Ulrich Schnauss

Take a breather from reality with the electronic musician's otherworldly soundscapes, created from multilayered synthesizers, beats and ethereal vocals at this career-spanning retrospective.

Schnauss says, ‘I’ve always used making and listening to music as a way to escape – putting on headphones is a great way to leave reality behind for a while, reminding yourself why it still makes sense to carry on.’

These seminal electronic albums sound better than ever after they have been reworked and remastered – hear them live at this performance.

Ulrich Schnauss is joined on stage by visual artist and long-term collaborator Nat Urazmetova.

In Urazmetova’s live visuals the organic and synthesised, amorphous and elusive, fluid and uncanny coalesce, mutate and continuously evolve in the free-flow of improvisation. Through shifting the accustomed modes of perception, the visual performance threads the different narratives of seeing, sensing and relating to the sonic counterpart.
