Through his collaboration with Hans Zimmer for the Oscar-winning soundtrack to the remake of the classic film ‘Dune’, desert fever has 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 like ‘Tangerine Dream’ and ‘Ash Ra Tempel’ or in 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 has always remained true to his unmistakable way of creating music and yet always remained open to the new, the innovative, the experimental.
