Oct. 26, 1934. That’s the birthday of composer Hans-Joachim Roedelius. A founding father of both krautrock and ambient music since the 1960s — both solo and with everyone from Brian Eno to singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole to Kluster, his group with the late Dieter Moebius — Roedelius is making a rare stop in Ojai during a six-week, 18-date tour of North America that would be grueling for a musician half his age. That’s the thing about the avant garde. No one ever died young because of the lifestyle.
