A superb combination at this live event, held 1991 in Cologne. The two musicians joined their forces to create an outstanding work of Berlin School / rhythm and drum music. 3 long pieces show a good expresion of the evening. Overall, a synth album with plenty of live atmosphere, an attractive and unusual emphasis on live drums, and involving variations from abstract to highly integrated sounds.
Harald Grosskopf was the first drummer and percussionist in the world of electronic music to perform with sequencers. First with Manuel Goettsching's cult space rock band Ashra in the seventies, also drumming for the speed symphonic band Wallenstein and also on Klaus Schulze's classic analog synth albums. He then released seven solo albums. Published on legendary Sky records, "Synthesist" (1980) and "Oceanheart" (1985) figure at the top. In the 90s he started the project Sunya Beat with Axel Heilhecker. He also collaborated with Steve Baltes (computer, keys) for numerous works (N-Tribe …)
…Harald Vogel is an authoritative proponent and guide through all aspects of this music, and the quality of his playing, and of the recordings and choice of instruments can hardly be faulted. Already recognised as interpretations and recordings without equal, certainly in a complete edition, this set has to be considered the current Buxtehude standard bearer.
