Atmosphere – Adelbert von Deyen

On this album, von Deyen plays an ARP Odyssey and sequencer, a Micromoog, Farfisa organ and Stringorchestra, as well as electric piano and electric guitar.  I suspect this is highly rated by those of an Tuetonic electronica bent, but I find von Deyen’s focus on mid-range frequencies and tone washes, nevermind an eccentric white noise mix, makes his music quite oppressive. Not an atmosphere one would want to breathe in too much of.

  1. this looks like one of those many records i’ve found over the years with a salivatingly lush kit-list, which turns out to be a bit of a let down. but i’m sure i would’ve bought it too, had i come across it.

  2. Just to add to the review of Adelbert von Deyen’s Atmosphere, I personally think that this album is worth getting for the first track ‘Timemachine’ which has a curiously modern feel in my opinion and doesnt really sound like anything that was around circa 1980…what one imagines a jam between Suicide & Neu! may sound like…having said that I must agree with the original review that some more emphasis on the low and high frequencies would have been welcome

    …and yes I must admit, I am one for German kosmische and weird teutonic beats so in that sense the reviewer is spot on…

    • I think the first track is the best on the album and if von Deyen had gone further down that motorik route, I would have enjoyed it much more.
