A pioneer in in the field of electronic music, Hans-Joachim Roedelius is considered one of the founders of contemporary popular electronic music. Remarkably prolific, Roedelius has appeared on well over 100 releases between his own work and collaborations.
Born on October 26th, 1934, in Friedenau/Berlin, he has lived in Baden, south of Vienna, since 1978 where he began his career as a professional composer/musician/writer in the late sixties, with sound-experiments described as “anarchic musical actionism.”
He has worked with choreographer Caroline Carlsen for the “Theatro e Danza la Fenice” in Venice, with Esther Linley, Mark Lintern-Harris and Joao de Bruco for the “Wiener Festwochen,” the “Donaufestival,” the “Eurokaz” in Zagreb, the “Szene Salzburg” and other Festivals.
He was a founding member of many experimental groups and projects including “Geräusche,” “Plus/minus,” “Per Sonare,” the free artslab “Zodiak” in Berlin, “Kluster,” “Cluster,” “Harmonia,” “Meeting Point Vienna,” “Friendly Game,” “Aquarello,” and “Tempus Transit.”
Well regarded as a collaborator, he has worked with many composers and musicians including Brian Eno, Holger Czukay, Michael Rother, Konrad Plank, Peter Baumann, Dieter Moebius, Fabio Capanni, Jurij Novoselic, Hiroshi Kobayashi, Andres Gil, Felix Jay, Nicola Alesini, Konrad Schnitzler, Alexander Czjzek, Eric Spitzer-Marlyn and many others.
In 2011, Roedelius and Dieter Moebius broke-off formal ties with one another and Cluster. Roedelius went on to form a new variant of Cluster called Qluster. The new lineup consists of Hans Joachim Roedelius and Onnen Bock.

X A M B U C A is a project formerly based out of San Francisco, CA now relocated to Asheville, NC. X A M B U C A is an ongoing multimedia collective of a constant Chandra Shukla with help from several other trusted authorities in the past; namely RK Faulhaber, Lux Vibratus (Chrome), Dave Jones (Sturgeon Hoof), Elisa Faires, Larry Thrasher, Todd Mellors(Saifir), M.S. Waldron along with the video expertise of Jason Scott Furr. The crew has been seen if not heard sonically feeding the beast known as X A M B U C A.
X A M B U C A is not limited to any particular style or category of music and would like to establish that it not be limited to the confines of musical categorization… experimental you say? Well, we’ve experimented and know the possibility of most usable sonic results. So has the rest of mankind now that we together shall embark upon the recurring footprints of human unoriginality.
