The monolithic, comprehensive box set Electro Violet collects nearly everything German composer Irmin Schmidt has released outside of his work with pioneering Krautrock group Can, including solo and collaborative albums, several volumes of recordings taken from his film, television, and theatrical scores, and even an opera.
Unlike Can's recordings, which were typically edited down from lengthy, all-night improvisations, Schmidt kept a regular, daytime studio schedule in order to compose his own work. His two best-known solo albums, 's Musk at Dusk and 's Impossible Holidays, both feature contributions from Can's drummer Jaki Liebezeit and guitarist Michael Karoli, and while the familiar Can groove is certainly present, the albums sound much sleeker and almost loungey, featuring lush instrumentation draped with strings and Shudder Of Love - Irmin Schmidt - Impossible Holidays + Musk At Duskand tinges of reggae and other tropical rhythms.
The album Toy Planet, a collaboration with Swiss musician Bruno Spoerri, is as playful and imaginative as its title suggests, ranging from proto-techno "Two Dolphins Go Dancing" to the trainbound ambient journey "Rapido de Noir. The English-sung opera, which took six years to compose and premiered inblends operatic and choral vocals, synthesizers, samples, and a collage of non-musical sounds and noises such as breaking plates and rolling pebbles, which are seamlessly incorporated into the compositions.
Schmidt co-produced the opera with Jono Podmore, a British electronic musician who records drum'n'bass and trip-hop under the name Kumo, and his addition of thumping techno beats and smashing jungle breaks to operatic vocals sounds jarring and bizarre, but thrilling.
The duo followed the opera with 's beat-heavy Masters of Confusion, which featured a similar sense of playfulness and theatricality while lacking the full-scale opera production, and 's darker, more experimental Axolotl Eyes.
The remainder of the box set is devoted to six discs of songs taken Shudder Of Love - Irmin Schmidt - Impossible Holidays + Musk At Dusk the dozens of film and television scores and plays that Schmidt has composed since the late '70s. The pieces range from graceful, intimate, atmospheric pieces to lush smooth-pop songs reminiscent of his solo albums, with a few silly moments such as "Zombie Mama" thrown in. The earliest recordings, recorded after Can's late-'70s breakup and originally released on Schmidt's first two Filmmusik LPs during the early '80s, come closest to that band's sound, particularly on tracks like the funky title theme to "Endstation Freiheit" and "Decision.
The massive box set is a lot to digest, but it's an astonishing body of work, and well worth devoting time toward. Lied vom Verschwinden. Unheimliche Entdeckung. Silbergraue Augen.

Early on, his approach and his output-- intricately polyrhythmic, meticulously crafted "hypermodern jazz" tracks full of shimmering vibraphones and cheeky Latin percussion-- often found him branded as an ironist.
To say that "Fuck Back", the record's lead cut, is a postmodern take on Afrobeat is hardly to deny its ferocity: no matter how many steps removed from the source, urgency remains coded in the music's DNA.
Indeed, it's in the collaborative work that Friedman has really dug into the groove, particularly on his two records with Liebezeit: both volumes of Secret Rhythms offer an approach to polyrhythm rarely heard in electronic music. By slowing everything down, the two amplify the wiggle room, leaving more space for drum hits to bounce beyond the strictures of quantization, allowing for rhythms that restore liquidity to the idea of pulse.
After 's sublime Heaps Dub-- in which the jazz quartet Root 70 performed acoustic versions of Friedman and Flanger classics that Friedman, in turn, remixed into 10 tracks of exactly five minutes apiece, a sort of dub of a dub of a dub-- Friedman, aided by an expanded cast of characters, returns with a far more conventional album. Formally, it's Shudder Of Love - Irmin Schmidt - Impossible Holidays + Musk At Dusk the most conventional of his career: these aren't krautrock jams or ambient dub meditations or electro-cumbia dustups, they're proper songs fronted by a rotating crew of vocalists.
All of them dusky, throaty singers, they give First Night an unmistakably late-night vibe. The closest reference point might be to the acoustic-guitars-and-edits approach to soul practiced by His Name Is Alive on 's Someday My Blues Will Cover the Earth, which might not be as surprising as it first seems: Friedman actually covered "Someday" on Can't Cool, and he also remixed H.
Timbre and voicing play a central role, because these songs hardly live and die by their chord changes: propelled by scraggly guitar figures and dub's ruminative bass lines, they remain classically minimalist in spirit, splitting the difference between Steve Reich and Roy Ayers' RAMP or Philip Glass and Tony Allen.
What makes even the most static of the songs so engaging is the way they seem to shimmer in place, as diverse lines of winds, strings, guitar, accordion, synthesizers and effects weave porous webs. If true, it's one hell of a percussive coup; for all their understatement, these are among the most sophisticated beats Friedman's ever come up with.
Like virtually everything on the album, they never call attention to their own virtuosity. The whole record, in fact, has been put together so subtly that at first it may fail to stick.
But somehow I kept coming back to the album; where most records on my review-assignments list find their way back to the shelves, this one crept into regular rotation in those rare slots I listen to music for pleasure: morning coffee, cooking dinner, the bedtime wind-down. Such domestically functionalist music often gets the short end of the critical stick; 30 years after Music for Airports, we still have an innate distrust of music as wallpaper.
First Night Forever's trick is that it functions on two levels at once: behind that calming, rippling, jazzy veneer there are strange forces at work, peeling back the wallpaper to reveal a passageway to points unknown.

The productions themselves are the real stars here though, Friedman's multi-layered studio excursions sewing together detailed drum edits, You Oughta Know - Alanis Morissette - Live Philadelphia 2012 (DVD) horn sections and even the odd burst of strings when needed. There are some very peculiar moments on the album though, most of which come on tracks lent vocals by Theo Altenberg, an artist whose roots lie in the Berlin commune scene of the '70s.

Her father, Allan Block, ran a sandal shop in Greenwich Village in the s, and the constant presence of members of the Greenwich Village folk music scene made an impression on the young girl, who studied classical guitar.

The other ten songs on the album consist of long, heavy guitar-filled runs that surround obscure lyrics, sometimes sounding like modern psychedelia.
Some of the songs, like "The Vanilla Queen" and "Mad Love's Comin'" harbor a distinguishable progressive edge, thanks to woven keyboard and guitar interplay. A mild blues and rock feel creep into such tunes as "Candy's Going Bad" and "Lost and Found" but fail to ignite any type of serious musical flare compared to their two singles.

Top Ten, and U. The group toured America opening for the Doobie Brothers and Santana, but the lack of a follow-up ensured that their popularity remained short-lived in America, even though they remained a top draw in Europe over the rest of the s.

March 13th and 14th Golden Earring celebrates its comeback in the UK with concerts in London and Ipswich after the upcoming release of their latest studio-album. Originally called The Tornados, the name was changed to Golden Earrings when they discovered that The Tornados was already in use by another group.
The name Golden Earrings was taken from a song, originally sung by Marlene Dietrich in and a hit for Peggy Lee inwith which they opened their concerts.

This was followed by a successful psychedelic album Eight Miles High, which featured an eighteen-minute version of the title track, itself a cover of the hit song by The Byrds.
