Hi Mates!

I'm already flashed by the "orbital"-news & the new track....

...but here's a little note I found:

"Ulrich Schnauss’ new solo album, ‘A Long Way To Fall’, will be released in March/April next year, while a joint album with Mark Peters, ‘Underrated Silence’, will be released on Bureau in February." (http://www.clashmusic.com/feature/clash ... h-schnauss)

Well it seems April 2012 will be christmas & birthday in one! :-)

Here's the info and samples of the project with Mark Peters of The Engineers... Happy days.

ULRICH SCHNAUSS & MARK PETERS

Underrated Silence. CD, vinyl (180g), download. Out Feb 3rd, 2012


Ulrich Schnauss, master of shoegazer indietronica, and Mark Peters, bass player, guitarist and songwriter in the British band Engineers, present their first collaboration: They have crafted music which is enchanting in the truest sense of the word, shimmering sounds, floating echoes, rhythmically reverberant chords which wrap themselves around the listener, lifting him into a state of suspension and carrying him gently away.

The musicians: Ulrich Schnauss, born in Kiel in 1977, now residing in London, three solo albums released to date, Engineers keyboard player and an in-demand remixer (Mojave 3, Depeche Mode, Lunz/Roedelius, to name just a few). Mark Peters, born in Liverpool in 1975, bass player, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter in the British band Engineers, also three album releases to their name thus far.

The music: synthesizer, piano, guitar and drum computer, a reduced, yet bacchanal instrumental combination of ambient, electronica and shoegaze sounds.

Transporting the sound of shoegazer aesthetics into an electronic context – this is how Ulrich Schnauss once described his artistic goal. Influenced by bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Cocteau Twins and Chapterhouse on the one hand, yet wholly at ease with the electronica of bands like The Orb, Bionaut, Orbital, 808 State and unequivocally appreciative of veterans of the genre, Tangerine Dream or Manuel Göttsching for example. A brother in spirit of Robin Guthrie one might say, an apposite epithet for Schnauss.

His collaborative partner Mark Peters might also be considered his soul brother. Through his band, Engineers, he has similarly found success in following in the footsteps of his musical paragons. Engineers have released wonderful albums of dream pop, infused with the same spirit as the solo efforts of Schnauss. Peters and Schnauss have been friends for many years and over a year ago, Schnauss joined the ranks of Engineers.

For the past couple of years, they have been meeting up sporadically and making music. The fruit of these sessions served as the basis for the ten tracks on this joint album. More used to traditional songwriting, the working process was new to Peters. In the absence of conventional structures, the sole aim of creating an atmosphere, was an approach he was somewhat unfamiliar with, but one he found liberating. Working only at night was a decisive factor for Peters, lending the music a somnambulant quality – an effect that was intentional, striving to create something which cannot be ascribed to a particular musical category or zeitgeist. A challenge achieved with great success!

For Schnauss meanwhile, conjuring up an atmosphere through music is the most normal thing in the world: he creates music for those little escapes. Headphones on and slip away from reality. His highly praised debut album "Far Away Trains Passing By" from the year 2001 is a masterful demonstration of his art. He has remained true to his mode d’emploi ever since: elaborate electronic layers of sound, elastic drum computer rhythms and drifting synthesizer textures are typical Schnauss hallmarks. On this latest album, Schnauss brings the piano more into play than usual, which enhances the overall impression splendidly.

"Underrated Silence" is a quiet album for the most part. Its multi-layered fabric reveals something new every time one listens to it, a wealth of fresh discoveries, new rhythms emerging from the sound cloud, hitherto unnoticed melodies illuminating the background. Schnauss and Peters have crafted music which is enchanting in the truest sense of the word, shimmering sounds, floating echoes, rhythmically reverberant chords which wrap themselves around the listener, lifting him into a state of suspension and carrying him gently away.
