This is excellent news for sure. A true master of ambient music IMO.

Fantastic news about the music of Klaus Wiese, which had a huge impact on many Ambient Artists (Oophoi, Mathias Grassow, Tomas Weiss and a great number of others) and listeners who are into professional and personal "musical therapy" worldwide.
Those are pretty interesting synths. I've been interested in the Folktek devices, http://folktek.com/ ,but they are kind of pricey. The Electric Lobotomy stuff is a lot more affordable. I may have to look into these more.
I think these synths are a lot of fun, some reverb would do some serious drones!
Thanks for posting.

Super interesting album from Glacial Movements. It combines three things I love: isolationist ambiance, field recordings, and Geiger counter-like clicks and static. This is a true stand-out album; the last track in particular, Home Port, is a jewel.
Currently checking out...... Castleview- Oceanscape . Dark, deep and interesting.
I can understand bringing back the vinyl record format, simply because so many people claim that vinyl has a fuller sound, with higher frequencies and lower lows. I'd love to hear feedback from forum members here who hold that view. But what I don't understand is... WHY DID THEY RESURRECT THE CASSETTE TAPE? In my opinion, it's a very flawed format that I was glad to see dead and buried. Does anyone else remember painstakingly rewinding, by hand, the cassette tapes that had been "eaten" by your cassette player? You seemingly had miles of tape to wind back in without tangling it up. Sometimes you were successful, but the tape never sounded quite the same because of the wrinkles that occurred during the rewinding. Grrrr... and back then I was a real stoner, and rewinding the tape was a real buzz-kill.
What's next? Re-introducing the 8-track tape?
