Klaus Röder- Kristallisationen 1 & 2

FYI Folks- You can purchase Planam's recently released deluxe LP issues of Klaus Röder's Kristallisationen 1 & 2 from venerable institutions such as Mimaroglu Music Sales and Forced Exposure...


You can grab the free, nice quality downloads of Klaus Röder's complete recorded works straight from his website. Worth a listen if you're at all interested in experimental synths or musique concrète.

Says Miramoglu:
"i came across röder’s two 70s self-issued lps a few years back & was completely floored ; his “crystallisations” (extensively edit-oriented musics, often using a single sound-source) display a kind of micro-assemblage prowess that pre-dates the likes of squarepusher by a few decades (seriously, the rhythmic scale of some of that stuff is almost hard to believe) ... not knowing much about röder, i was surprised to learn that he was the guitarist on kraftwerk’s “autobahn” (briefly touring with the band that year before rolf & florian cleaned house & hired wolfgang flür & karl bartos) ... what a life !!!


klaus röder is by necessity an inventor. systems, machines, treatments, everything is (hand)made to provoke, to induce a musical result not only technically superb but loaded with the author's intimacy: humour, sound elements of a private life, a kid giggling,... indeed a highly emotional and poetical approach."
