Klaus Schulze – Virtual Outback
Re-Release of the high acclaimed album “Virtual Outback” (originally released 2000 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5-CD-boxset “Contemporary Works II”).
„Virtual Outback“ was just one single track: the elegiac 65 minute „The Theme: The Rhodes Elegy“, one of the most favorite of many Schulze fans.
The bonus track is from a filling work for the Chinese mass rally „China Millennium“ on the occasion of the turn of millennium 200/2001. After Klaus‘ delivery the Chinese government said: “NO – WAY”! First Klaus used the old Mao song, divided by cutting and transposing, and second he used an ethnic sample from Mongolia. That wasn’t possible too, due to the fact that Mongolians are a minority in China. The Chinese government stated: either you respect all minorities or no one.
