Klaus Wiese - Dunya [Full album]

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 - The Healing Touch of Tambura [Full album]

RIP Klaus Wiese, 1942-2009 Two lengthy drone works to soothe the torrid soul. "[The] Tanpura is a drone instrument. It resembles a sitar except it has no frets. It has four strings tuned to the tonic. The tanpura is known for its very rich sound. There are three main styles; the Miraj style, the Tanjore style and the small instrumental version sometimes called tamburi. The Miraj style is the typical north Indian tanpura (tambura). This is the favourite of Hindustani musicians. It typically is between 3 to 5 feet in length. It is characterized by a pear shapped, well rounded tabali (resonator face) and non-tapering neck. It usually has a resonator made of a gourd, but rarely one may find resonators made of wood. The Tanjore style of tambura is found in the south. This is the favourite for Carnatic musicians. It is also about 3 to 5 feet in length. Unlike the Miraj style, the neck tapers toward the top, and the front plate is very flat. Resonators are almost always of wood. In recent decades the tamburi or instrumental tambura (tanpura) has become popular. Its most striking characteristic is its size. It averages only about 2 to 3 feet in length. It has a very shallow resonator made of wood and only a slightly curved resonator plate (tabali). It usually has four strings but may just as well have 5, 6, or even more strings. The tamburi's small size means that the playing technique is usually slightly different from the standard tambura. Although the tamburi is generally acknowledged to have an inferior sound, it is the easiest of all the tamburas to maintain. It is extremely portable, it holds its tuning well, and because it is all wood (i.e., no gourds) it is virtually indestructible. These points makes the tamburi very popular with the travelling musician." - Chandra Kantha. 0:00 Synchronicity I 29:32 Synchronicity II Aquamarin, 1991

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

Klaus Wiese - Thanatos I

Klaus Wiese - Thanatos I

While this piece is extremely similar to its side B counterpart, it has its own character. This was perhaps the first Wiese album where synthesizers played a fundamental role in the music - however, in his dexterous hands, they sound far from "dated" or "cheesy". The instrumentation is listed as "keyboards" (no specifications) and "Tibetische klangschalen" (Tibetan singing-bowls). Klaus once again seems to have mixed the two instruments so ingenuously that they appear to be a single unified sound. Brilliant. Requiescat in pace, Herr Wiese. You touched on the primordial, ineffable emotions within us in a way that *very* few others have even attempted to. Thank you. Painting by Kawase Hasui, entitled "Matsushima, Futagojima". Enjoy, and thanks for watching :)
