Schneider TM : The 8 Of Space

The new Schneider TM album “The 8 Of Space” is out on 9th of April via Editions Mego.

Pre-orders (LP/CD/Digital):

Schneider TM is the multidimensional music project of Dirk Dresselhaus which has been operating since the mid 90’s. His latest opus is also his first for release for Editions Mego.

With an extensive catalogue under his belt, one may wonder where this one takes us? The 8 of Space orbits the realm of “pop” more overtly than the project has done for 14 years, residing in the line of works that temporarily ended with “Sko- da Mluvit“ from 2006. In the age of scattered streaming listening habits The 8 Of Space champions the classic album format with connected tracks that act like chapters adding up to what could be framed as an ‘audio-movie’. The ‘plot’ revolves around a post-dystopian landscape which posits the make up of reality in the future.

The lyrics are a key component. Holistic, associative poetry acts as interactive trigger points for the mechanisms of exis- tence in times of a paradigm shift that are open to the listeners discretion. Autobiographical elements combine with sci- ence fiction and dreams, protagonists shift where the ‘I’ or ‘me’ is not necessarily the voice of the artist, nor even the same person. Alongside a more naturalised voice another protagonist appears represented by a processed voice. This character, named iBot, evolved around the start of the millennium and has appeared on some previous Schneider TM recordings. It can be seen as a post-human, or even a trans-human character, a combination of human & technology, uncertain of the future, which lends iBot it’s melancholic tone.

In the opening song “Light & Grace“ iBot appears in an advanced form of AI, which managed to hack & hijack a commer- cial space travel program (eg, Virgin Galactic) to invite those rich, who profited most from the destruction of planet earth, for a holiday trip into space to unknowingly fly them directly into the middle of the sun. In this episode it seems to have developed higher ethics than humanity itself with ambition to save the planet with as much of its cooperative life as pos- sible.“Light & Grace“ serves as an intro / opener for this album to be followed by 7 other tracks featuring different win- dows of consciousness represented by diverse characters & protagonists.

All the elements on The 8 of Space, the music, sounds, vocals and artwork fit together as a whole, creating a dazzling electro pop future questioning it’s own certainty. This is experimental electroacoustic pop music featuring glorious melodies dancing along human/machine voices, each track is a small universe that triggers the physical mind and tickles the subconsciousness.

“I find it fairly difficult to say something about how the music in this concert came about, cause we didn‘t plan or rehearse anything and hardly were able to hear each other on stage. Wherever it came from, the energy and course of this concert is very much based on group dynamics and an almost telepathic sort of communication, like a swarm of fish. When I mixed the sound later on in the studio I discovered a lot of weird things on the separate tracks: for example Kptmichigan‘s guitar signal is changing level for about +/-30 dB once in a while which is a lot and was probably caused by a broken microphone cable. Luckily the fucked up parts made the sound even heavier and more distorted instead of destroying it.” (Dirk Dresselhaus)

FUCHS & BECKETT : #fadbdd CASSETTE

new tape out now on the affiliated Litho label, with perforated 2nd inner flap for use as filter tips…for enhanced enjoyment of #fadbdd.

In 2015 Fuchs inherited a collection of reel to reel tapes and recorders, which had been stored by his friend and neighbour, Martin Ermisch, who had recently deceased at 91 years of age.

The recoders and tapes had belonged to Martin`s son, Bernd Jürgen, who had been a musician and studio owner in Kassel and had passed away in the 90`s.

The tapes contain days worth of unique material recorded in Jürgen`s studio, but also recordings of family events, fieldrecordings as well as radio broadcasts.

All source material from the #fadbdd series was destructively edited from the Ermisch Archive, manually looped and transfered to computer where the loops were then arranged and processed, resulting in warped and wonky, exotica leaning, hip-hop inspired ambience.

FUCHS & BECKETT : ANGELGRINDER

A few years ago I (Michael Beckett, aka kptmichigan) was attempting to strip the paint off of a cheap, cherry red Epiphone SG and annoyed by the slow progress, I decided to see if an angle grinder would speed things up. It did. So much so in fact, that I very quickly had a big dent in the neck of the SG.
This gave birth to the idea that it may be fun to play / destroy a guitar using an angle grinder, so I asked Kassel based film maker Jan Fuchs if he would be up for collaborating. We wanted to keep things as cheap as possible (ie. well under €50) so I built a bariton lap steel guitar out of a woodworm ridden plank and bits and bobs found in the cellar.
The guitar was open tuned and the sound, which afterwards was filtered and processed slightly to bring out the harmonic content, recorded via the pick up only.
The resulting 180 minute film is made up of multiple 12 minute loops which unnoticingly pulsate backwards and forwards, blurring beggining and end and soundtracked by the subdued drone of the angle grinder grinding away at the wood and metal of the lap steel in real time.

kptmichigan`s Black Wood out now !!!

Quite some time in the making (8 years. On and Off) and probably / maybe / not the most cohesive kptmichigan (aka Michael Beckett from Super Reverb, Schneider TM, the Beautiful New Born Children, ex-Tuesday Weld etc.) album yet.

7 songs “proper” (ie. with vocals) on the first side, which have been described as being something like a “classic” English pop songwriting (Kinks) and Krautrock interface.

5 instrumentals (ie. no vocals) on the second. No sequencing, lots of guitars which don`t sound like guitars, blurry, sprawling, dubby, hazy, from the hip.

Songs of loss (lots), love (quite a bit) and hope (a tiny bit).
