Robert Schröder - Harmonic Ascendant (1979)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Robert Schröder - Brain Voyager (1985)

Robert Schröder's first album, and certainly one of his best, Harmonic Ascendant features three haunting, trance-inducing, synth-based compositions colored at times by a bit of piano, cello, guitar, and vocoder. Produced by some dude named Klaus Schulze.

Track listing:
1. Harmonic Ascendant
2. Future Passing By
3. The Day After X

  1. It came (in LP form) with instructions that it could be played at 33 or 45 turntable speed... and they both worked well, the 45 being 'brighter' but not feeling sped-up or false.
