DIETER SCHUTZ 

VOYAGE

RARE 1986 CD  LLSCD 3100  / LIFESTYLE  / US 

 

On VOYAGE, DIETER SCHUTZ introduces different landscapes of our planet. In recent years he has experimented with painting pictures with sound. 

 

Dieter Schutz, a multi-instrumentalist, creates a connection between the acoustic and electronic, incorporating very lively percussion which stimulates the intellect as well as the emotions.

 

 

The album starts off with the very rhythmic "Amazona," which is performed without electronics, bringing to mind wild and natural jungle scenery. "In Dreams" is basically electronic territory.

"Bizarre" and "Fireland" introduce quiet landscapes. "Above," with a rather funky emphasis, follows. 

 

Next we hear the rhythmical "Voyage," which is a journey through moving landscapes. On "Exotic Nights" there is a threatening jungle atmosphere. It is counter balanced by "Little Plant," a soft, soothing piece which evokes the image of a small plant in the middle of an unrealistic desert landscape. "The Coast," a homogeneous mosaic of different sounds, brings us back to Schutz’s electronic roots. The last piece, "Back Home," consists mostly of acoustic instruments, giving a very balanced impression. 

 

Altogether there is a sensation of warmth-a successful synthesis of electronic and acoustic elements.

SERGE BLENNER 

LA DIMENSION PROCHAINE

RARE 1986 CD   SKY CD 3101  / LIFESTYLE  /  US

 

This is the debut CD to the USA on the Lifestyle Label. 1986!

 

This is the album that introduced me to the music of Serge Blenner. I've never heard a duck call as an instrument -but it works so well in the first track

 

Serge Blenner has composed and released an impressive number of albums 17 in 28 years, to be exact.

 

Like a true artist he has never really been concerned about commercial success or popularity. That’s why, despite his considerable base of loyal    fans and customers (who live as far away as in Sydney, Tokyo, and Minneapolis), hardly anyone knows anything about the life and work of Serge Blenner in the country he has chosen to call home, Germany. 

 

This may be because Blenner’s music isn’t easy to categorize as any particular genre. 

 

1. Euroville      4´10   

2. Palabre d´A      4´22      

3. Communication D      3´41   

4. Dimension      5´56   

5. Publicitaire      4´00   

6. Micro-Rêve      4´14  

7. Pour Séduire      4´15   

8. Intemporelle      5´16   

Total Time:      35´56 

 

 

THILO VON WESTERNHAGEN  

PLEASURELAND  

RARE 1986 CD    LSCD 3102 / LIFESTYLE  / US 

 

 "PLEASURELAND," a unique album featuring an unprecedented synthesis of jazz and classical styles. As on previous albums, Thilo von Westernhagen utilizes the talent of Herb Geller, one of Europe’s leading jazz saxophonists.

 

The music on "PLEASURELAND" is not classical, it is not jazz: it cannot be pigeonholed into a particular category. What can be said is that the music is contemporary, progressive, instrumental; the writing and musicianship are superb. Listening to "PLEASURELAND" is, simply, a pleasure.

2   Childwife  4:16  

3   Where Is Your Watermelon ?  2:44  

4   Una Isola Muy Hermosa  3:42

LATITUDE   

RARE 1986 CD   LSCD CD 3104  / LIFESTYLE  /  US

 

Creating a new sound which both Craig Peyton and Benjamin Verdery agree is "magic." A certain synergy is evident in the memorable textures and subtle rhythms of synthesizer and classical guitar. 

 

Says Craig, "Ben’s formed his whole career around melody and I’ve done the same with rhythm tracks." It is this unique perspective of each musician that makes LATITUDE truly special.

MIC HOLWIN   

STARING TO REMEMBER

RARE 1987 CD   LSCD CD 3105 / LIFESTYLE  /  US  

 

Lifestyle Records – a short lived 1980's label devoted to bringing Europe’s finest new music to the US.

 

MIC HOLWIN is an artist who views her work with micro-computer controlled synthesizers as visual music, influenced by film, video and television. Each song is a cinematic work that carries the listener to other places, even though each piece is only a few minutes long. Thirteen of these pieces are heard here on Holwin’s début album STARTING TO REMEMBER.

 

STARTING TO REMEMBER is channeled, focused energy."

TRI ATMA KA 

JAKEE MUSIC   

RARE 1987 CD   LSCD CD 3106 / LIFESTYLE  /  US 

 

TRI ATMA's fifth LP since 1978

 

Music without a philosophical background for a pleasant ambience. Music for the soul and for the body.

 

TRI ATMA has outlasted the seventies’ Disco Wave, New Wave, New German Wave and the Anglo-Saxon pop of the 1980’s. The group cannot even be tied down to New Age Music, although admittedly original elements of this music direction can be discerned in its style; this is precisely why the supporters of this music trend, which has recently become so popular, are among its most loyal supporters.

Lifestyle Records – a short lived 1980's label devoted to bringing Europe’s finest new music to the US.

 

KRISTIAN SCHULTZE — Cybernetic creativity

 

METRONOMICS – handmade and programmed music Metronome (Greek) = an instrument designed to mark exact time by a regularly repeated tick. 

 

What people see on the cover is an ancient metronome, set in an archaic surrealistic scene, with flowers and musical notes—a symbol of that which is conventional in Schultze's music, of the sheer joy of music—making, and for the soul of techno—pops? The many non—programmed solos alone show that in this respect things do not necessarily have to move with technocratic smoothness.
