Cluster's Roedelius Forms New Group with Gotan Project's Christoph Müller
German electronic music pioneer Hans-Joachim Roedelius has been in the game for half a century, but continues to push himself with solo work and band endeavours. He recently shared a new video from his Qluster project, and now he's announced plans for a new collaborative group.

Roedelius has teamed up with Christoph H. Müller of the Gotan Project, and the two have recorded a full album together under the name Mueller_Roedelius.

The release is called Imagori and features 10 new compositions from the pair. There's also a high-profile guest in one Brian Eno, who appears on the song "About Tape."

A press release offers up the following description of Imagori:

Beat-oriented compositions meet melodic improvisations. The articulation often revels in simultaneous legato and staccato elements; Müller's beats create a framework with a straight-out pumping downbeat groove, while Roedelius's piano somnambulistically moves through the tracks. The upshot is an album that comes across as self-contained and pleasantly cohesive — each and every second is enthralling!

Imagori arrives on September 4 via Grönland. Album track "Time Has Come" can be streamed below.

Meanwhile, Qluster's new Tasten arrives on July 10 via Bureau B.
