Edgar Froese - Stuntman

   (0 reviews)

For his 1979 album Stuntman Edgar Froese used for the first time digital synthesizers at a time when electronic high tech equipment was still in its infancy, Edgar managed to create a wall of new sounds most people never heard of before. It is the beauty of these sound textures and melodies which makes this record a must for every TD and Edgar Froese fan.

Edgar Froese: "It's the first time I left the acoustics out, and specifically it's a better way for me to record. To record acoustic instruments, it needs somebody else. I didn't want to do that; the things I've done took a long period of time. It's best this way. I'm part of the band, so I can't forget it as soon as I start doing solo works; but it's a different sort of recording process, and also there are a lot of things I can create on my own that I can't do with the band." (Interview with Neumusik, January 1980)
