Dear all,

I'm booking some dates for HANS-JOACHIM ROEDELIUS.

Open period: OCTOBER 2012.

Renowned as a child actor in Nazi Germany, Roedelius had a post-war career
path of relative obscurity, working as a coal miner, salesman, nurse,
gardener, waiter, and masseur until finding himself in the midst of
Berlin’s own version of the cultural revolution of the 1960s. A brief
encounter with several future members of the infamous Baader-Meinhof gang
convinced him that art, not politics, was the form of protest best suited
to him — and thus began a life in music that for the next four decades
inspired a generation of musicians who followed.

Through the Berlin arts scene, Roedelius met Conrad Schnitzler, a kindred
spirit with whom Roedelius ultimately co-founded the Zodiak Free Arts Lab
and the 1968 happening known as Human Being. The project’s eventual demise
gave rise to the trio Kluster, featuring Roedelius, Schnitzler and a
young, unknown Swiss art student, Dieter Moebius. When Schnitzler left
after two short years to pursue a solo career, Roedelius continued with
Moebius as Cluster, going on to produce several albums in the late 1970s
that defined electronic music of the era.

In the 1980s, Roedelius turned his attention to solo projects, which
ranged in style from experimental to neo-classical. By the turn of the
century, Roedelius had more than 50 albums to his credit, and was still
hard at work on solo projects and collaborations, touring periodically
with Cluster, and routinely performing at festivals throughout Europe,
Asia and the US. In 2010, he and Moebius completed another Cluster studio
album, Qua, produced by Ohio-based composer and Roedelius’ long-time
collaborator, Tim Story.

In 2011, Roedelius and Dieter Moebius broke-off formals ties with each
other and Cluster. Roedelius then went on to form a new variant of Cluster
called Qluster. The new configuration is lined up with Hans Joachim
Roedelius and Onnen Bock.

I hope to hear from you very soon.

Best wishes.
