Harmonia (consisting of Dieter Mobius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster, and Michael Rother of Neu!) was a krautrock supergroup of sorts. Their music was a stately blend of synthesizers and guitar-based bluster, and their pioneering early '70s efforts presaged much ambient and electronic music in the coming decades. LIVE 1974 offers a historic snapshot of the group during the period between their debut, MUSIK VON HARMONIA, and their follow-up, DELUXE. Hypnotically drifting between extended space-rock jams and hypnotic, burbling synth sequences, the album captures the genesis of a post-rock paradigm--where traditional song structure and development were upended in favor of the drifting soundscapes of ambient music.
