Editorial Reviews

Klaus Schulze is a visionary. A dreamer. And he is well known for making his dreams come true. For a long time now he has wanted to collaborate with extremely gifted vocalist Lisa Gerrard. Now he made his wish come true. The result is the new double album called Farscape . Never before have you experienced Schulze, whose oeuvre is full of emotionally gripping music, in a more emotional framework. Schulze is an institution, a living legend, he was member of electronic pop icons such as Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel and since 1972 he has released a plethora of solo albums. He has provided remixes for a variety of interesting bands and he has collaborated with a large cast of other tallented and innovative artists. The Moog specialist and confessed Wagner fanatic has been a flickering will-o-the-wisp within the music scene for nearly four decades.

The music is varied, covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres.

I have over a thousand albums I listen to, and this by far is the most compelling blend of musical sculpting I have heard in a very long time.
K. Johnsen
Great album, I am a fan of Klaus Schulze for a long time, ethereal and dreamy, thought provoking and great meditation music.

An exciting collaboration between two visionary artists. Operating in the musical field you could call gothic new age. Beautiful and spiritual and at the same time open to the darker sides of our minds (and the world we live in).

Klaus S. is of course a master sculptor of deep and interesting soundscapes. While Lisa Gerrard quite simply has a stunning voice and a stunning technical mastery of her vocal powers. Sounding at times like a Wagnerian heroine, a Middle East belly dancer or a new age goddess. And the fact that all her vocals are first take improvisations is downright impressive.

The music is varied, covering a wide range of moods and atmospheres. Suited for meditation, fantasy journeys, explorations of inner space.

Essential and profound.

I recently became aware of this release through Amazon's mailings and investigated it due to my love of Lisa Gerrard's music, after hearing her live on her Silver Tree tour a year or so back. I have over a thousand albums I listen to, and this by far is the most compelling blend of musical sculpting I have heard in a very long time. I can't recall a purchase of music recently where I put it on at every chance I can. It enriches the home and the senses, inspiring and transcending.

Schulze and Gerrard together are a perfect mating of musical souls. Kudos to Schulze's new manager for arranging this collaboration for him, as he speaks of in his liner notes. I would love to hear another work done together by them again in the near future. This is a must-have album for any fan of this genre of music.

With this sort of music/vocal improvisation, you either get it or you don't. Two reviewers before me loved it but one hated it - me, I really liked it but wished there was a bit more variety within each track. Lisa Gerrard does a magnificent job improvising against Schulze's dreamy, space-age soundscapes but at times, I found myself waiting for something to happen or for the tempo to pick up, only to be disappointed. Still, it's well worth buying if you're a fan of either artiste.

I knew Klaus Schulze as a brief member of one of my fetish groups, Tangerine Dream. I also knew that he played a a major role in electronic "atmospheric" music. But I must admit that I didn't follow his incredible production over the years (close to 100 albums!).

I liked Lisa Gerrard's Gothic/Gregorian vocal work with Dead Can Dance, so I knew a bit what to expect from this Farscape. And yes, her vocal improvisations over Schulze's ambient music work perfectly well.

There are 7 titles on two CD's called "Liquid Coincidence 1" to "Liquid Coincidence 7" averaging 20 minutes each. As the titles suggests, you kind of get the same atmosphere for two hours, so one could get a little bored after a while. It could even be dangerous if you are driving at night.

But if you take it by smaller doses, Farscape is a very enjoyable experience.

This is my favorite work by Lisa in some time. And to think she simply improvised. Klaus's music is wonderful as well. Not only one sound or atmosphere here - it is at times blissful, at others, dark. It is organic and alive. The marriage of these two amazing talents is completely beautiful and cosmic on a grand scale. And at 2 1/2 hours of music, there is much to enjoy. And to read Lisa's comments in the liner notes where she shares her philosophies about music - well, that is just so inspiring all by itself. She is the truest kind of artist, and such an inspiration. Now, if they would only do more live performances of this album, say in Florida, where I live... (I'll keep dreaming). If you are a fan of either Lisa's or Klaus's (or both), please don't hesitate to pick this up. It is a real treasure.

In which electronic sound wizard Klaus Schulze manages to convince the might Lisa Gerrard to board his musical spaceship and take off with him for parts unknown. And what an astounding voyage! It’s a vast old cosmos out there, filled with achingly beautiful chords, celestial choruses and odd clouds of sound. She sings to the universe about whatever is on her mind, while the spaceship is bleeping and pinging and whooshing and pulsing and chiming merrily along. They hit a little turbulence in Part Four, but manage to maneuver through a dark patch of sound with equal parts bravery and bravado. Part Six is a real tearjerker, where she unburdens about some longing and loss. He gives her a musical shoulder to cry on, but by Part Seven he’s pulling her out of that despondence and back into a sense of wonder.

Definitely, definitely stow away on this voyage!

Being a long time fan of both Klaus Schulze and Dead Can Dance I can say this ablum is truly the best of both worlds.

The first CD is very easy to listen to. Occasionally a little dissonance creeps in to keep things interesting but overall very smooth. Gerrard's Transportive vocals beautifully intertwine with Schulze's lavish soundscapes. It's not fast and frenzied (like a lot of modern electronica) but rather slow, intentional, and immersive.

The Second CD starts off a bit more dissonantly (the first two tracks). That isn't to say they are bad or rough going, but rather challenge the listener just a little bit more. The reward for this challenge comes with the 3rd track (6th overall), which provides a wonderful transition from dissonance into the sublime. Long time Schulze fans will know what this means (think Dune and Sabastian in Traum). It's even more beautiful with Gerrard's haunting and evocative singing, which really takes it to the next level.

This isn't necessarily the kind of album you put on over dinner or when entertaining. Rather, this is the kind of album to put on when you want to be transported. Any attention you give it, will reward you tenfold. A good sound system makes it even more impressive. Enjoy.
