A Few Minutes After Trancefer is the first track on the fourteenth album by Klaus Schulze, TRANCEFER (1981). The title is a word play on "trance" and "transfer".


Recorded: 1981

Composer(s): Klaus Schulze

Perfomer(s): Klaus Schulze, Wolfgang Tiepold (cello), Michael Shrieve (percussion)

Alternate Title(s): A Few Minutes

Alternative Version(s): A Few Minutes After Trancefer (Version 33 Halfspeed)


While producing the album TRANCEFER, three different versions were tested: the "normal" 33 rpm version, a 45 rpm version (common on early IC-albums for sound and promotional reasons) and a halfspeed-cut". The differences in sound quality were minor, so the normal 33 rpm version got in production. In addition, 300 copies each of the two test LPs were manufactured and given to friends and journalists. For unknown reasons there were slightly different mixes used for those test LPs. One of these alternative versions of A Few Minutes After Trancefer was chosen as bonus track on the 2006 reissue of TRANCEFER.

This track was (partly) used for:

  • the French science tv magazine "Futur's" (1989)
