Vangelis 29. März 1943 – † 17. Mai 2022

The dervish has gone. Only a few weeks after Klaus Schulze passed away, my second musical hero Vangelis has died at the age of 79. I will really need time to understand that the most influental persons in my life are no longer here.

I discovered Vangelis at the age of 11 years, when “Aegian Sea” from Aphrodite’s Child was played by a broadcast station in Berlin. Only a little bit time later he began with “Earth” his unbelievable world career. To me Vangelis was a true composer and maybe the best composer I was alowed to listen to and to discover. He was able to express or better to tell a “story” within three minutes, when others needed for the same 30 or more minutes. He was a dervish on all of his instruments and it was allways pure joy to listen to him and to see him playing.

Your music will stay but I miss you Mr. V.

Die Nachrichten könnten kaum trauriger sein. Nach langer, schwerer Krankheit ist Klaus Schulze am 26. April 2022 verstorben.

Klaus Schulze war mein Held. Der, der mich dazu gebracht hat, elektronische Musik zu machen. Er war der einzige, der einen mit seiner Musik zum Fliegen bringen konnte. Er war der einzig wahre kosmische Kurier und ein Bruder im Geiste. Einfach “De Beste Van De Klas”.

Eine kurze Zeit lang sind unsere Wege parallel gelaufen und wir hatten unsere “Momente”. Es waren gute und unvergessliche Momente. Ich vermisse sein jungenhaftes Lachen. Seine Musik wird bleiben.

Ruhe in Frieden Klaus!

The news couldn’t be sadder. After a long, serious illness, Klaus Schulze passed away on April 26, 2022.

Klaus Schulze was my hero. The one that got me into making electronic music. He was the only one who could make you fly with his music. He was the only true cosmic courier and a brother in spirit. Simply “De Beste Van De Klas”.

For a short time our paths ran parallel and we had our “moments”. There were good and unforgettable moments. I miss his boyish laugh. His music will stay.

Rest in peace Klaus!

Bernd Kistenmacher hat den brandneuen  Iridium Keyboard Synthesizer von Waldorf, der erstmlig ein Keyboard mit polyphonem Aftertouch besitzt, für die Online-Plattform Amazona.de ausführlich getestet und ist begeistert.

Zitat:”Würde ich Polyphonic Aftertouch fälschlicherweise mit „PHAT“ abkürzen, träfe es dennoch haargenau meine Einschätzungen bzgl. des gesamten Iridium Keyboard Synthesizers. Exzellent!”
