Charlemagne Palestine - Schlingen-Blängen (rec. 1988, rel. 1999)
This is a work that rewards concentration for its full duration, to let the initially static-seeming piece reveal all its subtle changes. Different frequencies are periodically introduced and collide against each other, creating an oscillating feeling of rhythm amidst the giant, unchanging sustained chord. After ramping this up as far as it can go, the gradually quietening ending is just as stately.
