Composer, musician, and producer Klaus Schulze rolled out his extensive sounds, played his legendary sequences, and created his unique "Schulze atmosphere" for more than 50 years until his death just a few months ago. The electronic legend’s posthumous new studio album, Deus Arrakis, is everything that Klaus Schulze had to offer. And more.
Through his collaboration with Hans Zimmer for the Oscar-winning soundtrack to the remake of the classic film Dune, desert fever had broken out again in Klaus Schulze. "I needed more of that 'Spice,'" Schulze recounts. "From there I felt completely unleashed and just played and played... at the end of that second private Dune
journey I realized: Deus Arrakis became another salute to Frank Herbert and to that great gift of life in general."
Since his beginnings in bands Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel, or on his over 50 solo albums from Irrlicht to Mirage, X and Dune to Farscape, Kontinuum, Silhouettes, and now Deus Arrakis, in his productions under the pseudonym Richard Wahnfried or the numerous film scores and collaborations with artists like Arthur Brown, Michael Shrieve, Rainer Bloss, Lisa Gerrard or most recently Hans Zimmer, Klaus Schulze always remained true to his unmistakable way of creating music and always remained open to the new, the innovative, the experimental.
