Ulrich Schnauss live at Mama Roux’s Birmingham

At once uplifting and otherworldly, the music of Ulrich Schnauss combines multi-layered synthesizers with beats and ethereal vocals, serving as an aural escape route from the trappings of reality. As Schnauss explains, “I’ve always used making and listening to music as a way to escape – putting on headphones is a great way to leave reality behind for a while, reminding yourself why it still makes sense to carry on.”

Today, his work expresses a renewed interest in more direct electronic sounds, and aims to substitute traditional verse-chorus-verse structures for more freeform atmospherics. Schnauss is also a talented remixer who has produced re-workings for the likes of Depeche ModePet Shop BoysTodd TerjeBryan Ferry and Matryoshka.

The live show is a live collaboration with Nat Urazmetova, a London-based visual artist who integrates the cross-disciplinary approach and lens media in her work. Nat is a University of the Arts BA Photography and Goldsmiths MA Digital Media graduate.
