Originally released 2000 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted (wooden) boxset “Contemporary Works”
U.S.O. are Razoof Lear aka Uwe Lehr, Klaus Schulze and Olli Finken aka O’Finken: not a permanent group, but a loose studio session turn, comprising of two members of the Cologne DJ/musician-collective “Solar Moon System” (SMS) and Klaus Schulze. A circle of friends, allowing a look through the keyhole for the listener – to a spontaneous and inspirational performing electronic theater of improvisation, in which some grinding synthesizer pads, pounding guitars and e-drum-patterns produce maximum dramatic effect. Less is more. Tension is created in the syntheses of Ambient, Dub, Trance and Hip Hop, through the art of simplicity. Space is created between the notes, the instruments and the musicians in which even the smallest details develop into something hypnotic and fascinating which draws you on and leaves an inner labyrinthine complexity which stays in your head long after the notes have stopped. 68:45 mins.
