Der Fuenfte Himmel
Collection of outtakes from 1980-1983. Asmus Tietchens is one of the most renowned German artists in the abstract music scene. He began by recording a handful of Residents-influenced synthesizer albums, launching into a peerless mix of stuttering beats and off-kilter harmonies which earned his music the generic tag "pseudo pop". Der fuenfte Himmel reaches back to a time before and after the so-called Zeitzeichen phase, gathering up unwanted or rejected pieces, the ones considered unsuitable or simply left behind.
