      lt was probably recorded in 1972 or 73 and what you hear is mostly the heavy sound of Klaus' old electric Teisco organ to which he added some strange sounds. More of these strange sounds he used on "Electric Love-Affair".

      Is it wrong if I state that Klaus was the first who dared to use noise (as in "Electric Love- Affair": a lot of noise and buzz) as stylistic device? The four tracks "Nightwind", "Minuet", "Signs of Dawn", and "Land der leeren Hauser" are from a collaboration in the year 1973 between Klaus and a friend at this time, Hans-Jorg Stahlschmidt. These titles were played and recorded at 'delta acustic" studio in 1973. The proposed group name for Klaus' and Hans- Jorgs collaboration changed between "Tau", "Tao", and "Timewind" (!) Also, a deal with a German record company had already been made, but for reasons unknown today, the album never came out. The music sounds like early 'New Age', but of course this definition wasn't known then. Klaus very own keyboard playing style is already identifiable. Klaus mostly plays the organ, and both played also guitars and bass guitar. The whispering voice on "Signs of Dawn" is Klaus. The singing voice on "Land der leeren Hauser" is not Klaus. The three shorter titles are the original titles as given on the tape box. In 1973, same more "avant-garde" music was done by Klaus, for the radio play "Das Grobe ldentifikationsspiel (The Big Garne of ldentification)", a Science- Fiction thriller by Alfred Behrens, it won the award: "Preis der Kriegsblinden Deutschlands", and since then it has been regularly repeated on German radio. The tape box says: "Ballett Titanensee", and it dates from about 1973.
