"The third incarnation of the legendary Krautrock project Kluster/Cluster expands their audience with contemplative, mature and intelligent electronic music. Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Onnen Bock and Armin Metz are Qluster, founded under the name of Kluster in 1969 by Roedelius, Dieter Moebius and Conrad Schnitzler. Schnitzler quit the band two years later, leaving Roedelius and Moebius to carry on as Cluster. When the duo disbanded in 2010, Roedelius continued to fly the K/Cluster flag, this time as Qluster, joined by the keyboarder and electronic musician Onnen Bock. The duo again became a trio in 2013, when multi-instrumentalist Armin Metz joined Qluster's ranks. "Echtzeit" is already Qluster's sixth album. After the pure piano work on "Tasten", the group has now returned to their electronic equipment with renewed vigor on "Echtzeit". Yet Roedelius' favorite instrument, the piano, also receives its due. Large parts of the album were recorded in a church. The principle behind the creative process for Kluster/Cluster/Qluster has always been much the same: Musical structures arise from the moment. The pieces on their albums are passages taken from long improvisations that feature a special atmosphere and engaging patterns or figures. Playful experimentation with new instruments and effects or settings is often what leads to the creative spark. "Echtzeit" is contemplative, mature, intelligent electronic music that could significantly expand the trio's audience." (label info) vinyl version comes with CD
