RIP Klaus Schulze (1947 – 2022)

“Tango-Saty” is on the Daily Fingertracks

Klaus Schulze was a German composer and musician, a pioneer in electronic music. Briefly a member of the Krautrock bands Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel, and the Cosmic Jokers he launched a solo career consisting of more than 60 albums.

“Ttransfer Station Blue”, scrub to 3:40 to find the fragment that DJ Harvey has been known to play.

In my universe he is known for such compositions as “Tango-Saty” (1983) and “Transfer Station Blue” (1984).

Angst. Check that film.

He also composed soundtracks for films such as Angst (1983).
