JUST ANNOUNCED - LIMITED EDITION INDIES ONLY 2CD –

100 ONLY FOR THE UK

The limited 2-CD includes alternate versions with added live drums

The new album by electronica producer Ulrich Schnauss and the Engineers guitarist Mark Peters

Destiny Waiving is released on Bureau B on September 24, 2021.



Hailing from Kiel in North Germany, its now 20 years since the electronica prodigy Ulrich Schnauss

released his debut album. His second, A Strangely Isolated Place cemented his reputation as both

a pioneer and an artist who routinely creates inspirational music that is adored by many. As a full

time member of Tangerine Dream since 2014, his lifelong passion for their work inspired a creative

resurgence for the band, resulting in their most successful new album for over 30 years, 2017s

Quantum Gate.



Liverpool born guitarist (and founder of the dream pop outfit Engineers) Mark Peters shared a

similar musical path, exploring ambient textures and effect laden songwriting via a series of

blissful albums for the band. In 2017 he released his first solo album, Innerland which was

enthusiastically received by BBC6 music and later included in Rough Trades top ten best

albums of 2018.



Destiny Waiving completes a collaborative trilogy that began with 2011s Underrated Silence

and followed by 2013s Tomorrow Is Another Day (Schnauss also became a full time member

of Engineers at this time). Initial sessions began at Ulrichs East London home studio in early

2017 and final mixes where completed there in late 2020. Despite its extended conception,

most tracks where com-pleted during 2017, in part informed by improvisational sets in London,

Dublin and St James Church in Birmingham (as part of the Seventh Wave electronica festival).



Despite these exercises in exploration, Destiny Waiving is perhaps the most focused and

concise collection of all three releases. Ranging in tone from precognitive foreboding to soaring

optimism, the album delicately hones a particular atmosphere that is unmistakable in their work.

While track titles such as The Supposed Middle Class acutely display a concern for society at large,

compositions and performances reveal a great deal more light and shade. This inherent balance is

a key facet of the duos chemistry, signposted by the titles of Chiaroscuro and Clair-Obscur and

the shifting moods within the tracks. For every rushing, upward sweep (Hindsight is 20/20, Circular

Time), contemplative countering is evident in tracks such as Words Can Be Dismissed and So Far,

The Moment.



As were all tired of hearing now, the global situation in 2021 is less than ideal, but if its any

consolation, Ulrich and Mark have fulfilled their destiny by creating a work thats both undeniably

potent and endlessly immersive.
