Master of the darker side of early TANGERINE DREAM inspired Berlin School style Electronic Music back with another analog synthesizer masterwork!

Behind the COSMIC GROUND project is Dirk Jan Müller, who has released a number of psychedelic / krautrock / electronic recordings with his band ELECTRIC ORANGE over the past 30 years.

Mainly analogue synthesizers and modular systems, Mellotron, 1960s Farfisa organs, analogue string ensembles from the 70s as well as bass and guitar are used in the COSMIC GROUND. The mostly very dark music is 99% electronic in nature, supplemented by some self-recorded atmospheres from different environments that have been processed electronically.

The 6 tracks on ‘Isolate’ offer a musical spectrum from polyrhythmic sequencer lines combined with real tape echo, ambient and free format atmospheres to polyphonic and multiply modulated drones.
All in the sound is very much of the 1970s. You'll look in vain for preset sounds from digital synthesizers or the prefabricated loops and sequences that are common these days; analog sequencers dominate here!

The cover artwork was created by the French artist Thierry Moreau, known for his work for UNIVERS ZERO, NEUSCHWANSTEIN and HELDON. It underlines the dark mood of the music.

Musician Line-up: Dirk Jan Müller (analog synthesizers / modular systems / Mellotron / Farfisa / string ensembles).
