|Hans-Joachim Roedelius comes from a family of teachers, preachers, musicians and doctors. Dieter Moebius's origins are more informal, as his long-standing association with the Harmonia Commune of Germany suggests.
Together, they form Cluster, and have produced an extensive discography of meditative electronic music. Sowiesoso, which means 'any way way' was released in 1976. This album was recorded during a particularly fruitful time in Berlin history, before each artist began their solo careers, starting in 1978 and 1983, respectively.
Cluster originally came out of an art music collective called the 'Zodiak Free Arts Lab', which was formed by Conrad Schnitzler ( one of the leaders of Berlin's avant-garde ). The adventurous, experimental spirit of the 1970's German electronic music scene flows throughout Sowiesoso.
Listen attentively, without distraction, to this lovely musical offering, and you may find that you are then transported to far away places, by Cluster's whimsical imagination and abundant musical talent.
