Privately released as a pair of LPs in 1981 & 1983, respectively, this set covers the early Electro-Acoustic work of German Composer, Guitarist, and Electronic Percussionist Klaus Röder, a student of Milko Kelemen & Günther Becker’s (more on Becker later in the series) & along w/ Gerhard Illi a member of the Free Jazz band Synthesis (not to be confused w/ the Arthur Blythe / Olu Dara / David Murray group of the same name) who formed an Electronic Music studio in Solingen to realize his idiosyncratic experiments in hyper-rhythmic, cut-up Musique Concrète in the mid-70s.

Meticulous, frenetic, and wryly humorous, the pieces here often show Röder’s dexterity as an instrumentalist (there’s a fair bit of Classical Guitar “Shredding” peppered throughout) but consistently show him as a master of assemblage; there’s an incredibly prescient sense of rhythmic “Programming” that, at times, presages dance/electronic music’s rush towards feverish complexity in the mid-late-90s.
