Synopsis

Album Description
The surge of interest in world music has brought to light the important contributions of German multi-instrumentalist, Deuter. In the 1970s, this innovative artist helped to set the tone for a warm, highly accessible approach to music from other cultures. Few albums illustrate this more profoundly than Deuter's 1979 release, Ecstasy.Ecstasy is one of several pivotal albums that Deuter recorded as a result of his studies in India during the mid 1970s. There he took up residence in an ashram, probing deeply into Indian music, and completed many compositions that he had begun in Germany. In mixing Eastern and Western textures with engaging, uplifting melodies, Deuter found an appropriate balance for his spiritual ideals. With soaring flutes, rich synthesizer textures, resonant guitars, spiraling sequencer patterns, and delicate percussion, he created a sense of exhilaration and joy matched by few artists. The music on Ecstasy truly lives up to its name.

Great new music!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have never been introduced to Deuter's talents before today---the music is some of the best I have ever heard--it is so beautiful and different, I will definitely be ordering cd's today---and introducing all my friends and family to his music---thanks for the great selection!

An incredibly energetically uplifting album
H. Friedman | Berkeley, CA | 09/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have several of Deuter's cds, and this is one of my favorites. It definitely has the right name, as it energetically lifts you up to a very high state of consciousness.

The album flows wonderfully from one cut to the next, each section fitting perfectly with the last.

If you like Deuter, find this cd. It's a must have."
Psychedelic Osho new age
Bodhi Heeren | Copenhagen | 08/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is certainly Deuter as his mind-expanding best. Like his other albums from the seventies the music is very similar to the music he made for Osho's meditations, weird, inventive and obvious coming from a space far beyond the ordinary mind. In fact it's said that most of the music was channeled to Deuter from Osho (Deuter living in his ashram in Poona at this time of his life).

I like his later more slick and polished new age productions, but this music represents the highlight of his career. Strange, beautiful and pointing directly to the Beyond."
