Infinite Horizons

Infinite Horizons

This double CD was released in 1998 to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Horizon Music. The album contains rare and previously unreleased tracks by thirteen of today's most innovative contemporary instrumentalists. Artists such as Christopher Franke of Babylon 5 fame, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Johannes Schmoelling, Lightwave, Conrad Schnitzler, Klaus Krüger and Michael Hoenig contributed music to Infinite Horizons.

"An excellent compilation album of electronic music with hints of techno and ambient. The whole history of electronica and Krautrock is covered in this collection, in some sense. There are so many wonderful sound explorations on this set. Lightwave's 'Martian Cycles' is an excellent live performance, proving electronica does 'work' in a live context. Star Sounds Orchestra's 'Anakant' is much closer to what 31st century outer space dance music will be than 100 George Lucas bar scenes. This is highly recommended spacestuff."
