Ken Martin has been composing & playing electronic music for 40 years. He's developed his own unique blend of Berlin school & space music that hearkens back to the golden age of instrumental synth music. "Berlin Impressions" is a tribute to the early Berlin electronic music scene - gone are the days of analog production - this CD is a homage to the old electronic sounds created with the latest technology.
This is a recording of the live concert held at Burg Herzberg Krautrock/Hippie festival from 7/15/99. A kind of Woodstock in Germany with a lot of bands. Sounding from psychedelic rock to berlin school electronic. Release features one track each from seven different artists that played at the festival.

Tunes here from Sunya Beat, Edgar Broughton, Caravan and Might As Well are so-so.
