"I found this on import LP in 1978. He had Stingk and Copeland in his band at one time, but this thing is beautiful. Gregorian Chants. If you like Enigma, get this. Influenced by Himalayan trip? Nice to dream to."
German electronics from 1977 ? music as expected.

"These synthesizer / electric guitar combinations recall mid-70s Tangerine Dream, and much of this music wouldn't be out of place on Stratosfear or Sorcerer. However, Schoener also makes good use of mellotron and choral vocals, hence this record echoes the second half of Peter Baumann's underrated Romance 76. Trance-Formation (cute pun) isn't as satisfying or ground-breaking as those records, and things fall apart somewhat on the title track. Overall, though, the music is moody, melodic (in places), and certainly trance inducing. A pre-Police Andy Summers contributes some fine guitar, including a Gilmour-esque solo on Signs of Emotion that plainly revisits the opening movement of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. Funny how all the Police members backed up Schoener on one or other of his 70s records -- closet prog-rockers, obviously! Fans of TD, Michael Hoenig's Departure From The Northern Wastelands, or even Vangelis around Masque (for the choir) will find something to like here."
