Boomkat Product Review:
"The collaboration between Roedelius and Müller arose after they played a series of concerts together in Paris in 2012 where they mainly put on improvised performances based on Roedelius’s “paper” compositions. With Imagori, these two artists have created an album that adds a completely new chapter to their musical oeuvres. It is by no means a typical Christoph H. Müller album – and neither is it quintessential Roedelius music. For Müller, Imagori is a return to his roots as an arranger of beats and electronic music composer. With this album, Roedelius reaches a momentary pinnacle in his impressive list of late works, which have become ever more complex and exciting in recent years. After collaborations with Lloyd Cole and Stefan Schneider and concert series with Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air) and Christopher James Chaplin, Imagori captivates us with its audacious push towards accessibility. The album grew from short piano pieces and rhythmic experiments that originated from Roedelius’s archives. From there, the musicians worked continuously to create new compositions. They are astonishing pieces with remarkable structural form; as a work of origami, the next sound or element of each track often produces an utterly novel (sound) pattern. For example, the unique downbeat sounds of the track “Origami” are reminiscent of gems like “Atmosphere” from the album Harmonia & Eno ’76 Tracks and Traces. Like a welcome spirit, Brian Eno crops up with a spoken-word cameo on the track “About Tape”. “Himmel über Lima” draws inspiration from a ¾ Afro-Peruvian waltz rhythm, only to harmoniously work its way through a rhythmic shift that culminates in an almost classic Roedelius ambient sound."
