Gerrard hooks up with Schulze

Klaus Schulze has wanted to work with Lisa Gerrard since, like, forever, but it's not easy. Lisa G isn't quite so collaboration-hungry as, say, the Paul Wellers of this world:

"I have wanted to work with Lisa since the days of Dead Can Dance in the 80's, but I never had an opportunity for such a collaboration. You don't get her on the phone so easily. When Lisa called me we spoke for quite a long time and managed to agree on a deal. We both have very similar opinions about art. For example, she says, ‘music is something sacred’, I can understand that very well but try and explain that to a normal human being..."

Now, though, Klaus has got his wish: Farscape is released on the 4th July.
