[Groove] E-News 1281 30th April 2022
 
Dear EM fans!!



With a sorrow heart I am writing this E-News. 
Klaus Schulze who still is and always will be one of the biggest influnences in my music passed away this week.

Since 1976 when at the age of 13 I first heard his music (the album Blackdance) I have been mesmerised by the art that he made.  Yes art!!  What he created is beyond music, Toghether with Edgar Froese, Mike Oldfield and Vangelis he formed my music into what it is today. And when I look back it is his music that I tributed the most time during concerts and releases. I can not say that I knew him like I had Edgar Froese. And for years I had the dream to get him to play at an E-Live event that never materialized.

But I had 2 great talks with him, once when I got the chance to buy his Memory Moog. That day Kees Aerts and I collected it in his studio, It will always be rememberd by me. But the meet up with him after a concert he did in the UK where afterwards Joerg Strawe and me sat with him in the hotel bar and had a fantastic night talk was unique. It was early in the morming that we left him and drove back home to mainland Europe. Those 2 meetings will always stay in my thoughts.

Klaus has gone now to the stars and that sucks!!
And that while we are all waiting on the latest release he created for the Epos "Dune" but in the meantime I am playing "X", "Live", "Moondawn", "Mirage", "Body love", "Blackdance" and all the other great albums over and over again. With a heavy heart, with a sad feeling but also with love and a great sense of joy that I got to know, expierience and live in the time that this Maestro created this Art! He will live on in my thoughts and feelings until I am gone. Klaus I love you and your music!.

Mundus in Motu [5:36]

This album was created during the two pandemic years without life performances. The title refers to our changing world, where it seems to be out of control. People are moving around the world to find a save place due to the climate change and wars. this album is dedicated to all that people who lost their homes. Families and friends. Some of the tracks on this album are darker than I usually tend to do. I also use a modular synthesizer which I bought second hand and I was very surprised with the possibilities of this system. Thank you, Rene Chaigneau. Track one was recorded live in a shutdown 680 mW coal fired powerplant, where I used to work for, but due to CO2 rules the plant was closed and I lost my job. Happily, I was asked to assist in the demolition process (my new job). Thank you, Ruud van de Star. I had the possibility to make some live videos there for the Raumzeit II festival. Thank you, Stevan Erbe. Ron Boots and Andre Stooker. It was very special to stand there between thousand’s tons of steel in the main boiler-room (80 meters high) close to the coal grinders and perform music.

Hometown gigs are pretty rare events. I've been working on trying to drum up some more local interest in electronic and experimental music and it paid off with an offer to open for (the very interesting) Leafcutter John at my favourite venue, South Street Arts.

I prepared a set based around my Nord Modular G2, a machine that never fails to impress. Two complex patches define the two main sections of the set - each being mostly made up of extremely hands-on, playable sequencers. A few other devices provide bridge effects and drums in a fairly simple compact rig.

In the week leading up to the gig I played the set through several times, finding the tricky bits and getting a feel for the best tweaks. This recording includes the best of those rehearsals, plus the concert itself. As a result the tracks follow a similar structure and the same sounds will show up in similar places, but the results are two quite different expressions.
