Roedelius - Selbstportrait VI ,The Diary Of The Unforgotten (1972-1978)




Hans Joachim is a pioneer in the field of the exploitation of electrically generated tones, sounds and noises, and belongs to the founders of contemporary popular electronic music. His discography lists about 80 releases, and there are more than 10 productions ready to be released in the future.
He was a founding member of groups such as:
"Geräusche", "Plus/minus", "Per Sonare", the free artslab "Zodiak" in Berlin, "Kluster", "Cluster", "Harmonia", "Meeting Point Vienna", "Friendly Game", "Aquarello" and "Tempus Transit".
The Diary of the Unforgotten gathers a variety of home recordings crafted between his duties in Cluster and Harmonia and collaborating with Brian Eno during the years spanning 1972 and 1978. These are primarily lo-fi, improvised sound sketches, or “self-portraits” as the artist calls them, that reflect the pastoral calm of the riverbank behind his house. Synching up the synthesized atmospherics of the studio so they move as one with the water, meadow, farm animals, and passing wildlife outside his window, Roedelius offers listeners a glimpse into the solitude of his creative process with these ten compositions—something that anyone who has been following his legendary career can appreciate. The Diary of the Unforgotten is an essential piece of Roedelius history and a diary well worth remembering
