The former CD of ". was altered in sound (not to everybody's delight) and some tracks were a bit shorter as on the original vinyl album. We have added a remarkable version of "Ludwig", played and recorded live in concert in September 1978 during a show by KS who was accompanied by a classical orchestra of young people. This release comes as a tri-fold Digipak with twenty-four page booklet. This is the only release of the album featuring the complete, original recording of "Georg Trakl".

In 1971 Schulze started a solo career as an electronic musician and released a couple of heavily experimental albums, "Irrlicht" and "Cyborg"

X is a music studio album recording by KLAUS SCHULZE (Progressive ve Rock) released in 1978 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Klaus Schulze - "X" (Sechs Musikalische Biographien) - Brain - 0080.

X (Klaus Schulze album). Klaus Schulze – electronics, percussion (on "Friedemann Bach" and "Heinrich von Kleist"). Harald Grosskopf – drum kit. Wolfgang Tiepold – cello (on "Heinrich von Kleist"), conductor (on "Ludwig II. von Bayern" and "Objet d'Louis"). B. Dragic – solo violin (on "Friedemann Bach"). Small string orchestra from Orchester des Hessischen Rundfunks (on "Ludwig II. von Bayern"). Large string orchestra of young Belgian musicians (on "Objet d'Louis").

This discography contains all of Klaus Schulze's solo records, as well as most of his musical collaborations with other artists on records. Samplers containing only (parts of) previously released Klaus Schulze tracks are not mentioned here. All others are mentioned in detail in The Works. The given times of both the single tracks of an album as well as the complete albums are only approximations

Each track on X or "Ten" (since it's Schulze's tenth release ) is titled after famous German personalities, but it's the provocative electronic music within the names that makes this one of his best albums. On this two-CD set, Schulze's sequencer is joined by electric guitar and drums, that pleasingly brings an earthy, simplistic feel into his pastiches. 1978 studio album by Klaus Schulze. On X Schulze attempted to execute a concept album of six "musical biographies" evoking contemporary or historical intellectuals with an influence on Schulze: Friedrich Nietzsche, Georg Trakl, Frank Herbert, Friedemann Bach, Ludwig II. von Bayern, and Heinrich von Kleist. In Ludwig II. von Bayern Schulze uses a theme borrowed from the third movement of Vivaldi's Concerto No. 11 in D minor (RV565) for 2 violins, cello and strings.
