Recorded in 1977, this classic work is an expression of Schoener's personal and subjective experiences from frequent trips to southeast Asia. Joined by Andy Summers (of The Police) on guitar and the other members of the band, The Secret Society, Schoener's Moog, Mellotron and keyboards lay a unique foundation for Gregorian vocals… It is recordings like this that show the timelessness of this musical genre.
In 1968 Eberhard Schoener raised a laboratory for electronic music at the Bavaria Studios, Munich, being the first German musician to own a Moog synthesizer. He brought electronic music from Germany into the world and also released the first German album with exclusively electronic meditation music. Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland worked with Eberhard Schoener for years before their international breakthrough as 'Police'.
Although this is essentially a solo bass date, Eberhard Weber's use of overdubbing and an echo unit turns his bass into an orchestra of sorts. Since he is a strong composer, covering a wide span of moods during this set of melodic originals and avoiding the use of his effects as gimmickry, Weber creates an introverted but accessible program whose appeal should stretch beyond just lovers of bass solos.
Windows is a live album by Jon Lord and the German conductor and composer Eberhard Schoener; the music and the record are primarily credited to Lord. It was taped at a concert in Munich, (West) Germany on 1 June 1974 and the music is a mix between progressive rock and orchestral late romantic/modernist styles…
"Ein Klassiker von Eberhard Weber. Seine Colours fanden das ideale Verhältnis von minimalistischen Klavier- spiel, singendem Bass, klagendem Saxophon- spiel und nervösem Schlagzeug. Hohe Bewertungen für die Interpretation und Klangqualität." ~Audio
