“Roedelius: Synthetik Sehnsucht”

Hans-Joachim Roedelius is one of the brightest stars in the constellation of German Kosmiche music. As a pivotal figure in the post '68 German avant garde, he would influence a generation of musicians, artists and thinkers by co-forming the Zodiak Free Arts Lab in Berlin with conceptual artist Conrad Schnitzler, with whom he would also form Kluster, alongside Dieter Moebius. When Schnitzler left in '71 he and Moebius continued to make music together as Cluster, and also formed Harmonia with Neu!'s Michael Rother, before collaborating with Brian Eno on the seminal 'After The Heat' and 'Cluster & Eno' albums. This selection largely looks at Roedelius' involvement in releases for the Sky label between 1976 and 1982, picking tracks from the classic Cluster albums 'Sowieso', 'Grosses Wasser' and 'Curiosum' next to the aforementioned work with Eno and a selection of his sublime solo compositions. It's certainly possible to hear the melodic influence of Roedelius running through the evolution of electronic music over the last 20 years, from the complex modifications of Autechre all the way to the most recent Synth experiments of Emeralds or Oneohtrix Point Never, we hope this selection will open his beautiful music up to another generation of electronic explorers...

“Class”

About time this guy his dues.

To me, Roedelius is one of the true pioneers and innovators in electronic music who's beaten his own path with a huge array of outstanding music.

For those who don't know Cluster are playing the AV Festival in Sunderland on 10th March (with Zoviet France) - it's only a fiver entry.

Thanks for this comp. It is clean and intriguing music and more then half of witch I was discovering as I listened.

“Long Overdue”

this man is a genius. For those that saw the recent Eno documentary, this guy was ploughing a similar field, albeit even earlier!
Had the pleasure of introducing him on the big chill stage a couple of years ago. A true gent too!

“Kosmische”

Fantastic compilation. Well put together. Showing the true depth of Roedelius' music. It manages to weave the more well known pieces with tracks from various solo albumes, to good effect. His trick is that he manages to include something both quirky and memorable in all that he does, that sticks in the memory. A true maverick.
