Another one of those tracks where I did a long recording and figured I’d edit it later. I eventually did edit down from 16+ minutes to the 11:30 or so that appeared on my record on 1200 Music. Cluster is definitely the best example of a certain aspect of my drum machine style — long, slowly changing, and pure rhythm.
This is one of a series of tracks I did in 1997 where I just recorded a minimal techno thing for a very long time and figured I’d edit it later. Without the pressure to get the song structure right on the first pass, I was more relaxed and did some decent evolving minimal techno tracks.
Recorded with Peter Schenk. One of the few recordings I ever got to do with Peter’s Xpander. Though I spent most of the time tweaking the filtery feedback delay patch on the Q2.
Recorded with Rob Williams, basically a 909 and a MAQ controlling a microwave.
