Synopsis

Album Description
Originally released 1983, Audentity is Klaus Schulze´s double concept piece and 15th opus. This release will have an enhanced booklet, including new liner notes and photos. And, as with other reissues from "The Godfather of Techno", Audentity will include bonus tracks, never before released! Klaus Schulze first attracted attention as a member of the German progressive rock band, Tangerine Dream. Following the release of their debut LP, Electronic Meditation, he departed for a solo career. Klaus' recorded work typically features extended pieces sometimes filling an entire album built around computer-generated synthesizers and other specially programmed electronic effects. Klaus Schulze remains a cult figure in the United States, where the bulk of his prolific output has until now been available only through the import bins. He is widely considered an avant-garde mainstay as well as a founding father of both the new-age space music and electronica genres.

Audentity
Henry E. Schneider | Houston, TX | 08/11/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Audentity features Klaus plus Michael Shrieve (the original drummer with Santana) on percussion, Rainer Bloss sounds and Glockenspeil, and Wolfgang Tiebold cello. The sound is clean, abstract, and somewhat introspective due to the cello. The original release was a double album with a lot of music. On this reissue Klaus re-distributed the tracks, simply so the bonus 58 minute track "Gem" could fit on the second CD. "Gem" was recorded at the same time as Audentity and intended as the score for the Australian horror movie "Next of Kin". The sound is dark, gloomy, and aggressive, but the music was never used in the movie."
A very refreshing record by K Schulze

"First of all, I think it is wise to define for the new listener what music K Schulze does. K Schulze does experimental music, which he s done since the early 70 s w/ guitarist Manuel Gottsching in as hra tempel. Mr Schulze focuses more on keyboards, and other accesories like computers, and different types of keyboards to create the sounds he wants or attempts to achieve.On this double cd, it is done very well. There are 95 minutes of music total on this album. The first disc is a mix of different sorts of sounds. Even I think, sounding like different styles from different parts of the world. There is lots of percussion, and lots of experimental keyboard. To my liking the song Amourage really wins two thumbs up for taking over the identity of this disc (the first one). On disc two, we have to big songs, Spielglocken, & sebastian im traum. Spielglocken is a very cool song (Way nice arrangement throughout). Very enjoyable.The last song Sebastian Im traum is the song that takes the cd away. It is a song that shows you the incredible degree or level of arranging that this man has. Artists like Robert rich come close on this type of music, and succeed in their own offerings and efforts, but Sebastian.. will leave you amazed at the skill that it took to arrange the song and to execute it, to sound like the wrath of god coming at you.Awesome record."
Half Good!

"Klaus's mid period was hurt by his over use of digital beat. Mostly simple thud thud thud beats. On this his third album into digital territory he really should have released a single disc as half of it offers us nothing new just bland thud thud oooo- thud etc.. However for the brave he dropped the beat box for two excellent classical inspired tracks. On disc one, Amourage 10:37 min and on disc two Sebastian im traum at 28:21 min. If you can wade through the sometimes painful {stuff} around them they are worth owning."
