Cyclopean

About Cyclopean

Following the release of The Lost Tapes, an archival compilation from highly influential German experimental rockers Can, founding members of said group Jaki Liebeziet and Irmin Schmidt were inspired to create after the flood of excitement surrounding the unearthing of the long-buried Can material, and met with longtime collaborators Burnt Friedman and Jono Podmore at France's Studio les Rossignols in May of 2011. The quartet had worked together previously in various combinations, but took the name Cyclopean for this grouping, quickly composing an imaginative hybrid of electronic and organic instrumental music with hints of Middle Eastern influence. The group released a self-titled four-song EP on Mute Records in February of 2013. ~ Fred Thomas
