The Dark Side of the Moog XI by Pete Namlook & Klaus Schulze in DTS 5.1XI album in Pete Namlook & Klaus Schulze "The Dark Side of the Moog" series now coming out with multichannel sound in DTS-CD 5.1!

This CD is a further step in the collaboration of Klaus and Pete. The old collaboration parameters are expanded with very intense and emotional moments that take the listener on a journey of a new quality. Monumental, spacy, environmental and beat-oriented. The new way removes limitations.
The Dark Side of the Moog up to X was a nice journey through the history of Space-Music in combination with the innovative music of today. XI is clearly a step further. Using a lot of analog, digital and futuristic virtual equipment combined with vast computer power to generate a sound that goes beyond its predecessors. For the first time The Dark Side of the Moog comes in DTS 5.1 Surround. The monumental power of The Heart of Our Nearest Star and its imaginary scenery is clearly made for big sound systems.

CD tracks: The Heart of Our Nearest Star Part I - IV 56.10 min
DTS 5.1 Music Disc/Stereo 2CD. For compatibility reasons (to listen to the music in the car or at your friends or if you dont own a DTS capable 5.1 Surround System) we included a stereo CD version in the double CD-pack.
