ISDN sleeve art

Came across this and thought I'd share. From the Gal Vihara rock temple in Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka. As depicted in the sleeve art from ISDN.

Re: Synthi-A - Ignition of the Sun - out 4th March

Nice. For those curious the cover artwork is by the Renaissance painter Michael Pacher, "Saint Wolfgang and the Devil". Probably an homage to the Urs Amman artwork on Schulze's Timewind.

Re: Klaus Schulze

Nomi was a genius of 80's new wave along with Frank Tovey/Fad Gadget, but that's for another thread. We haven't even got to Schulze's 80's works.

Re: Klaus Schulze

His approach is a little different from TD's. He doesn't really have the same sensibilities in terms of exploring timbre or ever-shifting synth manipulations in his sequences like TD did. It places you more in a trance. If you like more variation, you'll probably like his next album "X" a lot more.

Re: Klaus Schulze

Mirage is his best. Yes, I'm going to go with that. Irrlicht blows me away too. He did some recent-ish stuff with Lisa Gerrard that's worth checking out. Also be sure not to neglect his aliases, especially Richard Wahnfried and the records he did with Din A Testbild.

Re: First FSOL track you heard

Probably seeing the video for Cascade from a compilation of music videos on VHS that one of my older sisters had. Might have been earlier. I do remember hearing PNG in that crap Who Framed Roger Rabbit rip-off Cool World from 1992, but I think my awareness of FSOL was in the background prior to abou...

Re: RIP Edgar Froese

Indications are that it is the real Peter Baumann making these statements. I don't think Peter had creative control over what was going on during the (ahem, weaker) Haslinger/Froese years. He just agreed to put out there stuff on his label. Don't expect Chris Franke anytime soon, although Schmoellin...

Re: New-old Aphex tracks

Hehe! Richard posted a message on one of the Soundcloud tracks that anyone who guesses samples wins a prize and I nailed it. Waiting to see if he replies.

Re: Pande-reviews: 2007.4 (Heads / Part-Sub-Merged / Polemic

Do we have an explanation for why the Twitch recordings haven't become available on FSOLdigital? Are they locked up by the label they were working with at the time? From interviews it sounds like they were heavily influenced by Chakk and Cabaret Voltaire at this time. Be interesting to hear these.

Re: A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble – The Wizards Of Oz

Very nice. I'm curious as to what New Zealand psych bands they unearthed. Cybotron are very good. I discovered them by accident looking for Juan Atkins' Cybotron back in the early naughties. Very Berlin-school / Hawkwind-ish.

Re: Humanoid - Forthcoming album

I'm excited about this one. Brian dusting off the ol' 303 for some more industrial acid madness. The beat at the beginning sounds like Chicago footwork.
