Ulrich Schnauss live at Mama Roux’s Birmingham

June 12, 2017 in News

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.

German-born electronic artist Ulrich Schnauss announces a run of UK and Ireland dates next spring. The live shows will coincide with the release of his fifth studio album which will come out early next year.

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.’

In addition to recording his own album, Ulrich has been working on the new Tangerine Dream album also due for release in 2016. Ulrich is continuing the work of the late Edgar Froese who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Ulrich will be joined on stage by visual artist Nat Urazmetova. Nat has been working with Ulrich for the past few years, adding a powerful extra dimension to live performances.

Electronic pioneer Ulrich Schnauss heads to Hare & Hounds Birmingham in March!

Ulrich Schnauss was born in the northern Germany fishing port, Kiel, in 1977. During his formative years he grew a love for a broad spectrum of music ranging from My Bloody Valentine to Tangerine Dream, Chapterhouse to early bleep & breakbeat tracks. He moved to Berlin in 1996, by which time, Ulrich’s musical output had already become prolific, with a variety of pseudonyms (most notably View to the Future and Ethereal 77) veering from techno to drum and bass via electronica.

His debut album under his real name established his pedigree as an outstanding electronic composer, but somehow he managed to take it further by developing his interest in songwriting for electronic music, born of his love for such giants of the independent world as My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields and Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie. From this humble conception came forth a second record of surprisingly rare emotional power, titled ‘A Strangely Isolated Place’.

Since the release of both albums Ulrich has been asked to work with and remix a host of artistes including: Mojave 3, Longview, Johannes Schmoelling, The Zephyrs, Lunz (Rodelius), etc. New album ʻA Long Way To Fallʼ is due out in the UK on January 21st 2013.

Ulrich will be accompanied on stage by London-based visual performance artist Nat Urazmetova.
