Waveshape - Zyklus (1995)

Propulsive synth-worlds, made by a coupla Germans of course, for floating around in outer space. According to the liner notes, Zyklus actually includes recordings of a neutron-star near Cassiopeia. Reminds me a bit of Klaus Schulze, circa Moondawn. Getting this one took all of my internet music nerd powers, so y'all better enjoy it!

Track listing:
1. Impuls
2. Aura
3. Amplituden
4. Interval
5. Zwischenraum
6. Zenith
7. Intermezzo
8. Abendstern
9. Stellar
10. Zwischenzeit
11. Magma
12. Puls

Every atom of our planet and body is a last proof of a dead star

More synthesizers in outer space:

Software - Chip-Meditation (1985) +
Electronic-Universe I (1987)
Michael Stearns -
Encounter (1988)


  1. yep, I'm hearing the Schulze... this is another really good 'un. Many thanks for tracking it down.

  2. Hey when you mentioned about the actual space recordings, it made me think of Arecibo? Have you heard that? It's actual space recordings mixed with lustmordish dark ambient (lustmord side project)

  3. fantastic album..... better than schulze imo....... in the same way that hoeing's "departure" or much of Schroeder's early work are better than any schulze...
    I think Schulze is a master of the technology but not a great composer...
