John Elliott (Emeralds, Outer Space) has just made a return visit to Perth and played an intimate set at the Velvet Lounge. His beautiful epic synth sounds are from the present but reference the past with a key reference point being Tangerine Dream.
Klaus Schulze is the legendary creator of keyboard based electronic music. His incredible soundscapes as both a solo artist and as a member of groups including Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel are musically unsurpassed, as his influence today on young electronic artists.
Lisa Gerrard is the Australian singer and composer who rose to prominence for her ethereal vocal work during the 80s in the group Dead Can Dance. In 2008 Klaus Shultze performed live with Lisa Goddard. As a live performance this is simply stunning. The HD sound, the multi-camera work, and the intimacy captured means that every key touch and oscillator adjustment that Klaus makes to his incredible on stage setup is both heard and seen – yes its a cliché but you are there with him!!!
It was recorded during the ‘Night Of The Prog Festival III’ at Loreley on the 18th July 2008. Enjoy the first 40 minute build up, enjoy the breathtaking vocals of Lisa Gerrard and enjoy the amazing solos on a variety of keyboards including a dusty old vintagec Moog.
This is nearly two hours but every second is amazing – give yourself a treat. You absolutely need to watch it – in full screen – and with headphones on – or else with a very loud quadrophonic speaker system like the one at Golden Apples HQ.
