Roedelius Performs at SUNY New Paltz on Sunday

Posted By on Tue, Oct 17, 2017 at 9:00 AM

Talk about an amazing and unexpected event. Electronic musician Hans Joachim Roedelius, the founder of Cluster and Harmonia, two of the leading acts of the 1970s Krautrock movement, is performing this Sunday at SUNY New Paltz.

Born in Berlin in 1936, Roedelius cofounded Cluster with Dieter Moebius and Conrad Schnitzler in the same city in 1970. Concurrent with the rise of similarly minded German bands like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, and Can, Cluster worked with the pivotal producer Conny Plank and caught the ears of David Bowie and future their collaborator Brian Eno. In 1973, as a side project, Roedelius and Moebius formed the “Krautrock super group” Harmonia with Neu! member Michael Rother; the trio went on to release two influential albums. As a solo artist, Roedelius has remained a vital force in the worlds of ambient and experimental music.

Here’s a track from Roedelius’s 1981 album Wenn dur Sȕdwind weht:

Hans Joachim Roedelius will perform at the Julien J. Studley Theater on the campus of SUNY New Paltz on October 22 at 2pm. Tickets are $8 ($6 for seniors and $3 for students). For more information, call (845) 257-7869 or visit http://www.newpaltz.edu/music/concertseries.html.
