Two legends of the German Krautrock and electronic scene — Steve Schroyder, former member of Tangerine Dream, and Zeus B. Held, Birth Control member of many years — have joined forces to start their new music project: Dream Control. On their debut album „Zeitgeber“ electronic pioneers Zeus B. Held and Steve Schroyder celebrate their very own sound and rhythm in a cosmic journey through audio and time, structured in ten compositions and improvisations. Various tracks are enhanced by the voices of Anne Zeides and Tami Williams as well as the overtone and throat singing of Kolja Simon und Felix Mönnich aka AlienVoices.
As with all Panetware Records releases the music of Dream Control is based on chosen planetary or molecular tunings, which differ from the usual concert pitch.
