Following in the pioneering steps of his father, the legendary Karlheinz Stockhausen, Markus Stockhausen made quite a splash with his first LP Aqua Sansa, recorded with Jasper Van't Hof. While jazz can be used as a reference point on this highly sought after album from 1980, it's more appropriate to think of the record in terms of freeform timbral expression. There's a fourth world, Jon Hassell-esque charm to pieces such as "Daybreak" while the likes of "Takone" sport a more eerie, minimalist charm. Either way, it's a highly worthy reissue for a much vaunted gem of leftfield music.
