Schneider TM : The 8 Of Space

The new Schneider TM album “The 8 Of Space” is out now on Editions Mego.

LP / CD / Digital available here:

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.

TÜRKEN, FEUER – Hörspiel des Jahres 2020

TÜRKEN, FEUER

von Özlem Özgül Dündar
Regie: Claudia Johanna Leist
Komposition: Schneider TM (Dirk Dresselhaus)

Dramaturgie: Gerrit Booms
Produktion: WDR
Länge: 53’28‘‘
Erstsendung: 18.04.2020

Podcast / Download: https://ww.darstellendekuenste.de/id-2020-224.html

Das intensive Hörspiel wurde von der Deutschen Akademie der Darstellenden Künste zum Hörspiel des Jahres 2020 ernannt. Es erzählt vom Brandanschlag von Solingen 1993 und von den betroffenen Menschen. Wie lässt sich sowas erfassen?

Am 29. Mai 1993 kommen in Solingen fünf Menschen türkischer Abstammung bei einem Brandanschlag ums Leben. Eine von ihnen ist Gürsün İnce, die sich für ihre dreijährige Tochter opfert, als sie mit ihr aus dem Fenster springt. Das Hörspiel gibt ihr eine Stimme. Ihr und weiteren Frauen: die Mutter eines mutmaßlichen Täters, eine zweite Tote und eine Überlebende, sie alle kreisen in Gedanken um die Katastrophe und das Leben mit dem Schmerz. Der Fenstersprung, die Angst vor dem Feuer und das Schweigen, bis die Polizei eintrifft: Die Frauen bleiben in ihrem Erleben gefangen und suchen trotzdem nach Austausch, Begegnung und der Möglichkeit eines Gesprächs.

“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)

KPARR DIRÈ – Balafon Music from Lobi Country (LP+DVD / download)

KPARR DIRÈ – Balafon Music from Lobi Country
(Edition Telemark / MWM)

LP+DVD / download AVAILABLE NOW at MWM bandcamp !

LP plus DVD with full-length movie (125 minutes) of Balafon music of the Lobi
people, recorded in and around Gaoua, Burkina Faso, on a two-week journey in
June 2014
, by Dirk Dresselhaus (Schneider TM), Julian Kamphausen and
Arved Schultze. Packaged in a full-colour gatefold sleeve with DVD slide, with
numerous photos and an extensive interview with Dresselhaus, released by Edition Telemark in cooperation with MirrorWorldMusic.

ALL PROFITS generated with downloads & physical formats at MWM bandcamp go to the involved musicians in Burkina Faso !

The Lobi are an ethnic group of about 180,000 people living in southern Burkina
Faso and bordering regions. The primary instrument of their traditional music
is the balafon, played solo or in a duet, usually accompanied by
percussionists. Lobi balafon music serves as a complex language for
communication with the audience but also with ancestors and spirits. Different
kinds of music are used for different purposes and social atmospheres (birth,
death, joy, hunting, war, etc.)

At its core, this music is hundreds of years old and knowledge of its mastery
is passed on from generation to generation, with different styles emerging in
different regions and outside influences picked up on the way. The first
well-known recordings of Lobi balafon music were made in 1961 and published on
the Ocora LP “Musiques du pays Lobi”. While the tunes heard there clearly show
their ancient roots, the music on this release is not isolated from current
influences and carries traces of modern African electronic pop music and
Contemporary R&B that is widespread in the region. This has led to a new
minimalist, poly-rhythmic and breakbeat-laden style prominent in Gaoua, to our
knowledge recorded here for the first time. Yet the pieces are the same
traditionals, played differently from generation to generation and from day to
day.

Musicians on the LP are Martin Kensiè (Da Toh Alain) and ensemble, and Palé
Goukoun. Their fathers – Kambiré Tiaporté and Palé Tioionté, respectively – had
been recorded in the 1990s for the Ocora CDs “Pays Lobi, Xylophone de
funérailles” and “Pays Lobi, Xylophones du Buur” that served as the starting
point for this journey. The DVD features a full-length movie by Arved Schultze,
documenting the trip through various localities and villages, with numerous
performances also including other musicians.

KPARR DIRÈ – Balafon Music from Lobi Country – long story short
(by Dirk Dresselhaus, Berlin 22.02.2020)

When I entered an Afro shop in the train arches near Alexanderplatz in Berlin in spring 2003, I had no idea what this moment would trigger in the years after. So I entered this shop and saw two strange percussion instruments that were unknown to me: a kind of prehistoric xylophones with a lot of calabashes underneath. The nice owner of the shop explained to me that they were balafones that he had brought from an old man in northern Ghana. We quickly agreed and I bought one of the two instruments that I used for the next few weeks while recording a new Schneider TM album. After a while I got curious and went to the world music department of Dussmann, a book and media retailer, to research balafon music from West Africa. Much of the music from Ghana, Ivory Coast etc. I found was great, very pentatonic and sometimes a bit cheesy, but it was only when I discovered the two Ocora releases of Lobi music from Burkina Faso (“Pays Lobi, Xylophone de funérailles” and “Pays Lobi, Xylophones du Buur”) that it really blew me away. The open (dis-)harmonies, very similar to the tuning of the balafon I had at home, and syncopated polyrhythms moved me deeply and were somehow the most futuristic thing I had ever heard. In the years that followed, I often incorporated the two CDs into my DJ sets and mixed some of them with drone & noise music, which somehow complemented each other perfectly. Like two long lost relatives who suddenly see each other again.
In 2013 I received a call from Arved Schultze and Julian Kamphausen regarding a possible study trip to Africa, funded by the TURN fund of the German Cultural Foundation, to look for musicians or artists with whom there should subsequently be an African-German cooperation as a cultural exchange. I immediately thought that we absolutely have to go to Gaoua, Burkina Faso, to find out if the Lobi musicians were still around whose music I had sucked in all the years before and about whom you could otherwise hardly find any information on the Internet etc. The two initiators were immediately enthusiastic and in June 2014 the trip took us via Bamako (Mali) and Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso) finally to Gaoua:
 TRAVEL BLOG

As luck would have it, my sister knew a university friend who was to build a street for an NGO in Gaoua in 2001 and since then had a good friend in Burkina Faso who had lived in Gaoua for a long time and worked there as a German teacher. We met this friend, Issaka Yameogo, at a bus station on the way to Gaoua, and on the same evening he introduced us to his old friend Somda Desiré, who was very well connected in the capital of the Lobi people and in turn directly brought us together with the balafonist Martin Kensiè. Martin turned out to be the son of one of the musicians who unfortunately had already died at that time and who had played on the Ocora CDs from the 1990s. All of this happened immediately after arriving in Gaoua and was the start of two intense weeks in which we were introduced to the music and culture of the Lobi and Dagara people and deep friendships were formed. This was when the recordings took place that are now released as LP & DVD by Edition Telemark / MWM and that originally were intended only for documentation as preparation for future collaboration. Since there never was a collaboration between Martin Kensiè, his ensemble and us experimental musicians from Europe due to a lack of follow-up funding, we have at least managed to make these unique and magical recordings available to the public after a long period of preparation.
