Cells, Smudges and Melody: Tim Story-The Echoes Interview

Tim Story used to be the ultimate melodicist with albums like The Perfect Flaw and Beguiled. But now he’s mutating sounds, often with German icon, Roedelius.

Tim Story is something of a legend in electronic and new age circles. He’s been recording since 1981 and was a pioneer in ambient chamber music with albums like Shadowplay.  But he also has an edgier side that has come out in his work with the avant-garde German electronic duo Cluster and especially the elder member of that group. Hans-Joachim Roedelius. He’s pretty much abandoned his signature sound.

Tim Story: I have a lot of people that say boy, I love Beguiled or I love Shadow Play, it’s one of my favorite records — and you know, are you gonna make another record like that?  And I feel bad in a way, but, but I can’t in some ways because I mean I could and I might actually still.

We talk to Tim Story, and Roedelius, about Story’s shift from a melody maven to a dissonant dreamer on Echoes from PRX.
