The rock and roll textbook says this:
Mostly instrumental, the signature sound of spacerock and krautrock mixed rock music and "rock band" instrumentation (guitar, bass, drums) with electronic instrumentation and textures, often with an ambient music sensibility. Many albums featured a pulsing rhythm section so steady that its practitioners dubbed it "motorik" -- a mongrel word meaning, roughly, "mechanical music."
