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'.
ECM was producing ambient long before the word was in practice. This may be one of Weber's best, especially "Seriously Deep" which is brilliant. This is a true masterpiece and the long track, 'Seriously Deep', needs to be listen very carefully; a sublime moment, according to me, is when Mariano starts to play his solo…. pure beauty.

Gottfried August Homilius (2 February 1714 – 2 June 1785) was a German composer, cantor, and organist. He was the main representative of the empfindsamer style.
Born in Rosenthal, Saxony, as the son of a Lutheran pastor, Homilius began schooling as a pupil at the Annenschule in Dresden. He later studied music in Leipzig, where he was the pupil of Johann Sebastian Bach. From 1742 he was organist at the Frauenkirche in Dresden, and from 1755 until his death he was Cantor of the Kreuzkirche in Dresden and music director at the three main churches of Dresden. His main place of work was at the Frauenkirche; the Kreuzkirche was destroyed in 1760, and not rebuilt until after his death.Wikipedia.org
