Boomkat Product Review:
'Wunderland' is a dizzying example of 1983-84 digital synth exploration conducted by Ata Tak co-founder, Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator. As you may imagine froman album adorned in surrealist caricatures of mutant, hybrid animals frolicking and playing instruments, the music in 'Wunderland' is more than a touch eccentric. It was created by NDW pioneer Dahlke after moving to New York from Wuppertal in North Western Germany, looking for inspiration amidst the madness of a megatropolis fully adopting the plugged-in sounds of electro after early hip hop. But 'Wunderland' is light years away from electro, better described as something like Kraftwerk and Haruoumi Hosono playing complex lounge jazz using a pre-MIDI set up on a utopian resort somewhere in a space quadrant we've haven't yet discovered. In reality, Dahlke was sampling sounds from animals at the New York City zoo and, using an intricate, pre-MIDI hardware solution called Brontologik to control recording levels, turning them into some of the strangest, highly melodic early digital music we've ever heard.
