Listen: The Eighth Roedelius Cell

In March, we’ll install a special show called The Roedelius Cells, an eight-channel ring of speakers designed by composer Tim Story. For decades, Story has collaborated with Cluster and Harmonia cofounder Hans-Joachim Roedelius; not long ago, he decided to slice, edit, warp, and layer hours of improvisations by Roedelius into a new song cycle of piano and electronics. That result is then played through that circle of speakers, an invitation for the audience to wander within its sound field and float into a personal reverie. That’s the feeling of this video clip of the eighth Roedelius Cell, made by a professor named Bruce Walters. He links the architecture of Iowa’s Figge Art Museum to the music, and it’s mesmerizing.
