If you missed Bartz’s amazing Pictures of Earth and Space release in 1987, and re-released in 1995 or still can’t find a copy of the limited edition Build Your Own Planet then by all means seek this excursion out.

For spaced-out, infinite guitars, stretched-out sounds and shimmerings into the nether regions of missing matter, ambient spaces interspersed with errant dimensionaloid detritus of gilded weirdness – do get a Bartz CD. This is not like anything you have ever heard. Many will be either very lost or very blissed-out once this head-room descends and all time-space continuum boundaries fall away.

This is the musicks of the mid 21st century. When folks of the future look back for echoes of their time, they will point to Bartz as we now point back to our own litany of visionaries.

And will this music continue? Oh but yes, as Bartz sub-titles this release “Cosmic Guitar Experiments Volume 1” so will we hear and see more from him. He is currently working on very exciting things that go beyond the range of a mere CD and developing new instruments to create his sonic vision for tomorrow. A recommended step in the right direction is . . . Bartz.
