• NEW REMASTERED CD RELEASE FOR THIS CLASSIC GERMAN AMBIENT / ELECTRONIC ALBUM FROM 1979 BY TANGERINE DREAM MEMBER PETER BAUMANN
• UNAVAILABLE ON CD FOR TWENTY YEARS
• INCLUDES BOOKLET WITH NEW ESSAY
Esoteric Recording’s Reactive label is pleased to announce a newly re-mastered CD release for the seminal German Electronic & Ambient musician Peter Baumann’s 1979 solo album, “Trans Harmonic Nights”.
Peter Baumann came to prominence as a key member of TANGERINE DREAM, joining Edgar Froese and Chris Franke in the group in 1971 and making his debut on the album “Zeit”. His contribution was felt on the classic Tangerine Dream albums released by Virgin Records issued between 1974 & 1976, “Phaedra”, “Rubycon”, “Ricochet” and “Stratosfear”. In 1976 he embarked on a solo career with his classic work “Romance ’76”, a remarkable album that is now held in huge esteem by aficionados of German Electronic Music.
His next work as a solo artist was the equally remarkable and ground-breaking album “Trans Harmonic Nights”, recorded in Berlin between July 1978 and January 1979, a release which pre-empted and influenced the protagonists of synthesiser based music that would burst forth in the 1980s.
Unavailable on CD for over twenty years, this Esoteric Recordings reissue is newly re-mastered and restores the original album artwork and includes a booklet with new essay.
