Eberhard Schoener - Bali-Agung

Eberhard Schoener - Bali-Agung
EMI Electrola
Celestial Harmonies (re-issued)

Eberhard Schoener, Pete York, Siegfried Schwab, Prince Agung Raka's Gamelan-Orchestra from Saba and Pinda.

The album ranges from solo Schoener Mellotron/Moog-scapes; the Gamelan Orchestra playing with Schoener adding subtle elctronics; and then tracks where Gamelan Orchestra + Schoener + Schoener's Prog buddies (York + Schwab) unite. Really strange record, but BRILLIANT - if listened to straight through it creates a nice little world of it's own.

Apparently there was a film made for German television of them making this album (please get in touch if you have a link to this!). As well; the entire Balinese gamelan orchestra toured Europe this same year with Schoener and gang.

Where Schoener has attached "Tuned whistles and small bells to the chests of carrier pigeons. The birds were then allowed to fly through the gentle currents of air generated by BMW’s Wind Tunnel."
