Klaus Wiese

Here are listed the 50 albums presented on Klaus's website that at May 2020 is still extant. For how long who knows? Discogs and YouTube are good places to look for more information, and more of his prodigious output. Bandcamp has his work listed. Discogs has a Reviews posting thread that goes into some depth on a seeming controversy over Wiese's unpublished work, some of which appeared a number of years after his death. Someone called Lev Levin has researched using software to attempt to identify likelihood of authorship. It all makes a lot of sense. Weiese was so prolific that there would inevitably have been a huge volume of out-takes, part complete works. I came across Wiese's music link hopping in YouTube. 'Ommayads' on the Umbra Label KW011 (2004)in CDr format is not listed below. I was able to track down some Klaus Wiese at cue-records. I can sympathise with Wiese in how to move a work from a series of fragmented ideas and takes into a completed rounded end work, often in the face of failing unpredictable technology and uncertain collaboration commitment. Wiese has taken that fragmentation a step further than most, combining volume of output with a bewildering spectrum of here today gone tomorrow publishers leaving an uncertain legacy that is elusive to track down. I pity the executor of his creative estate. Bandcamp carries remasters, previously unreleased material etc curated, it seems, by one Sanjay Nadeem in India via the Arc Music label (can't find a website, other than Bandcamp). Utterly bewildering.

Inc., Randalstown, MD 21133 USA Phone 1.800.Triloca KLAUS WIESE Mystic Landscapes presents hermetic trance music is a combination of the space-sound of Tibetan singing bowls, the ney flute and the sponateous rhythm of the Indian drum, the table. This music goes back to the roots of tribal ritual music, where spirit and earth are still one. Mystic Landscape are the forgotten landscapes of our own psyche: awesome, uncharted and radiating with the power of silence. Tibetan singing bowls, ney flute, tabla."
