Cosmic Hoffmann – Hypernova
CD-R, Private Release, 2009

“Hypernova” offers another bunch of restored tracks from the old days, coming from the music archives of Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock.

The nine pieces (partly inspired by Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and NEU) on this third instalment of vintage rarities of the ‘70s & 80s feature the usual analogue suspects (mellotron, minimoog, Roland M 100, tape-drives echo devices) as heard on the previous two volumes, all played spontaneously.
I especially like the atmospheric, free form pieces here, such as the emotional “Requiem for a dying Star” with very nicely rendered mellotron textures or the cinematic “Alienapolis” with its dark, psychedelic edges.

It seems the sound of retro music is here to stay, so all those who care for another healthy dose of vintage electronics with a space theme: this one’s for you.
