About Hans-Joachim Roedelius

Hello you!

Since I started to create music in 1968 with coffee percolators, feedbacks and my handmade bamboo flute, until now at the age of 86, I have followed my own way.

The Roedelius Patreon Project was created to enable me to put all of my energy into what I still have to do to „empty“ the cornucopia of what I have to give to the world as an artist.

Jeeeepppppeeeeeh!

I invite you to join this little community of Roedelius music lovers, to support my still lively creativity and livelihood. It would be an honor and a privilege to welcome you and get in direct contact with you as my Patron.

Read here my friends and musical partner´s - Tim Story´s - thought on the Roedelius Patreon:

Patronage in the arts is an old concept - it was especially crucial in past centuries when generous listeners couldn't buy a copy of a recording to help support the music and musicians they loved. So much art of all kinds wouldn't exist without the interest and generosity of benefactors.

But it's no less critical today, especially to those artists whose important and uncompromising work just happens to exist at the edges of, or just outside of, the marketplace.

My friend Joachim is one of those mavericks, and he could sincerely use our support. Like other visionaries of his generation, he has genuinely changed the culture, and enriched the world with his unique creations. Yet unlike others, he has steadfastly refused to bend his work to the marketplace, or exploit past glories to fund a lavish, or even comfortable lifestyle.
Achim is 86 years old, and is still creating vibrant music with the same sense of joy and exploration that he has since the 60's.

Groundbreaking music vision doesn't pay a pension, though. A handful of patrons investing a small monthly amount would do an enormous amount of good to enable Achim to do the work we all love, and materially reduce the stresses of the everyday. Joachim does not live in poverty, but as an artist, he has no financial cushion. He lives simply and modestly, and he's one of the most generous people I know.

This patronage is not a kickstarter campaign - there are 'perks' that all Roedelius fans will appreciate, but it is not an investment in a project, or the purchase of a product. It is an investment in the man himself, and his continued ability to create the music and art of his own choosing, just the way he always has.

As patrons, we would all, in a very real way, 'own' a little of his success, his livelihood and his happiness
.“ (Tim Story)

In this spirit, I want to thank Tim for his words and would love to welcome you as my Patron!

Yours,
Hans-Joachim Roedelius
