Not for the fainthearted as two-thirds of Kluster reunite for a fun session in a sonic trash can.
The first shared recording between Roedelius and Conrad Schnitzler since their legendary 1969-71 Kluster day is also the most abstract and noisy opus in the entire HJR discography. The former sent a parcel of his outtakes to the latter who emptied the contents onto his PC hard disk as one might empty a trash can, scattering tiny fragments of white noise, rhythm, pulse, melody and yet more noise and processing the results into rough hewn slabs of musique concrete. It could be the apocalyptic soundtrack to the end of the world. However, Schnitzler was smarter than he often let on and his subtle trick here was to sequence the one recognisable Roedelius track at number 14 out of the 17 tracks, when suddenly the curtain of white noise unexpectedly peels back to unveil radiantly beautiful synth strings, like an unexpected burst of sunshine peeking through blizzard of snow. Very much for completists only, but there's a lot of detail and not a few sonic jokes within this Dada-ist sketch book.
