EsthéthiqueMusic • CD

Spheric Music is an electronic ambient label managed by Lambert Ringlage, also known as Lambert. It's all about spacy electronic downtempo tunes. Artists like Lambert, Klangwelt, Palantir and Robert Schröder are clearly all huge fans of Jean-Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, Kitaro and Tangerine Dream.
Esthéthique is Robert Schröder's newest album. Another word for his music is new age and that's not something I'm waiting for. Sure, they love making music and they love floating away in their interstellar imagination. But ambient is all about pulling the listener into your world and Robert fails completely at just that. I've heard this kind of music too many times before...
I suggest you go and listen to "Stunden" from Roedelius/Schneider if you want to hear some essential electronic krautrock/ambient...
