Kluster’s small bio


(I talk about Kluster’s original line up, not Cluster)



CONRAD SCHNITZLER in der Galerie transition


The formation of Kluster can be referred to the activities of Conrad Schnitzler, one of Joseph Beuy’s students at the Düsseldorf’s Fine Arts Academy. Schnitzler was a key figure in the underground art scene in Berlin in the late 60’s. He participated in the formation of the Zodiak Free Arts in 1968, with amongst others Hans Joachim Roedelius. Schnitzler soon met Dieter Moebius, an other student of Beuy’s and asked him to become the third member of the ensemble Kluster in 1969. The trio’s music directly reflected the free form aesthetic of the Art Lab in lengthy improvisational performances. The two first Kluster albums “Klopfzeichen” and “Osterei” came about when Schnitzler noticed a newspaper item regarding a church organist interested in their music. The album was produced and released by arrangement with the church, hence the religious content of the text. The third and final Kluster album, “Kluster und Eruption” was released in collaboration with members of Eruption and released in a private pressing by the Block Gallery.

All Kluster’s albums are a precious and rare document in progressive electronic / contemporary avant garde music.
