For the piece Aguirre, on this album, Florian Fricke used a mellotron-like instrument called the choir-organ. This basically consisted of keyboards which operated tuned tape loops running in parallel with one another. The loops could be sustained indefinately. He used tapes of human voices on the tape loops, giving the otherworldly human/ electronic effect heard in this track.
