Roedelius & Thievery Corporation Interviews
This Weekend on Echoes, Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster/Harmonia and Thievery Corporation
Hans-Joachim Roedelius, was a founding member of the bands Cluster and Harmonia, bands that influenced artists like David Bowie on his Berlin Triology and especially Brian Eno, who not only co-produced that trilogy, but went to make music with these musicians as well. But while Roedelius began in the electronic zone, at 86, he says he’s unplugging and just playing acoustic piano. We talk to him on Echoes.
