Featuring the legendary Hans-Joachim Roedelius plus Onnen Bock and Armin Metz. An album of minimalism using three grand pianos.
Qluster was the group’s third incarnation, having been founded under the name of Kluster in 1969 by Roedelius, Dieter Moebius and Conrad Schnitzler. In 1970 they were responsible for two milestones of electronic music. Schnitzler quit Kluster 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 Armin Metz, an adventurous virtuoso on the bass, joined Qluster’s ranks. Metz has earned quite a reputation for his excellent work in world music collaborations.
Out on 10 July.
