Mule Musiq proudly presents 11 unreleased compositions by Hans-Joachim Roedelius produced between 1990 and 2001. All of them are pearls of electronic deepness that show another side of the man that lives in the little Lower Austrian town Baden. His famous ultra-sweet piano melodies can be heard -- but they are not the center of the productions; instead, here is a more electronic side of his genius. With a minimalistic approach, he lets synth melodies fly high while some droney, melancholic atmospheres swell in the background. Sometimes even slow-moving grooves hex the senses and his tracks get percussive in a more avant-garde way. All of these arrangements are poetic, sounding like sonic fables that leave much space for the listener's own imagination. Everywhere melodies balance and drift with no end or beginning in a cloud of synthetic, modern sounds. Roedelius' musical notions seem to reflect not only his unconscious soul, but also the soul of the time he lives in -- between 1971 and 2001, it must have been a introverted, meditative one, in which he dived deep into his electronic machines to pump out of them some timeless music that stays contemporary even during changing times. The album artwork comes from Emi Winter -- an artist from Oaxaca, Mexico. Her paintings point the observer towards the glamorous uncertainty of today, like an illusion that appears unexpectedly and is immediately buried by a new sensation. There is anarchy and arbitrariness in her colors and stroke of the brush and she avoids following the rules of painting.
