Kosmos - Soundtracks of Eastern Germany's Adventures in Space

Now this is something different! Kosmos brings together a collection of music from East German Sci-Fi movies from the '60's & '70's. Composed by Karl-Ernst Sasse & Günther Fischer, two of East Germany's most important movie soundtrack composers, the music on this CD/LP is a real smorgasbord of styles; from groovy beat, to folk and through to ambient and weird electronic noises. Interspersed with vocal and electronic SFX from the movies themselves, listening to this collection is like taking a fascinating long and weird intergalactic journey. Turn the lights out, listen and get spaced out!
