Further Information

The first ever (!) compilation of CLUSTER recordings compiled by John McEntire (Tortoise / The Sea & Cake). Cluster's influence on the development of electronic music cannot be overstated. The original trio of Conrad Schnitzler, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius released two seminal albums as Kluster before Roedelius and Moebius replaced the K with a C and continued as a duo. They produced eight albums in their most innovative period between 1971 and 1981, two of them together with another pioneer of electronic music, Brian Eno. Cluster anticipated much of what would later emerge in such varied styles as industrial, ambient, electro and even synthpop.

Staff Reviews

Excellent introduction to one of the key groups of the 1970s German experimental scene, giving an insight into their ambient, drone, motorik and kosmische sides. Compiled by John McEntire of Tortoise.
