German electronic musician Ulrich Schnauss talks about religion, space music and a return to electronic sound in the Echoes Podcast.
Five years after his stormy, end-of-the-world electro-shoegaze treatise called Goodbye, German downtempo synth scientist Ulrich Schnauss returns with a new CD. Gone are the layers of distorted sound, aggressive grooves and over-driven guitar timbres that marked Goodbye. His latest album, A Long Way to Fall has a cleaner sound that harkens back to his earlier records like A Strangely Isolated Place. But run through the titles and it seems like the memories of a tormented life. In this weeks Echoes Podcast, I take a leap with Ulrich Schnauss.
