I'm going to reserve judgement on this as I don't know the full story as to why you keep bringing this up.
The full story is the orginal DAT tapes that Klaus did leave behind was given to ONE person he did trust, . . . . . .
That's not the full story I am interested in, you've already "shared" that with us. I want to know why you keep bringing it up? If this "other" person is not you, then why do you care so much? Also, I find it a bit two-faced that you find it horrible that someone is doing this collaboration with a person that is gone. But you find it perfectly fine to download other peoples music and not pay them for it. Both really are about control over the music. It seems to me that you care for the artist more when they are dead then when they are alive.
The news is that Tomas is starting to release collaboration albums with a dead person it is like pissing on a persons grave if you ask me.
It is not even a real collaboration if the other person have not even heard it, it is fake collaboration and people who visit have website and are not aware willl have no idea about it, I want get the truth out and warn people do not buy these fake collaborations albums.
release original untoched tapes is ong with but taking his material using it for his own releases only to make the album more sellable because of a big name is on the cd and their is klaus wiese collectors who want to buy every cd cause they want to have a complete collection.
I care more about Klaus now when he is dead for the simple reason since he is dead he cannot defend himself, I am a long time fan of klaus Wiese, I have heard him first time in 2006, this is my motivation to honor him and make sure not people is making profits on releasing fake collaboration albums like these.
It is about respect thomas shows no respect when releasing collaboration albums with a dead, there is not even one word in the cd description about that he is dead or RIP or anything, it looks like a "normal" release or is klaus still alive maybe ? as I said not every one knows he is dead not all fans are hardcore like that to read about the full story, and even if he only sell 100 copies is still earn about 2400 USD for just one release and considering the nature of ambient music where it is easy to release many albums per month it is kind of clear that he earn a lot of money for this especially considering he take all money himself, that is another good thing to release collab albums with a dead person you do not need split the income, it is a brilliant idea I admit tomas.
THe source that I do not name have already named on his website, that he will not be part of any public debate but that every one is welcome to send him and email and talk to him privately, this is exactly what I did, and considering the history and the the source and klaus has been working for over 20 years it is really easy to take side and choose which person, anyone who is interested I can send a PM with a link which include where to ask to source yourself.
Now When Klaus is dead I think it is important that some one who taking his side and stand up for him
