About Ulrich Schnauss
Throughout his multi-decade career, German musician Ulrich Schnauss has bridged beat-driven electronic production with the swirling textures and melancholy but hopeful melodicism of shoegaze and indie rock. Working under various electronic styles since the mid-'90s, Schnauss developed his signature style with acclaimed releases under his own name such as 2001's Far Away Trains Passing By and 2003's A Strangely Isolated Place, which established him as one of the most notable indie electronic artists. He remixed or produced artists ranging from Mojave 3 and Asobi Seksu to Sia and Depeche Mode, and performed as a member of the indie rock bands Longview and Engineers. Since the early 2010s, he's recorded albums with Engineers' Mark Peters (such as 2013's Tomorrow Is Another Day) and Jonas Munk, aka Manual (including 2021's Eight Fragments of an Illusion). Schnauss has also been a member of electronic music pioneers Tangerine Dream since 2014.
