Roedelius + Cole - Selected Studies Vol. 1

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius & Lloyd Cole
P: 2013
What a collaboration! The British singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole has always been a Cluster fan, especially of the 1976 LP "Sowiesoso". Cole released his own heavily Cluster-influenced album "Plastic Wood" in 2001. Roedelius liked it and, over the next decade, Cole and Roedelius considered working together from time to time, but never actually got around to it. It was not until 2011 when they finally met in Vienna that they could finally begin in earnest. The album reveals mature, carefully composed music, as if Cole and Roedelius had been working together for years already. Both artists focus on electronic sounds in a selection of succinct, direct pieces, free of musical garrulousness. Cole neither sings nor plays guitar and Roedelius rarely touches the keys of his grand piano. Instead, both musicians have developed a subtle soundscape which only drifts towards pure noise on one track. All of the other "studies" on the album move within a vast spectrum of harmonic wonder and rhythmic stepping stones.

Roedelius + Schneider - Stunden

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius + Schneider
P: 2011
Hans-Joachim Roedelius, legendary figure in kraut rock, part of the seminal bands Cluster and Harmonia, and Stefan Schneider, founding member of the neo kraut rock band Kreidler (1994 – 1999), part of the trio To Rococo Rot and releasing music with his solo project Mapstation, present the recordings of their first collaboration. In twelve miniatures, played with piano and electronics, they unfold images that come across poetically, glorifying tranquility.

Roedelius + Schneider - Tiden

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius + Schneider
P: 2013
Not long after Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia) and Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot, Kreidler, Mapstation) had released their first album “Stunden”, accompanied by a few live shows in 2011, Eric Satie and Brian Eno were quoted as the great inspiration for their musical collaboration. Fine references no doubt, one having invented musique d'ameublement, and the other having refined it into ambient music 80 years later. Yet
“Tiden” does not sit easily in either camp. This is neither tasteful decor (à la Satie), nor is it electronic-auditory space filler (à la Eno), gazing towards infinity. The short duration of the 13 pieces is enough to discount either genre. Better to consider these as concentrated, inspired études, carefully thought through and in no way random or sketchy.
With cheerful gravitas, the two artists create absolute music – music which desires only to be itself, without ulterior effects and with the declared intent of involving the listener in his emotional, inventive game. Perhaps Franz Schubert’s moments musicaux would be a more suitable citation. The lightness and atmospheric intimacy of this music reveal Roedelius (grand piano, synthesizer) and the decades younger Schneider (Elektronik) as
musicians who understand how to listen to one another and improvise on each other’s ideas immediately. The result is a lively, relentless interplay of great composure, more surprising than any tide could be, as precise calendars exist for tidal flows.
Roedelius can already look back on a adventuresome career in music. Schneider has also prospered through exciting decades in contemporary pop. This is the second time their paths have crossed. “Tiden” keeps the promise which their first album made, genial contemporary music from two artists who are as one in heart and soul. And when Roedelius steps on the pedal of his grand piano, well it squeaks a little. (Asmus Tietchens)

Roedelius - Aquarello

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1998
One of Roedelius' finest records is this document of live performances with Nicola Alesini and Fabio Capanni as Aquarello. Strangers to Hans-Joachim Roedelius and his music will find in this record an excellent sampling of his talents and his unique musical language. Roedelius performs piano, keys, samples and voice, and is joined by Alesini's masterful alto and soprano sax and Capanni's innovative e-bow and treatments. Alesini's sax has such a distinct voice and manner, and he can truly be said to be "singing" through his instrument, gently telling stories through his song. Capanni, for his part, has complete command of the e-bow, and what is so exceptional about his playing is the remarkably wide range of sound he can produce through his instrument. These three composers/performers work extremely well together, in harmony one with each of the others, and so it's no surprise that this isn't the first time they've worked together.

Roedelius - Einfluss

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 2017
Roedelius, who has also published bulky, odd and hard-to-find works between Krautrock, Avantgarde, Electronica and Ambient in his extensive catalog, concentrates here on his tender and frugal piano playing, which is occasionally supplemented by quiet sound surfaces from the synthesizer. The often felt-crafted piano has an exceptionally soft sound and the microphones must have been as close to the instrument as some of Nils Frahm's recordings, because many background noises are captured so that the listener is in close proximity to the instrument. A wonderfully intimate sound is created, which fits in well with the sparingly-decelerated playing of the two musicians. Music for the head and heart, which achieves great effect with few means. Thank you for this sonorous blessing.

Roedelius - Fortress of Love

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1989
"Fortress of Love", is one of the most personal albums of Roedelius. He expresses emotions such as friendliness, warmth and confidence in slightly melancholic melodies, that always wear Roedelius' typical handwriting. Skillfully interweaves it with synthetic elements, the instruments played by friends, resulting in a wonderfully pleasing overall picture.

Roedelius - Gift of the Moment (Geschenk des Augenblicks)

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1984 / 2011
There is room for ambivalence when it comes to Roedelius’ solo work, and yet, this album delivers in a consistent and well crafted way from beginning to end. It’s probably my favorite of his solo releases, with its confident and poetic stride. In addition to giving the acoustic piano, cello, and violin lead billing to the synth (it’s here, just not front and center), this record includes one of the most profoundly beautiful Roedelius tracks ever written, “Wurzeln des Glücks (Roots of Joy).” The naturalism and Germanic sun-dappled forest-dweller vibe on this track is a dreamy addition to the smattering of Roedelius tunes found on his other records, that, although limited in number, are some of the most lovely songs I’ve ever heard. Someday I will make that perfect Roedelius mix, I’m just afraid it will be a lot shorter than I want it to be. But for all the hit and miss his oeuvre delivers, it’s hard to deny the simplicity and elegiac profundity in the songs that work. It is for that reason I return again and again to his music, as well as because he consistently finds resolve in the tension between the electronic and the acoustic, persistently falling back on repetition and basic melody to under gird the work. Drawn to its simplicity, I am as much attracted to his contemplative forebodings and moody song structures as anything, and in the end his music stands resolutely on its own.

Roedelius - Jardin au Fou

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1978 / 1998
This is an excellent reissue. Roedelius' second solo album outside of his main project at the time, Cluster, (originally Kluster).
This album was more "acoustic" based, as far as featuring prominant piano, and organ, rather than an electronic, music concrete' atomosphere.
Some wacky, almost circus-like, organ themes come up now and again, but as an overall album, really fun, contemplative.

This symphonic poem was created between 1993 and 1996 in Blumau (preparation of the basic material) and Altenburg (computerization of the whole work) with some help of Moebius, who is participating by giving him some fragments of their music for use in this work.

Roedelius - Like the Whispering of the Wind...

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1986 / 2011
Rarely has the title of a Roedelius albums (“Like the whispering of the wind”) so poetically and yet so accurately described its content. Roedelius expands his Études towards amorphousness, then suddenly a disarmingly familiar melody appears, from a completely different source perhaps (Harmonia? Cluster?). To continue the poetic theme of the
LP’s title, Roedelius is not only listening to the wind, he surrenders to it, allowing himself to be carried hither and thither; effortlessly, weightlessly transported to where the sun
shines brightest. In this context, the image of a butterfly may be pushing the metaphor a little too far, but an apposite one nevertheless.

Roedelius - Lustwandel

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1981 / 2010
Lustwandel is the sixth solo album by German keyboardist Hans-Joachim Roedelius, best known for his work with Cluster, Harmonia, and Aquarello. All the pieces on the album were composed by Roedelius with the sole exception of "Wilkommen", which was composed by Roedelius and Will Roper. It was released by Sky Records in 1981 and has been reissued on CD.  The music of Lustwandel is a series of ambient pieces for solo piano or electronic keyboards. Jim Brenholts, who reviewed Lustwandel for Allmusic, writes, in part: These unique compositions have character, charm, and grace that separate them from standard e-music and avant-garde fare. Roedelius uses gentle acoustics and silence as integral elements of his sound design. He segues within his atmospheres seamlessly. The sound is distinct and fresh. Only Roedelius can sound like this.
This album sounds like Cluster's "Sowiesoso" without Mobius' edgy influence; It's more mellow and quieter. The title track stands out as one of the best pieces of music you ever heard in the Krautrock genre. "Legende" is another perfect track, possibly the best piano solo by anyone, ever. The overwhelming longing and sadness found in these two tracks almost makes you weep.
Almost every track on this album is perfect: check out the 7th and 8th tracks. Some great cyclic synth work going on here. And whoever is doing those drums has more than earned respect. Also listen to "Langer Atem", a driving, pulsing rythm track shades of Terry Riley.

Roedelius - Momenti Felici

Artist: Hans Joachim Roedelius
P: 1987 / 2011
Since the early eighties, Roedelius had more or less dispensed with electronics, focusing increasingly on the grand piano. He also collaborated with various combinations of musicians to create a new kind of music, vastly different to Cluster and Harmonia aesthetics. For Roedelius, it was not only a period of reorientation in musical terms, but also geographically: Austria was now his home. “Tu felix Austria” (Oh, happy Austria), a time-honored Austrian campaign slogan, became his very own motto in no time at all. The pleasure he derived from playing the piano and meeting musicians on the same wavelength did the rest: an enthusiastic Roedelius allowed new impressions and discoveries to flow virtually unfiltered into his music.
“Momenti Felici” is one of the finest examples hereof. With characteristically exuberant inventiveness, Roedelius tickles the ivories lightheartedly, or, entering into more pensive mood, seems to caress the keys. With saxophonist Alexander Czjzek dueling on some of the pieces, Roedelius shuffles a pack of disciplined compositions and carefree improvisations. In this respect, “Momenti Felici” most closely resembles “Jardin au fou”. On closer listening, however, the length in time between the two albums can be discerned. Roedelius honed both his compositional and, more than anything, his playing skills in the lengthy period inbetween. Naturally, “Momenti Felici” saw Roedelius distance himself further still from the electronic scene. The signs had been there on his preceding albums and this release simply removed any last vestige of doubt. Roedelius had, in any case, long since found a new audience, who continue to follow him avidly today. With the passage of time, many of his companions from earlier days have come to realize that a beautiful melody and rich piano chord can be just as pleasing to the ear as pure tones and rhythm machines.
Stringent compositions and neoclassical improvisations. Piano pieces, some with saxophone and/or synthesizer accompanied.
