Notes

For the 2005 reissue of AUDENTITY the track order was changed to include a longer bonus track fitting on two CDs. The original order was:

  1. Cellistica
  2. Tango-Saty
  3. Amourage
  4. Opheylissem
  5. Spielglocken
  6. Sebastian im Traum

Some LP issues only used parts of the full album (see Releases notes).

The cover's head design is by Mediagraphics, Melbourne, Australia. Additional photos by Claus Cordes. A Japanese LP version used a completely different cover artwork (white with colored drawings).

In 2005 AUDENTITY was the eleventh Schulze album reissued by REVISTED RECORDS as part of a series of Schulze album reissues. The long bonus track Gem was the prototype recording for the soundtrack to the New Zealand thriller "Next of Kin" (1983). Although Gem is one continuous track, you can skip to any of the subtitles seperately.

Some music from AUDENTITY was used in:

  • the German ballet "Rattenfalle" (2006 and 2008) at Kammerspiel Würzburg

Equipment

G.D.S. computer synthesizer, electronics, EEH computer, Simmons persussion, cello, glockenspiel
