Paul Haslinger – Berlin 86-11

Paul Haslinger – Berlin 86-11 (Spotify)

On Paul Haslinger's forthcoming LP Exit Ghost, the Tangerine Dream alumni has put together a solo offering that’s a world removed from the explorations of the seminal electronic outfit, as well as the recent sonic trips of Neuland. It sees him in a more reflective territory, from organic ambient constructions a la Colin Stetson to inward looking piano pieces a la Hauschka. All material emanated from a grand piano, and expanded outward from there.
Exit Ghost is his long thought out opus, a moment caught in time, flicking through reference points, taking an ethereal excursion that permeates musical genres as it becomes awash with intricate sounds and cross-pollinating rhythms. It’s out on new label Artificial Instinct on February 7th, 2020.
