  • Berlin School album - "Wasted"

    From the liner notes:

    "I recorded this album twice. It had been quite a while since my previous Berlin School album, so I thought it was time I recorded another one. When it was almost finished, I listened to it and realized it was fake. It hadn't come from an inner need to make music, to express my feelings, it had stemmed from a steril decision. I don't care if my music is good or bad, but it must be honest, and that album wasn't. Even if I had already announced its release, I deleted those recordings, and started all over again, but this time listening to my soul. What you have in your hands is that second recording, the honest one. Maybe it's good, maybe it's bad, but it doesn't matter: this one has a right to exist."

    Enjoy

    It's good...very good. Exemplary 'Berlin School'. If Tangerine Dream ever decided to secretly retire they could subcontract their album output to you and everyone would think they'd rediscovered their mojo ;)
    My new album is available now, here: https://thoughtexperiment.bandcamp.c.../supersymmetry

        Well to be honest Mac, as I type this now, I am listening to Wasted and to be truly honest. I think its a superb piece of music. Very well played and arranged to. Especially how that beautiful appregio drops in at 06:28. But speaking about those deleted recordings, well I have often before today done paintings and then got rid of them.

        I have learned over the years that when I create something and I don't very much feel comfortable with it, well I won't get rid like I used to, instead I will put it to one side and forget, out of sight I suppose really is out of mind. Anyway I then will go back to them at a later time, and I always see them in a whole different light. Like my music, so many unfinished projects, but projects were I have gone back to and immediately felt, hmm. its not so bad now, whereas before I was never really happy with it.

        But yeh m8. A great piece of music and plenty to listen to to.

        Thanks for sharing :tu:

          I think that Edgar Froese finally needs to make a good decision and call you to join TD.

              Yes, I know what you mean and I thank you for saying it However, I do have a folder, which I call "parking lot," where I have enough material for roughly 100 albums, plus about 900 tracks/ideas on cassette tape, plus all my current ideas and projects, and all of them are waiting to be recorded in a definitive form. These were really lifeless and "dishonest," that's why I eliminated them... I don't think they will be missed, just like I felt they were not sincere now, I know I would have felt the same in 10 years...

              I do experience that with films I watch, though. Some of the films I didn't like the first time but something told me I should watch again, later became my favorites Does that happen to you, too?

                    Well I could have a really old sci fi film playing in the background on my television, but I am not really watching it as I am multi-tasking, but the film will serve as a great background feature anyway, especially for when I am working on one of my projects as the films dialogue and sound effects will inspire me to journey elsewhere for that added inspiration for the arrangement I am working on. Like searching youtube. I could be watching a film and think nah this is not much kop but I will leave it playing as its dialogue and sound effects will always immediately grab my attention and then as I keep listening to its sound fx, I will grow to the film, yes I think it would be fair to say that it will end up as a favorite of mine. I do that a lot when I am creating.

                    I once tore up a bunch of paintings I did back in the mid 80s using second hand wallpaper :s

                          Thank you, Delta! I see this album is appreciated - it's still a bit too early for me to listen to it as a listener (it takes me quite a while to detach myself from what I record), so I don't know why people seem to like it, but I'm sure glad they do
