Jorge Reyes - Ek-Tunkul (1983)


Jorge Reyes Valencia is an ambient-electronic music composer from Mexico. He uses electronic sounds together with acoustic folk Mexican to create a psychedelic/tribal atmosphere. In his debut album "Ek-Tunkul" he is also playing an electric guitar (influenced by progressive rock). Very enjoyable album!

Cluster - Konzerte (1972-1977)



The two authorized recordings presented here vividly conjure up the atmosphere, perhaps even the magic, of a Cluster performance back in the day. One took place in 1977 during a science fiction festival in Metz (France). The other dates back to an earlier show in Hamburg's Fabrik venue. Cluster played three gigs in the city in 1971/1972, including the one partially included on "Cluster II".

B. Petrov ‎– Memory, Rock Ballet (1988)


Composed by Boris Petrov who also plays synthesiser together with sound engineer Yuri Bogdanov (of which at least one of the instruments of choice was a SYNTHI-100), this work for the most part is a wondrous example of vintage 1980s Soviet electronica combining glassy space-age ambient, modern classical pop cheese and experimental electro-disco pop in roughly unequal measures. As the titles of the mostly short tracks suggest, this album should be heard in its entirety as a soundtrack to an imagined ballet or similar opus. Preferably one combining various media including film, maybe some live acting and dancing, and one where stage performers and audiences alike can act, dance and sing together.
