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