These 12 brand new colorful electro-acoustic recordings were written, recorded and produced by Klaus Wiese playing keyboards, Tibetan singing bowls, chello, tabla and using natural sounds of wind and ocean. The perfect introduction for those who haven't yet discovered the beauty of the ambient music.

Klaus Wiese explains: "Ambient music is - in my view - a kind of diving into the uncharted, in terms of the time-map as well as the melodic landscapes. It is much about an expression of the in-between of certain atmospheres and of ambiguity. This album plays with common notions of obvious melodic structures on the outside, but it points at something else behind. In this context, sequence and abrupt change into the essential are as important as the dosis of the unknown. This makes it similar to a perfume-code and its calligraphy. So I chose the direct title Perfume for this album. May the listener decide about the choice of flavours."

Composed, performed and produced by Klaus Wiese in winter 2005.
