Fans of the electronic music pioneer Hans Joachim Roedelius now can add to their collection Offene Türen - the first-ever release on CD of his 1982 classic. Reissued by Nepenthe Music & Publishing, Offene Türen has been carefully remastered by the noted ambient recording artist Robert Rich. The CD release features all-new sleeve artwork by Next Year's News, with poetic liner notes by Stephen Iliffe, author of Painting with Sound: The Life and Music of Hans-Joachim Roedelius. While Roedelius is widely known for his solo Romantic piano compositions, this recording shows his more experimental / avant-garde side. Those who know Roedelius from his work with Dieter Moebius in the band Cluster have compared Offene Türen to Cluster's 1981 album, Curiosum.
