About this item
Originally released 1982 on Sky 072
The music: electronical chamber music that impressively renders audible Roedelius' musical transition from the 70s into the 80s. Complex, vibrant, enigmatic, avant-garde, timelessy beautiful.
"Offene Türen" is a purely electronic album. Without losing himself in their infinite tonal possibilities, Roedelius delights in playing a selection of synthesizers. He even deploys an analogue rhythm machine now and then to discreet effect. Roedelius takes great care to steer well clear of any cosmic fog or depersonalised abstractions. Nothing of the sort can be heard, as he focusses intensely and exclusively on the relationships of rhythm, harmony and melody. Roedelius conjures up their delicate timbres on synthesizer with the greatest of ease. The seasoned electronic musician would have found similar results beyond the reach of his good old Farfisa organ.
