Norman Records has released Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978, by pioneering German electronic artist Hans-Joachim Roedelius.
Roedelius is best known for his work with Cluster and Harmonia, but he has also had an active solo career and collaborations with Brian Eno and others.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
A distillation of the highlights of the 2014 compilation originally released in 2014 as 3LP + 3CD box set, comprising an audio ‘sketchbook’ of German electronic music composer Hans-Joachim Roedelius during the so-called ‘Forst years’ working closely with Cluster and Harmonia.
Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978 boils the set down to an easily digestible single-disc release.
