Peter Seiler - Flying Frames (1986)

Totally cheesy, new age-y synth nerdery form German pianist/composer Peter Seiler. Flying Frames is often uptempo -- in a robotic, krautrock-y way -- while elsewhere it's fully ambient -- just gently euphoric washes of arpeggiating, shimmering synths. At least once, it stops just short of Top Gun-theme territory. Would have made an excellent soundtrack for an educational video about aviation or space travel that kids were forced to watch in middle school.

Track listing:
1. Silicon Valley
2. Serengeti
3. Sky Sight
4. Flugansichten
5. Tuya Hikes
6. Grönland
7. Cloudfields
8. Bolero Triste
9. Far East Affairs
10. Tokyo IC Salad
