Peter Baumann - Machines Of Desire Album Review
Tangs man Peter Baumann returns with an urgent yet thoughtful new work.
From 1971 to 1977, Peter Baumann was part of what many consider to be Tangerine Dream’s definitive line-up, contributing to classics such as Phaedra, Rubycon and Ricochet.
Although he continued to record for several years thereafter, much of his subsequent activity has revolved around socio-political realms and the world of think tanks and foundations. In fact, Machines Of Desire is his first full album since 1983’s Strangers In The Night. The decision to return to music seems to have hit Baumann like the proverbial lightning bolt, a suddenness reflected in the album’s dual sense of urgency and homogeneity.
