Cluster & Farnbauer

Live in Vienna


imprec308   2xCD


Packaged in a deluxe six panel digi.

Live in Vienna is the eighth full-length album by German electronic music outfit Cluster and their first and only album with Joshi Farnbauer. It is the first of three live albums recorded by Cluster. Until now Cluster & Farnbauer had never been reissued on compact disc.

On June 12, 1980 Cluster performed at the Wiener Festwochen Alternativ with Farnbauer. The performance was recorded and released as a limited edition cassette on the British York House Records (YHR) label. It was reissued in Germany on the Transmitter label of "Grüne Kraft" owner Werner Pieper The style of the music is highly experimental and discordant and very reminiscent of Moebius and Rodelius'' early work with Conrad Schnitzler in Kluster, albeit with updated electronic instrumentation.

Live in Vienna was the only Cluster release never reissued on CD and this CD reissue includes archival material as well as newly mastered audio & new artwork created by Cluster member Dieter Mobius.

Cluster was formed around 1971 when Roedelius and Moebius left Conrad Schnitzler''s group Kluster. Along with Kluster they have had a tremendous influence on the development of contemporary electronic music. Julian Cope has placed 3 Cluster albums in his Krautrock top 50 and The Wire included the first Cluster album in their list of One Hundred Records That Set The World On Fire. Along with Neu! co-founder Michael Rother Cluster formed the remarkable group Harmonia. Between 1976 and 1979 one of Cluster''s most frequent collaborators was Brian Eno.
