Australian-born, England-based composer Paul Schütze hasn’t been terribly active musically for a few years now, but not because he hasn’t been creative. These days, it seems that his passion is in making perfumes of exquisite quality.
Still, it’s nice to go back to hearing the masters after enduring a barrage of good, but not-quite-brilliant ambient music releases. This classic was first issued in 1992 by Extreme Records in Australia and followed up by Big Cat in the United Kingdom. Hopefully New Maps II will also be reissued forthwith.
