"Compiled Dreams" is a musical retrospetive of Bernd Kistenmacher's recent work until 1997. It contains encores as well for other compilations recorded music.
"Heartbeat" was originally recorded in 1988 on the "Musique Intemporelle" compilation album and is a good example for Bernd Kistenmacher's "cosmic music" period.
"Lost In Thoughts" was recorded in 1989 for a dutch compilation album (KLEM sampler).
"Mindstudy I" and "Pleasures Of Life" are previously unreleased tracks, recorded in 1997. They were especially produced for this album.
"Forget The Past" is identic with the the same track, which was released on Bernd Kistenmacher's solo-album "Thoughts" beside the fact, that in this version all rhythm parts were removed. So the music gets another "direction".
"Shimmering Blue In An Artificial Sky" was recorded in january 1988 and is the encore of the three "Electronic Goes Benefit" shows held in the "Planetarium am Munsterdamm" in Berlin. Some technical problems with the used analogue synthesizers are listenable but the music is worth to kept "alive".
We present the Bernd Kistenmacher Classic Collection in its original versions. No audio manipulations or remixes has been done. A must have for purists and collectors.
