An excellent duo
Phil Derby / Electroambient Space
Peter Mergener of Software and Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock of Mind Over Matter and Cosmic Hoffmann have teamed up to bring us Visions of Asia, a very successful blending of their extensive musical backgrounds. The result is similar to Klaus recordings as Mind Over Matter, with a more Western touch in the form of easy going melodies and steady rhythms.
Cinnamon” plays like part Asian and part pop music

The second of the new releases unites Klaus with another legendary musician of electronic music, Peter Mergener. Multi-instrumentalist Peter, who has released more than thirty albums, was the one who in 1986 advised IC label manager Michael Weisser to sign Klaus. In 1987 IC released MoMs Music for Paradise, the first of a series of breathtaking albums full of electric guitar, Mellotron and sitar. The rest is e-music history. We have every reason to be grateful to Peter.On only a few occasions Klaus and Peter worked together: Peter played keyboards on Spacelab (on the 1990 MoM album Trance n Dance) and Klaus added guitar to Peters track Wildlife (on his 1994 album Let There Be More Light). But now a full album is released under the title Visions of Asia. It consists of seven basic tracks composed by Peter that were spiced up with an Asiatic flavor” by Klaus. The result of this very interesting experiment is a fine album that I can recommend to lovers of e-music everywhere.

Peter Mergener and Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock are two pioneers of the German EM. In 1989 Mergener, then member of SOFTWARE with Michael Weisser, participated on MIND OVER MATTERs third opus Trance n Dance”. Since then they collaborated on several musical projects. Knowing Klaus immense passion for the Asian culture
Die beiden Musiker Peter Mergener und Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock sind bereits feste Gren in der elektronischen Musik. Peter hat solo eine ganze Reihe Alben verffentlicht und war lange Zeit der kreative Pol in dem Projekt Software, whrend Klaus mit seinem Bandprojekt Mind Over Matter sowie als Cosmic Hoffmann vielbeachtete Verffentlichungen herausbrachte. Beide haben eine groe Anhngerschaft in der Szene und bringen nun mit Visions Of Asia ihre erste gemeinsame Produktion heraus.Ich war sehr gespannt, was die beiden da gemeinsam entwickelt haben, doch schon beim Hren der ersten Titel hatte ich eher das Gefhl, dass hier Stcke der beiden kombiniert wurden.
