“Chronicle 1986-1993” is a limited edition, numbered and autographed release by classically trained German synthesist Rüdiger Gleisberg (known as one half of the ambient project Solitaire).
It’s actually a compilation album including released, remixed and previously unreleased music, which was set in motion by ongoing requests for the 1987-music cassette “inZeit-outZeit”. It’s the overall classical style that makes Gleisberg’s instrumental electronic music stand out on it own in its vibrant, fresh style, which features quite a lot of string sections, evoking an emotional sonic environment.
“inZeit-outZeit” and the title song “Chronicle” are by far is the best sections of the album, although I also like the immersive atmosphere created on “Samadhi” (written after experiencing a session in an isolation tank) and the airy, intimate spaces of “Kaschmer”(a compilation of unreleased tracks).
