and could easily hear, my music of that period had nothing to do with ordinary music of that time. I experimented, searched for something new and continue to do it today. I hardly listen to any other music than mine. At least not consciously, just like fans and collectors do it.

Short songs = pop music, long songs = classical music? No, this is completely wrong. I listen to music.

What would you like to talk about Richard Wahnfried?

If I want to say something, I say. But, as you know, I write music. I don’t want to “say” anything about my music, nor about my solo albums, nor about Vanfried’s albums. If I spoke, I would write articles, or books, or maybe scripts. I repeat: I write music. And under the pseudonym Richard Vanfried made music with other musicians. I tried to create different music, different from my own solo.

What could you say about your experiences with opera voices?

The human voice is the first and most natural musical instrument, as well as the most emotional. Like many other people, I like to listen to singers, be it Willie Nelson or Maria Callas. Sometimes I like to make music with a singer or singers. It’s all. It all began in 1974 with the album “Blackdance”, in which the opera singer sings a Verdi collage.

Another question that many people ask time and time again: what equipment are you currently using?

It would be too difficult to estimate and say so right away. In order to answer, I would have to make a long listing. Please have a look at our official website.

The tools have improved since you started writing music. Did these changes help or somehow affect your creativity?

Oh sure. Everything changes all the time. Tools change, people change, actors change, fashion changes, media changes, listeners change, their views and opinions change … even the sound network of distribution and transmission of television programs has changed during this time: from vinyl to a digital CD, and from analog tape recording to a computer and recording to a hard disk.
