Cluster’s hiatus between “Curiosum” and “Apropos Cluster” in 1990 lasted for almost ten years. Roedelius and Moebius spent this time developing their individual musical characteristics in a series of solo albums and collaborations which they released with other musicians. Roedelius and Moebius stayed true to their spirit of improvisation, playing together with a mini- mum of prior arrangements. So, in the duo’s finest tradition, “One Hour” is the product of two sessions recorded in the studio of musician and sound engineer Eric Spitzer-Marlyn in Austria. 60 minutes were selected from the most interesting passages and assembled into a coherent, cohesive musical sequence. Moebius and Roedelius guide their listeners deeper and deeper into the fantastical realm of musical extravaganzas. As placid as “One Hour” may seem, the album is nothing less than meditative. This is not ambient music. High impressionism would be a more apposite description. Appreciating the fleeting imagery and flow of ideas requires the listener’s undivided attention.
