    I think I have a couple albums by him if he went by his last name. RIP

    I thought Moebius would have no end. RIP.

    ^ Indeed.

    Sad about this.

    I'm doing Cluster '71, Zuckerzeit and both Harmonias this upcoming weekend. Odd to think that he was actually younger than Roedelius.

    Man o' man. It's getting harder looking at the music news every day.
    I going to have to reach back into the attic eaves & pull out some Cluster vinyl. A little quiet time for me tonight.

    Moebius & Plank, Rastakraut Pasta!!!

    He was a true pioneer, his experiments with Schnitzler and Roedelius set my world on fire.

    Some wonderful music. Originality trumps musicianship sometimes... Tonight I think I'll pull out "Rastakraut Pasta" and "Deluxe".

    I love the early Clusters and the Harmonias (especially the Harmonias), but I forgot about Rastakraut Pasta, which is another solid fave....

    on Rastakraut Pasta. My other 2 favorites from outside Cluster/Harmonia are "Double Cut" which is kind of Proto-Techno and the great "Cosmic Couriers" release from the 90s.

    RIP!

    Very sorry to hear of Dieter's passing. Rest in peace, or the electronic noises of your choosing.

    A true visionary artist. And one of my favorite ones...

    I played both Klusters, "Sowiesoso", Liliental, "Zero Set" and Cosmic Couriers "Other Places" in memoriam...

    There were actually three Klusters: Klopfzeichen and Zwei-Osterei of course, but also Schwartz was a live recording of the trio. It was released first under this title under Schnitzler's name, then later as "Eruption" by Kluster. Then of course Cluster (re-released as "Cluster '71"), Cluster II, Zuckerzeit, Sowiesoso, Cluster & Eno and After The Heat.

    Don't forget Liliental's sole album.

    It was their only LP, but a good 'un.

    I saw him at least once, with Cluster on their first US tour.

    I saw Michael Rother in a duo (I think, it might have been a trio, but not Harmonia) live around '97-'99, and I could've sworn that Moebius was playing with him. But alas, I have no ticket stub as I bought at the door, and in my older age, the memory is fleeting.

    Played the Moebius & Plank "Rastakraut Pasta"/"Material" 2-on-1 CD last night, and found myself liking even the tracks I had always considered "duds". I played those LP's to death back when they first came out. I never got around to "Deluxe" and "After The Heat", so they'll be on tap for tonight.
