Klaus Schonning - Lydglimt (1979)

Klaus Schønning was born in 1954 in Denmark and started his musical career as a street musician in Copenhagen earning money to record his first album in 1979 called “Lydglimt” (Glimpses of Sound), one of the first albums released with new age music, even before New Age music became an established international genre. To be honest this album doesnt sound "new age" to my ears. This is more like a mixture of space-krautrock and melodic synthesizer music. Almost like a soundtrack to a 70s cult movie! One of my favourite synthesizer albums!

Get it while you can...
