Ulrich Schnauss: First Solo Album In 6 Years


Posted at 3:05pm, 10/10/2012

German-born electronic artist Ulrich Schnauss is set to release his long-awaited new album A Long Way To Fall, his first solo album in six years, on Domino Records in early 2013.

His fourth album, A Long Way To Fall returns to the punchier rhythms and pronounced lead work of his landmark album, A Strangely Isolated Place, while incorporating some new textures and sounds from his earlier sonic explorations. Schnauss explains:

"Throughout the last decade, I recorded three albums that were trying to translate the early 90's shoegaze aesthetic into an electronic context. After finishing the last album, Goodbye, I felt a need for a change of direction. At the same time, my music taste was changing drastically. While I had spent a couple of years mainly listening to songwriting based music (a lot of 'indie'/band-type stuff), I was now rediscovering my love for electronic music based on more open structures. This provided the main inspiration of trying to record an album that would celebrate the synthesizer as the very capable musical instrument that it is, but without the need to disguise it behind a wall of echo and reverb. What satisfies me the most about this album is that I think I've managed to create a record that has a coherent, cohesive narrative."
