(Philadelphia 09-09-99) German electronic music legend Hans-Joachim Roedelius
and introspective pianist Tim Story will find common musical ground as they
collaborate to produce contemplative live improvisations at the Gathering in
Philadelphia at 8pm on Saturday, October 9th, 1999.

Hans-Joachim Roedelius, active in music for over thirty years, has a discography
of more than 80 releases. He is a pioneer in electronic music, not least for his
collaborations with such prominent musicians/composers/producers as Holger Czukay,
Dieter Moebius, Michael Rother, Conny Plank, Peter Baumann and Brian Eno. He has
worked as a soloist and founded several groups, most notably Kluster/Cluster and

Over his prolific career, Roedelius' musical output has covered a great deal of
sonic territory and emotional range: from deeply introspective to rhythmically
dancey, from experimental improvisations to heart felt vignettes, Roedelius is a
musician of depth and breadth. His influence on the genre of electronic music will
be felt for many years.

Tim Story's work has come to be known for its haunting elegance and meticulous
compositional detail. When writing and recording, he often spends months carefully
working and refining the shape of each composition until he achieves the desired
emotional and intellectual effect. His seemingly simple pieces distill harmonic and
melodic ideas that are often quite complex.

Story's intensely personal style as a pianist, synthesist and composer developed
from years of experimentation in his home studio, and a love of composition. The
careful juxtaposition of acoustic instruments with electronic textures, and an
inventive approach to composition are common threads running through most of
Story's work.

The Gathering with Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Tim Story will take place at 8pm on
Saturday, October 9th, 1999 at St. Mary's Church, 3916 Locust Walk on the
campus of The University of Pennsylvania in West Philadelphia, PA. Admission
at the door is $20. For Information call (610) 734-1009.

Gatherings are live concerts featuring musicians from the ambient, electronic
and space music worlds.  For more information:
