From 1971 to 1977 Peter Baumann was a member of the legendary German band Tangerine Dream, the inventors of the electronic music genre "Berlin School". He produced many seminal records in his Paragon studio (e.g. Conrad Schnitzler, Cluster, Hans-Joachim Roedelius) and released several successful solo albums.
Peter Baumann: 'Machines of Desire is filled with many influences, not least of them, my time with Tangerine Dream. Recording this album has been a very rich experience that fulfilled my creative desires, with more to come. I'm delighted that German record label Bureau B will release the recording in May/June of this year.'
"Machines Of Desire slowly seeps into your skin and then makes you realise just how much we have missed his compositional work in the intervening years." (freq.org.uk)
"Old fans of Tangerine Dream and European electronic music will find much to delight in here .New listeners will be introduced to an album of moody inventiveness from a master of the genre." (pennyblackmusic.co.uk)
"Man kann darin versinken und sich wohl fühlen." (depechemode.de)
"Fans des klassischen Tangerine-Dream-Sounds werden ihre wahre Freude daran haben. MOD klingt fast wie eine Fortsetzung der Alben der Virgin-Jahre ohne sie bloß abzukupfern, retro und dennoch mitten im Hier und Jetzt." (GoodTimes)
