Reading the release blather below makes me feel so old; I remember when the cassette of this was released; I never did get to hear that cassette, but I can finally hear this now!

"Live In Vienna is the eighth full-length album by German electronic music outfit Cluster and their first and only album with Joshi Farnbauer. It is the first of three live albums recorded by Cluster.
On June 12, 1980 Cluster performed at the Wiener Festwochen Alternativ with Farnbauer. The performance was recorded and released as a limited edition cassette on the British York House Records (YHR) label. It was reissued in Germany on the Transmitter label of 'GrĂ¼ne Kraft' owner Werner Pieper.
For those who had grown up with Cluster's accessible '70s work with Eno and Plank, and their collaboration with Michael Rother in Harmonia, Live in Vienna's slow-growing swaths of electronics and noise must have represented a bit of a shock. But it was really more of a throwback to Cluster's earliest years, when they performed dense electronic "jams" with Conrad Schnitzler as Kluster. The addition in Vienna of Joshi Farnbauer, a friend and fellow artist who played percussion and explored the sound possibilities of his own sculptures, also mirrored the fluid and spontaneous configurations that characterized those times. As chance would have it, they never met up with Farnbauer again."
