Schuetze, Paul

Multi-instrumental sound explorer, experimentalist, composer, born in 1 May 1958 in Melbourne. He featured in the Australian experimental industrial band Laughing Hands circa 1979 to '82 before embarking on a solo career. His interest in ancient and ethnic musical cultures strongly features in his music which can vary from ambient through to tribal, industrial and techno styles. He has also scored a number of film soundtracks, and worked in a few alter-ego incognito projects.

Paul Schuetze - Deus Ex Machina

Artist: Paul Schütze
P: 1989 / 1997
Masterful debut full-length from Australian composer Paul Schütze.  Dark, drifting synths enveloping abstract jazz fusion and clattering percussion, with fragmented voices periodically flashing into earshot. The kind of stuff that sounds best when it's late and you're really, really... sleepy.

Paul Schuetze - Regard: Music by Film

Artist: Paul Schütze
P: 1991
Schutze's early artistic success in his native Australia was as a film score composer, and the three major pieces on this CD ("Tiga," "The Tale of Ruby Rose," "The Last Tall Forests") plus an excerpt from a fourth piece, "D.E.M.," were presumably compositions for films. Much of Schutze's music on this CD can be loosely affiliated with the ambient genre, although the opening piece, "Tiga," aboots the gently overlapping keyboard patterns along with a subtle but propulsive groove. "The Tale of Ruby Rose" consists of 13 quite lovely ambient miniatures for synthesized keyboards, all wispy and ethereal in the best sense, with voicings that sometimes suggest mandolin choruses, and sometimes chimes, gongs and pipe organs. Schutze's ambient work, here and elsewhere, often has an edge, and seldom degenerates into sentimentality. The closest thing to new age prettiness in this set is the Harold Budd-like "In the Absence of Angels," but it is redeemed by a deep, underlying sadness. Another set of seven pieces, "The Last Tall Forests," relies more on long tones and deep reverb, but has a pervasive melancholy characteristic of Schutze's more muted work. The last piece in the set, "The Ash Plain," is downright scary, with a ponderous brass ensemble sound and ominous, thudding drums. The CD closes with "Shark Sex," a jazzy, floating piece with prominent electric bass and a slide guitar sound (however it's made), which is appropriately slinky and dangerous. A good collection overall, which shows off Schutze's keyboard versatility and ear for tonal color.

Paul Schuetze - Third Site

Artist: Paul Schütze
P: 1999
The installation work of the same name featured in Sonic Boom at the Hayward Gallery  London in the year 2000. The music
has only been performed twice and this release documents the second of those
concerts. Recorded during the Impact Festival in Utrecht in 1999, the line-up here is
the same as that on the original release with only Thomas Köner's voice being flown in
from tape. We have had to edit around some of the more exuberant contributions from
the audience but this is essentially as heard on the night. We are pleased to make this
recording available.
