Asmus Tietchens born 3 February 1947, Hamburg, who also records under the monikers Hematic Sunsets and Club of Rome, is a German composer of avant-garde music. Tietchens became interested in experimental music and musique concrète as a child, and began recording sound experiments in 1965 with electronic musical instruments, synthesizers and tape loops. In the 1970s he met producer Okko Bekker, and the two formed a decades-long partnership. Peter Baumann of Tangerine Dream heard a recording of.

In retrospect, we might suspect that Asmus Tietchens was deliberately leading us up the garden path with the discordant pseudo-pop of his early musical productions. Four albums between 1981-1983 and a handful of individual pieces comprise the Zeitzeichen time signal phase which, in the words of their creator, was characterized by the implementation of rhythmic-harmonic set pieces and gaudy record sleeves.

Tietchens' second album takes a big leap from Adventures in Sound Nachtstücke. His debut was rather cold and atmospheric. This one is quirky and dominated by the Roland CompuRhythm drum machine. Some people could see a filiation between this side of Tietchens' work, and the naive electro-pop that briefly surfaced almost 20 years later Felix Kubin, Reznicek. But the original still stands strong. Of course, synthesizer technology being what it is, the music has aged, but the artist's unpredictability has kept it fresh. You simply cannot tell where these short tunes noth. Asmus Tietchens is one of the best known German artists in the field of abstract music. His early works though are finest avant-garde synthesizer pop. Biotop from 1981 was Tietchens' first release on the German label Sky Records Cluster, Michael Rother etc. It is inhabited by insectoid squeaks, banging percussion and echoes of displaced nursery rhymes. These blaring, crashing tracks glare with artifice, mirroring the ideas of an artist lacking the inclination and capacity to compose straightforward easy listening music. Album 1981 16 Songs. Dance , 1981. Biotop begins on a single, piercing note and expands to include overtones from a whole range of synthesizer technology most musicians probably haven't even explored now, much less in 1981. As layer upon layer of bright, somehow comforting fuzz-ambience subsumes the original tone, it suddenly recedes like a supernova into a shadow of its former brilliance. Die Stadt is presently in the process of releasing all of Tietchens' early material in a series of 18 CDs, of which Biotop is the second. It's my favorite of his, and if you're interested in the development of IDM in any way, it's practically required listening. Biotop is a music album by Asmus Tietchens released in 1981.
