Klaus Schulze Turns 63

A Sultan of Synthesizers

63 isn’t a very significant birthday,  but any time we can celebrate the music of Klaus Schulze, we should do it.   Born August 4, 1947, Klaus Schulze remains the John Coltrane of electronic music.   It’s been nearly four decades since his solo debut, Irrlicht, and he continues creating CD length opuses.    His most recent recordings have been one studio and two live discs with Lisa Gerrard.  Coincidentally,  Lisa Gerrard is an Icon of Echoes and will be featured on  Echoes today Weds,  August 4.

Here’s a YouTube video with a vintage live performance from Klaus Schulze circa 1977.
