|Ulrich Schnauss continues his walk from being a post-shoegaze electronic experimentalist to a full-fledged sonic orchestrator and musician with a new album due for release next year ... it's titled A Long Way To Fall, and is due out on Domino Records at an as-of-yet unspecified date in 2013. Check out the advance track above, it's the song that the album draws its name from. As for the post-shoegaze transition, Ulrich said, "throughout the last decade, I recorded three albums that were trying to translate the early 90's shoegaze aesthetic into an electronic context."
So he got busy expanding what he listened to, thinking about where to jump next, and laid a plan of attack.
"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."
