CHROME REIMAGINED is the accompanying remix album to Ulrich Drechsler's album CHROME. The wonderful neo-classical 13-part suite for strings, clarinets and live electronics composed by the award-winning German clarinettist, saxophonist and conceptionist.

Again the jazz and neo-classical musician invited both big names and young representatives of the Viennese, Berlin, Hamburg and Belgrade electro scenes to further process and refine his own orchestral compositions, to raise them to a whole new level and thus make them accessible to a whole new audience.

Based on this unusual, unique musical starting point, far more than "just" a remix album has has seen the light of day.
CHROME REIMAGINED is a real statement. A powerful, pathetic electro adventure between dancefloor and atmospheric ambient sounds.

Imagine Dignity

Let's be honest! NEVER before has the entire arts sector had to economise to such an extent in order to still have a right to exist. Art is no longer allowed to be "different" or tread unexplored paths. And if it does, it has to fit in with the cheery marketing schemes straight away. I know it may sound harsh, but this is exactly the situation in which large parts of art increasingly find themselves.

It's high time for a few changes. It's high time to restore dignity to the arts, even if it's going to be an uncomfortable journey.

For several years now, I have been working on ideas for the realisation of future-oriented, flexible, cross-genre and cross-style concert formats that can create a new infrastructure for music. I am in dialogue with like-minded people from the arts, economy, science, advertising, tourism and politics. Together we work on new solutions that create added value for everyone.

With the idea of "Imagine Dignity" I want to go now even one step further.

For me, music has always been perhaps the most subtle form of communication with people - always at eye level - always with the same mutual appreciation. It's all about dignity.

And it is precisely this quality that is increasingly being lost in an era of rampant digitalisation and mass marketing of music. It remains to be seen what impact this will ultimately have on our society.

With "Imagine Dignity" as the basic idea, over the coming years I want to bring to life together with my teams and musical colleagues partly new, partly old and forgotten, partly unconventional music formats that function exclusively and only in direct, shared communication with the audience. Everything will be based on interaction: deep listening situations, individual face-to-face concert situations, interactive genre-crossing multi-media dialogues etc. etc.

Let us treat ourselves, each other and art with dignity.

New curated concert series "The Shape Of Elements"

What is the world? What is man?

The Greek philosophers already attempted to answer this question by explaining the world in terms of four components: Water, earth, fire and air make us aware of the beauty of nature and our world, but also of its dangers.

For "The Shape of Elements", Ulrich Drechsler, a multi-stylist between jazz, neo-classicism and club music, has invited "classical" chamber music experts - Koehne Quartet, Eggner Trio, Plattform K & K, Eloïse Bella Kohn - meet four greats of electronics - Patrick Pulsinger, Christian Fennesz, Peter Zirbs, Dorian Concept.

In large audio-visual suites, in visual worlds generated by Ulrich Aschenbrenner, they will make water, earth, fire and air resound musically.

Tickets are already available HERE.

CHROME / dress rehearsal with live stream

Before Ulrich's CHROME goes into the studio at the end of May to record the album of the same name, which will be released in autumn, the band entered the stage of the MuTh, one of Vienna's most beautiful concert halls, for an early dress rehearsal lasting several days.

You can still watch here the complete streams from the rehearsals.

Mar 10, 2021

The "The Book Of Sounds"

For the new concert series in collaboration with the MuTh concert hall in Vienna, "The Book of Sounds", Ulrich Drechsler invites illustrious guests from the indie, pop and electronic fields to create imaginary soundtracks to individual sounds in spontaneous concerts. Small, intimate adventure journeys into the heart of music.

Because one thing is clear! Without the "material" sound, there would be no music at all - no matter whether classical, pop, rock, electronic, jazz, soul, pop, world etc.. Everything is sound. This basic, smallest building block is the key to why music touches us so emotionally, why we go to concerts, why music accompanies us throughout our lives and simply belongs to being human.

But what exactly is sound? Let's find out together.

Welcome to the book of sounds

LIMINAL ZONE RECORDS

Ulrich Drechsler's LIMINAL ZONE is growing and growing. Over the past years, three unique musical individual projects, the so-called Scopes, have been created in this unique world of sound: CARAMEL, AZURE & CHROME.

Starting with the remix album CARAMEL REIMAGINED, at least six larger and smaller releases are planned for the next two years. So nothing was more obvious than to found an own label for this - LIMINAL ZONE RECORDS. Ulrich continues his efforts to create a large network and creative infrastructure out of LIMINAL ZONE. May the exercise succeed.
