‘On The Way To The Peak Of Normal’ is the third album by Holger Czukay, originally released in 1981.
After ‘Movies’, his first post-Can solo album, Czukay continued exploring the methods of sampling and laidback jamming on this follow-up. The side long ‘Ode To Perfume’ / ‘Fragrance’ coasts along on some heavily twangy guitar, shortwave static, treated vocals, and drunken trumpet, all in a hypnotic late night groove.
Intended as environmental music for some underlit, velvet clad chillout room, the album can be seen as one long rumination on improvised understatement.
