Genre: Electro. Re-issue from 1986. LP in heavy 180g Vinyl quality!
Best known as drummer for ASHRA and Klaus Schulze and as an electronic musician, ‘Oceanheart’ was his second solo album. It may sound like a child of the 1980s, but in a compositional sense it is related to the Berlin School of the 70's. Only few know, that Harald was active also in the 80s NDW- scene and that he was the drummer for JOACHIM WITT’s bestselling Album ‘Silberblick’ (which featured the megahit ‘Goldener Reiter’…)! “Oceanheart” was released on SKY Records 6 years after the debut. “The album title reflects my love of transcendental meditation, of course it might be taken for watery esoterics.” Harald Grosskopf again played everything himself, except for the tablas. In keeping with its prede- cessor, “Oceanheart” was no bestseller, but, like “Synthesist”, it attained cult status, rediscovered in recent years through the internet by a younger generation. Harald Grosskopf himself needed time to appreciate the work: “I only really discovered the musical quality of ‘Oceanheart’ years later. I finally realized that I had created something quite special.
