Format: Audio CD
This has to be in the top 10 experimental electronic albums ever & yet it was released 33 years ago in 1981 (when I first bought the album) & it still sounds far more advanced & futuristic than any electronic music produced after it.
From the 1st high harmonic notes to the introduction of a throbbing bass line on the first track Oh Odessa you know that this is going to be an absolutely strange and brilliant musical journey. The track has an almost carnival in space atmosphere that is haunting, rhythmic, humorous & somehow earthy & spacy all at the same time. There are blats of white noise that follow the extraordinary beat which act as a perfect sonic bed for the most wonderful almost medieval but futuristic keyboard harmony phrases & lines ever. If this was the only brilliant song on the album it would be worth buying but this is just the 1st song in an Aladdin's cave of sonic riches.
The next track is titled Proantipro (lasting twice as long at 7.01) which tacks you on a strange dark journey that truly sounds different upon each listening but is certainly an epic electronic journey that counterbalances the dark brooding beat with the most incredible bleeps and squeltchy sounds ever.
The next track Seltsame Gegand at 7.34 long is a track so wonderful it is almost impossible to describe. It starts of with a stuttering beat then progresses very strongly into what sounds like a race between animals in a strange alien landscape jungle, with the most incredible approximation of bird sounds & jungle noises imaginable. This track creates such a vivid mental picture that I have to turn the volume up heaps & yes even dance which I rarely do.
The next 2 tracks are shorter (between 3.27 & 2.

Originally put out on the Sky Records label in 1981, as this particular Cluster CD is a bit too out-there (at least, for most) but still worth checking out if you sincerely enjoy any of Cluster's other discs. Highlights are easy enough to spot - like the seven-minute "Proantipro", "Tristan In Der Bar" and the eight-minute epic "Ufer" that sounds like an audio acid trip (in a good sense). 'Curiosum' manages to cross-over from weird experimental to unconventional krautrock. You've been forewarned.

Cluster has been making challenging and relevant electronic music for forty years from free form proto-industrial (see Kluster)to the glitchy minimal electronics of Qua and the music always has a certain Cluster vibe. Curiosum is interesting because when many Krautrockers had lost the path and gone into new age or main stream rock, Cluster continued to explore a mix of pop and avant garde beats and grooves that sounds timeless. Check out the tracks and if you're a Cluster fan you'll find this album worth buying.
