Rüdiger Gleisberg – Baktun
CD, Musique Intemporelle, 1993


“Baktun” by German synthesist Rüdiger Gleisberg musically follows a classical approach. Here, Gleisberg displays a nice range of dynamic, overall creative sonic creations that mix classic strings and orchestrations with percussion, plus occassionally some ethnic elements.

The music is vibrant and expressive, a kind of modern symphonies in a nutshell in which distinct senses of minimalism, yearning and timelessness are apparent. “In my dream I saw her…” is a Philip Glass-like spherical composition, while “Imagination and Tears” is an emotional piece with a beautiful complimenting e-guitar solo.
The elevating and mysterious 9-minute “Initation Ceremony” though is the real highlight for me, an impressive sonic journey that explains why his collaboration later on with Elmar Schulte as Solitaire became something most interesting.

Since then, Rüdigers symphonic impressionism is and has remained something special in the electronic music scene. “Baktun” is prove of that.
