Ulrich Schnauss - a German electronics producer - I discovered by chance through probably Soulseek, a music publishing web services that was frequently used by electronic music producers to test their new productions with their audience. He started releasing under his own name in 2001 and gives us every 2 to 3 years an album with his new works. In parallel he also releases updates of older albums, extended versions with new or remix tracks. His productions are minimal, ambient, atmospherical and 'floating' in its own way. Some call it ethereal electronic music.
His first album I share with you today "Far Away Trains Passing By", originally released in 2001. This album - supposedly - became 'popular' mostly through word-of-mouth over the years after the release. Well, my experience was the same, since when I discovered it on Soulseek and talked about this one with other music fans, they all never ever heard of this guy. But some of them loved the album as much as I did and started listening and investigating more about who this Ulrich is, and obviously talking about him to others.
The album I share with you is an extended version released in 2008. The original release had 6 tracks, the first extended version was released for the USA market, with an extra CD and 6 more tracks, this was in 2005. Three years later an extended version - based on the US version - was released in Europe with 1 additional track on the 2nd CD making it 13 tracks of almost heavily music!
