4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious electronica! 19 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is Johannes Schmoelling's first solo release since he left Tangerine Dream. Meaning "Wind Blown Reeds", the album is awash with sequencers and (then) state of the art electronic soundscapes. Quirky melodies predominate - this certainly takes a bit of getting used to, although its definitely more accessible than his later solo recordings (the Zoo of Tranquility and White Out). Schmoelling's speciality is for creating tracks that start with near silence, and gradually build in volume and rhythmn. Best played loud to be appreciated fully!

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning soundscapes 23 Aug 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
After several weeks of listening thru Rdio around Tangerine Dream related music this suddenly popped out - seems quite special and matches my mental rhythms.

4.0 out of 5 stars Art of vision 18 Feb 2000
By loteq - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This keyboardist was a member of Germany's electronic pioneers Tangerine Dream in the early-'80s. "Wuivend riet" is Johannes Schmoelling's first and, overall, best solo album. Still, this record neither is as melodic as "Exit" or "Optical race" nor as consistent as "Phaedra" or "Tangram". The first four tracks are lofty compositions with ethereal synth waves, piano-driven melodies, and slow-motion rhythms. "Zeit" with its tension-filled atmosphere and relentlessly ticking clocks is the only track reminiscent of TD. "Wuivend riet part 1" is a funny soundscape with samples frogs and other natural sounds. "Part 2" is an interesting, droning nightmare, but uncomfortable and hardly accessible. All in all, a surprisingly diverse album which transcends the borders of conventional synth-based music. For advanced listeners. For other albums by Schmoelling, search classical at amazon.com and read my review of "The zoo of tranquility".

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent solo recording from ex-Tangerine Dream member 29 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wuivend Riet marks Johannes Schmoelling's first solo recording since his departure from Tangerine Dream. Wuivend Riet ("wind-blown reeds" in Dutch) was first composed by Johannes for the play Opus ESP (by Hans Bosch). The music is nostalgic, moving, and best shows Johannes Schmoelling's talents as a solo artist. A definite must for any Tangerine Dream fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars First 4 songs are better than anything TD ever did 26 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's been said with much authority that Schmoelling is the one TD member who brought lasting quality to the work of the group. His melodies are the strength of not only their soundtrack days but also the force of their powerful 1980's tunes.
This album's first 4 songs are better than anything Tangerine Dream did prior to his arrival in the band. If you like TD and don't have this album, I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for every electronic music fan! 14 Jun 2001
By S. Schweinfurt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is not easy to come out of the shadow of a great band. But Johannes Schmoelling got it with his first(!) solo release! Here you can hear who was responsible for the big success of TANGERINE DREAM during the 80ies!

5.0 out of 5 stars A touch of Tangerine Dream 27 Dec 1998
By starmoods@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Any of you who enjoy Tangerine Dream know this former member from the 80's when he joined them. He did a remarkable job, great synth playing with some percussion, very relaxing and worth the money.
