""Rufen" is the second instalment in a trilogy of Qluster music, following on from the "Fragen" studio album. In four impressive live recordings, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Onnen Bock unfold aural panoramas which can only be described, in the truest sense of the word, as fantastic. Had Claude Debussy not already composed "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun", then Qluster would have been ideally placed to do so, their transparency and polymorphism so reminiscent of his high impressionism. Shunning computers and discarding digital sound Roedelius and Bock appear to have detached themselves from their own age, exclusively playing analogue keyboards, such as the good old Korg MS 20 synthesizer. Nevertheless, they do not revert to earlier periods in search of their stylistic approach. Conventional rhythmic and harmonic patterns are wholly absent. Qluster's foreign sounds and lucidity bring their music closer to contemporary electronic chamber music; although, as paradoxical as it may sound, a form of chamber music which Qluster first had to invent."
