Curious Music is pleased to announce the limited-edition vinyl release of Inlandish by Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Tim Story. Heralded as "beautifully eerie, a world unto itself" by The Guardian, and named "CD of the Week" in a five-star review by The Sunday Times when first released in 2008, this third collaboration between electronic music legend Roedelius and the American composer and producer Story was immediately acclaimed as their most inviting work, an artful blend of electronic and acoustic sounds that create a warm, welcoming, and curious collection of pieces.

This first vinyl release comes in a high-quality limited edition run of 500 copies on double 180-gram translucent red vinyl in a deluxe matte finish gatefold sleeve. Included is a high-definition art print signed by Roedelius/Story, a previously unreleased bonus track "Ellipsish" from the Inlandish sessions, and new liner notes by Tim Story.

For over eight decades, Hans-Joachim Roedelius had found creative expression in numerous disciplines as a composer, musician, poet, sculptor, painter and singer with results that have inspired a generation of musicians and artists. Best known as a member of the highly influential electronic groups Cluster and Harmonia, Roedelius released his solo album, Durch die Wuste, in 1976, the first of many solo and collaborative works that has grown to number almost 200 albums. Roedelius continues to give performances world-wide and releases several albums per year in addition to work in theater, dance, painting and poetry. Curious Music will release Nordlicht, Roedelius' collaboration with Carl Michael von Hausswolff on vinyl and download in Spring 2017.


Hailed as "a true artist of the electronic medium" by Victory Review and "a master of electronic chamber music" by CD Review, Tim Story's work has garnered and international reputation for its haunting elegance and meticulous compositional detail. In addition to nine solo albums and many collaboration appearances, Story's work has appeared on numerous television and film soundtracks including Caravan, a feature-length documentary from the production company of acclaimed Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar. Story's music has been nominated for a Grammy award (for 1988's Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a children's recording with Glenn Close), and a NAIRD "Best Album" award (for Beguiled.) Also a noted producer, recent production credits include the legendary duo Cluster's final album Qua in 2010. Curious Music will release Story's Buzzle on double vinyl in Spring 2017.


Curious Music was founded in 1988 by Russ Curry, releasing numerous CDs and records, promoting tours and administering licensing and publishing agreements. The label worked primarily with artists (solo and in various configurations) such as Dieter Moebius, Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Conny Plank and Roger Eno. After a period of dormancy lasting almost 16 years, Curry rebooted the label in 2017 with a creating unique, high-quality limited-edition releases. The label places its artistic collaborators on equal footing with the audience, the unifying characteristic being a shared curiosity for exploring the creative moment. Our mission is to inspire and nurture the curious spirit - one curiosity at a time.
