Eno Moebius Roedelius Plank
A prime compilation from the Eno/Cluster family, Begegnungen features solo, duo, and trio recordings circa 1976-1984. These include pieces from various configurations of Eno, Moebius, Roedelius, Plank, and percussionist Mani Neumeier. The compositions are strong and inventive, and the music, an eclectic mix of progressive Krautrock and artistic, ambient electronica, is probably the best of its genre. All the material is synth-based and mostly upbeat, even bubbly at times.
