Cleen began as a side project of Haujobb’s Daniel Myer, who teamed up with vocalist Thorsten Meier for the first few releases, beginning with 1997’s Designed Memories. After the release of their second album, Thorsten Meier left to pursue other interests, and Daniel Myer assumed all musical and vocal duties. For the third release, Solaris, Myer changed the name of Cleen to Cleaner. Cleen, Cleaner, and Clear Vision have often been described as more synthpop oriented than Haujobb.
At this time, all of the Cleen and Cleaner releases are out of print. Daniel Myer continues to record with Haujobb and his numerous other projects, including the recently formed Clear Vision, which appears to be another linguistic twist in the Cleen / Cleaner family.
