It's surprising how well this has stood up over the decades. Nonetheless, a good electronic album, one of the better solo efforts by Klaus Schulze. Synths seem to rise out of the storm and build 3 minutes in, then take over. The two long tracks that shape 'Timewind' are both about half a half hour long, the first one being 'Bayreuth's Return', a slow, but somewhat hypnotic piece, and the second track 'Wanhfried 1883', even slower and more difficult to get into. At first it sounds too monotonous and samey, specially the A side, that seems to go along forever with little melodic variation. Evolving slowly but deliberately over the course of each album side, Timewind has been deemed an electronic version of an Indian raga. Some bubbling sequencers at the end.
. So obviously, the 2006 re-release is the recommended issue.

This, combined with Mirage and X, make up the most essential beginner's guide to Klaus Schulze. Note: Most reviews currently refer to the first album release without bonus tracks etc.
A Farfisa organ is also used. And that's really what this 30 minutes piece is about: a genuine awaken dream. It´s only the latter that can hold my attention for longer periods of time but I still think it´s way too long. One of the greatest achievements from Klaus Schulze and even from the Berlin School! Later he developped his technical and production skills, but Timewind remains to me the mi. Posted Tuesday, April 26, 2005 Review 34797 With Timewind, Klaus comes as close to perfection as he will ever, as his music has now reached perfection after still searching itself in Blackdance. Incredibly, this was recorded on a two track mahine. Or of humming underwater with the sun.
The sound effects are now more polished, mastered, and the usage of sequencer has definitely been adopted. Some synth-generated wind noises go back and forth in the stereo spectrum once in awhile. Believing me, believe you me, you believe me, me you believe or we could dance but unlikely curtains make it difficult of bowls of steam that may or mayor or may. The last 20 or so seconds is a loud crashing sound that goes back and forth fast between the channels. While the rhythm is more low key than, say Tangerine Dream's work of the same period, is has just as much of a hypnotic quality. This piece was completely improvised on the spot and recorded directly to 2-track.
The two 30 minutes pieces are a worthy testimony of both the musical freedom and spontaneity Schulze insufflates is his albums. The list of superlatives to bestow on Schulze is endless, especially so for this defining album Timewind. Each time it's the same thing: all the old tricks he's been using for eons. Recorded after Picture Music, this album is even more electronic sounding than it. The main reason being he has acquired even more synthesizers this time around.
Do yourself a favour, please: do listen to this jewel of true prog music, enjoy yourself, share your comments, and post your review. That was because it was the first of his albums to be released outside of Germany and, thanks in part to the striking, Dali-esque artwork, instantly became a favourite for lovers of both electronic and progressive-minded music, allowing Schulze a platform on which to build a long and successful career spanning over thirty studio albums and forty years worth of intense electronic experimentation. Echoes Of Time 38:42 2. Over-trippy interlacing loops textures weave a superb, meditative and surrealistic landscape. At the end, the sequence is surprisingly accelerated. It was originally released in 1975, and in 2006 was the twenty-second Schulze album reissued by. All others are mentioned in detail in.
This just takes it to the next level. Posted Sunday, July 31, 2011 Review 493829 On Timewind Klaus Schulze had the opportunity to use sequencers for the first time, resulting in a refreshed sound which is dazzlingly ahead of its time. Ditto for the 12-mins+ Solar Wind, another shorter version of Bayreuth. The album cover is one of my favorites. I still think the music is too repetitive and that the songs drag on for way too long, but the two songs are actually quite pleasant in their own right and I won´t rule out the possibility that I might learn to appreciate the album more some time in the future.

My main concern with this piece, though, is not the fact that the music is performed wonderfully, but that the music tends to become over-ambitious and thus from that drag on to the point of massive boredom. Posted Saturday, July 30, 2016 Review 1592873 Timewind is the followup to Picture Music and clearly shows this new synth direction that was already obviously shown on Picture Music. The Klaus Schulze Discography Discography This discography contains all of Klaus Schulze's solo records, as well as most of his musical collaborations with other artists on records. That the album also contained some of Schulze's best music to date certainly helped too, reinforcing his now-undisputed reputation as one of the premier electronic musicians of our time. I think Klaus decided that a bit of humour was needed on this album and he chose to dedicate the album to Wagner, which of course is hilarious as the pompous and bombastic classical composer is completely at odds with the low-key floating and aerial electronic music Klaus was known for at that time. One of the most beautiful pieces of electronic music and the pinnacle of Schulze's output together with his album Mirage.
The atmosphere that Klaus Schulze is able to create on Timewind is fantastic: warm, creepy, alienated, lonely, enigmatic. Wahfried 1883 is a more abstract piece, without any sequencer pulses but with those gorgeously flowing melodies that keep developing endlessly, without ever settling to a fixed tonal centre check Wagner for more theory about the technique. Quite the opposite from modern metal, which looks very dynamic on the outside but is actually perfectly fit for seamless cut and paste jobs. For many years this was his only work available in the United States and was therefore rated higher by American listeners than 1977's or of the following year. Wahnfried is the name of Wagner's home in Bayreuth in the grounds of which he was buried in 1883. An excerpt of the graphic performance score appears on the inside sleeve of the original vinyl version. He was also a founder member of the Berlin-based cosmic-rock group Ash Ra Tempel, again on drums, and was a key component in the creation of their eponymously-titled debut and it's supremely psychedelic follow-up 'Join Inn', alongside another electronic pioneer, the guitar-virtuoso Manuel Gottsching.
