RIP Klaus Wiese 1942-2009. Dunyā (دُنْيا) - "what is brought near". It refers to the temporal world—and its earthly concerns and possessions—as opposed to the hereafter (ākhirah). In the Qur'an, dunyā and ākhira are sometimes used dichotomously, other times complementarily. The highlight here is most certainly the eponymous piece "Dunya", quite possibly the last extant recording of Klaus' tambura playing. 0:00 Ocean I 5:15 Akhira I 18:53 Ocean II 22:11 Dunya 50:44 Akhira II 1:00:40 Taksim 6216/071 Aquamarin, 1999

Klaus Wiese is a veteran e-musician and minimalist. He was a member of Popol Vuh and has collaborated with Mathias Grassow and Oöphoi. But his real calling is as a sound healer. Uranus is a large-scale atmospheric work that has all of the characteristics of true minimalism except for one - there is no mechanical repetition. The bowls certainly have electronic qualities and trance-inducing textures. Indeed, even simple tasks (like writing) can become difficult under the spell of these magical soundscapes. From a dictionary definition standpoint, this is truly minimalist - there is only one instrument. From a musical standpoint, these are wonderful, meditative, healing atmospheres.
There should be no audio glitches this time, however if there are please let me know - drone music seems particularly susceptible to copying errors. RIP Klaus Wiese.

...and it is, truly so :) enjoy Rest in peace, Klaus Wiese... your music will live on!
RIP Klaus Wiese. Masterpiece of deep drone. Created entirely with singing bowls (with percussion by Ted de Jong on tracks 1 & 2). Some synthesizers were also used in parts I and II, and faint vocals can be heard in all three tracks, performed by an unknown individual (possibly Klaus himself, or they may be old archival recordings ). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maqaam "Maquam" refers to the "stations" a Sufi should seek to pursue in their quest for enlightenment or "God". 0:00 Part I 24:06 Part II 52:22 Part III KW 013, 2004
The sepulchral sounds of fathomless space. Uploaded by request. By far the most minimalistic piece of music Klaus ever recorded. Deep and dark. Enjoy :) This piece is also known as "Omega" and "Ruh". Rest in peace Klaus Wiese. 1942-2009 9783894275501 Aquamarin Music, 2010
