Police In Cars With Headphones ‎(Ulrich Schnauss) – Wegwerfgesellschaft

Artist: Ulrich Schnauss
P: 1996
LTD

Harking back to Ulrich's fledgling recording days, this trim (in number rather than duration) collection of tunes, under the most intriguing of monikers, failed in its bid to secure record store shelve space when the distribution deal went awry.
How tragic is this? Well, quite frankly, nothing short of calamitous I would proffer.
At such a time, Ulrich was already working on material under the guise of View To The Future, but it would be his recordings as Police In Cars With Headphones that would emerge as finished album product. Though not wholly seminal, Wegwerfgesellschaft (just rolls of the tongue, doesn’t it?) is an utterly absorbing, strangely hypnotic and guilefully crafted opus that belies the composer’s (very) tender years - just nineteen at the time! Whereas Ulrich would go on to release full-length ambient / drum n bass releases, as the previously mentioned View To The Future (1997), as well as Ethereal 77 (1999), and garner commercial success with recordings under his own name, I feel that Wegwerfgesellschaft is worthy of the title of Landmark within his repertoire. At least for the time being.
Album opener, "Weihnachtsgeschenke Für Die Familie" (what is it with the titles?) begins as an edgy piece that in time smooths out to great melodic effect - for me the album's showpiece. By far and away the most commercially accessible track on offer here is "Tetra Pek" - industrial, metallic beats (a la Kraftwerk) swathed in a warm, velvety lushness. In stark contrast, "Death Of A Junk Colibri" might well send shivers down your spine with its overt sinisterness.
I wonder, what do police in cars with headphones really listen to...? Well, they'd probably listen to this music if they could, but the crime is that it's not available... However, as the Ulrich Schnauss fanbase continues to swell, it's only a matter of time, I feel!

Here the last copies!

Quaeschning + Schnauss - Synthwaves

Artist: Thorsten Quaeschning + Ulrich Schnauss
P: 2017

Pure Berlin-school bliss from synthmeisters Thorsten Quaeschning and Ulrich Schnauss. Synthwaves pays homage to the masters of the past, yet feels fresh and enchanting. Crisp, interlocking patterns are modulated and mutated with mathematical precision into eight pieces of pristine, post-kosmische sounds to float away to. During two intense weeks in Berlin, Quaeschning and Schnauss both students of the great, late maestro Edgar Froese locked themselves in a studio full of vintage synthesizers, analog sequencers and drum machines, and the result is a gorgeous set of purely electronic music. As the title suggests, a bit of tongue-in-cheek playfullness was allowed during the process however, all of these pieces sparkle with real emotion and warmth. As with the finest Tangerine Dream soundtracks it's the kind of music that paints vivid pictures on the canvas of the listeners mind: synth plucks hang in the air like glaring neon in metropolitan dusk, and zero-gravity pads hover like ghostly morning mist travelling over empty coastlines. Poly-rhythmic patterns are allowed to build - slowly but steadily - bar after bar, until synth-Satori is reached. By the time the last track on this album runs out, it's obvious these two producers have themselves become masters of their craft.

Ulrich Schnauss + Mark Peters / Pyrolator - Spilt EP
Artist: Ulrich Schnauss + Mark Peters / Pyrolator
P: 2012
LTD 500

The first collaboration between Ulrich Schnauss & Mark Peters, “Underrated Silence” has been one of Bureau B’s most successful releases so far. Ulrich Schnauss (famous for his three solo albums as well as for his remix work) teamed up with Mark Peters (bass player, guitarist and singer of the British band Engineers) to create a bacchanalian instrumental combination of ambient, electronica and shoegaze sounds. “Balcony Sunset” is a track from this session that was not released on the album. Kurt “Pyrolator” Dahlke is one of the key figures in the late 70’s to late 80’s German music scene. He is the co-founder of the influential Ata Tak record label and has been a member of legendary bands such as D.A.F. and Fehlfarben. “Neuland” was his first solo album release in 24 years! The track “Sonnenaufgang 4:46 Uhr” is an outtake from sessions for that album.

Ulrich Schnauss - A long Way to fall

Artist: Ulrich Schnauss
P: 2013

After a six-year absence from the New Releases shelf at your local record store, German shoegaze/electronica maestro Ulrich Schnauss is back with a new album called A Long Way to Fall. Due for a mysteeeeerious early 2013 release, Schnauss’ latest will come out via Domino in the US and through his own Scripted Realities label in the rest of the world. On his fourth album, the My Bloody Valentine-lovin’ bleep-blip-blopper is all about the synthesizer. According to Schnauss: “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.”

That’s right, Ulrich! Say it loud! We’re synthesizer lovers and proud! But the album isn’t just about synths and shoegaze and blip bloop blops. No! It’s also about art. And not just musical art. For Schnauss’ latest, the London-based photographers/visual artists Nat Urazmetova and Anastasija Nikitina have crafted visual works to go along with the tracks “A Ritual in Time and Death” and “I Take Comfort in Your Ignorance.” The latter track is also coming out as a single, with remixes by Tycho and ASC. As Missy Elliot once said, “Come, get your art on.”

Ulrich Schnauss - A Strangely Isolated Place

Artist: Ulrich Schnauss
P: 2003

What is there left to say about this man from Berlin? The buzz was amazing. People were calling in every day asking when Ulrich's follow-up to "Far Away Trains Passing By" would be ready. And it took him some time. But it was worth the wait. We received maybe one track per month and slowly, very slowly the new album began to take shape. We did not expect anything. How? His debut album under his real name had always seemed perfect, but Ulrich managed to take it further. And further. And further.
"A Strangely Isolated Place" is definitely bigger, deeper, more dirty even, contains more vocals and shouts its love for guitar pop straight into your heart. This guy is mad.

Ulrich Schnauss - Goodbye

Artist: Ulrich Schnauss
P: 2007

Having left an indelible imprint on the Electronic Music world with not one, but TWO bone fide and certified masterpieces (2001's sublime "Far Away Trains Passing By" and 2003's staggering "A Strangely Isolated Place") German synthesist Ulrich Schnauss finally returns after an agonizingly long wait with an album of Brand New material...
It has been six years since the world was first introduced to Schnauss' wonderful blend of modern electronic textures and shoe gazer aesthetics (a combination that has seen his work receive critical and fan acclaim worldwide) and new album "Goodbye" looks set to further cement this reputation. Taking three solid years to produce, "Goodbye" finds Schnauss pushing his musical ideas and huge-sound aesthetic to the max, merging songwriting and indie elements with lush, melodic and utterly absorbing electronic music.
The ambient tracks are more spacious, the songs and melodies even MORE memorable, the multi-layered, guitar-heavy tracks more rackingly glorious. From the obliterating rush of "Medusa", to the cloud busting dream-pop of "Stars" (performed with long-time collaborator Judith Beck) "Goodbye" at times features 100 different audio tracks playing simultaneously on a unified, irresistible and captivating release...

Ulrich Schnauss - Quicksand Memory EP

Artist: Ulrich Schnauss
P: 2007

So finally, after literally years of waiting, new material from everyone's favourite purveyor of epic shoegazing electronica is back. He hasn't come back alone though - in the time since 'A Strangely Isolated Place' he has managed to pick up a few good friends, notably Rob McVey from Manchester's Longview (a band who now count Ulrich among their number!) and very surprisingly, Cocteau Twins mainman himself Robin Guthrie! Yes the rumours are true, and after years of fending off (or most probably, welcoming) comparisons to the great Cocteau Twins, Mr. Schnauss has cajoled the man himself into giving his own takes on two tracks from 'A Strangely Isolated Place'. I'll start with the new material on offer here, and the record kicks off with Rob McVey's version of 'Look at the Sky', a track taken from Ulrich's imminent full length 'Goodbye'. The first thing you might notice is that the sound is notably less 'electronic', with fat distortion, live-sounding drums, guitars and gauzy vocals taking centre-stage and those signature synthesizers almost nowhere to be seen. I suppose this is the direction Ulrich has been heading all the time though, taking his sound a little closer to 1990 every year, moving further into the den of purist shoegazing classics, and 'Look at the Sky' easily fits in snugly with the best of Lush, Curve and others from the era. Similarly, the second track here 'Medusa' (one of the highlights from the new album) goes for a full-on 'Loveless'-style assault on the ears, all bendy distorted melodies and whispered vocal parts. This is a track that simply has to be played at almost uncomfortable volumes, and reminds me of all the times i was crushed onto the railings at the front of gigs - you'll know what I mean when you hear the tracks. The EP is nicely rounded off by the two stunning Robin Guthrie remixes, and in true Cocteau's style he pulls the original tracks ('Gone Forever' and 'On My Own') down to a haze of romantic guitars and reversed voices which build into reverberating Cocteaus-esque pop crescendos. It's almost like they were never gone, and I challenge any self-respecting Cocteaus aficionados not to get tearful on listening to these tracks. What more can I say... an essential EP purchase in every way, and only one of these tracks is actually going to end up on the album (and this version is an 'edit' anyway), so what are you waiting for?

Ulrich Schnauss - Underrated Silence

Artist: Ulrich Schnauss & Mark Peters
P: 2012

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.
