Stage is Steinbrüchel’s second full-length solo release on LINE. The album
contains 10 scenes that move between warm organic and melodic
digitalised sounds and cold crystalline-like sparks. The sounds and
compositions are even more detailed and have a more melodic approach
then previous recordings by Steinbrüchel. Single isolated and stretched
tones are structured together with smaller loops and particles of clicks and
noises into dense atmospheres. Parts of the sounds used in several
scenes are based on piano recordings by Bernd Schurer and/or guitar
recordings by Tomas Korber. For the first time Steinbrüchel has used and
processed recordings of acoustical instruments to this extent in his
compositions. Stage brings to life once again a collection of precise and
carefully composed structures and textures, which are formed into different
scenes where they all interweave with each other.

All the tracks were composed in 2005 for the interactive dance performance
HYBRIDOME, produced by Avventure in Elicoterro Prodotti a Ariella Vidach
AiEP. The tracks on the CD release are in a different order and are also
structured differently than the actual still unfinished dance performance.

Ralph Steinbrüchel studied Communication Design at Central Saint Martins
School in London, where he acquired a Masters of Arts and Design with
distinction. He now lives and works as a musician and graphic designer in
Zurich, Switzerland. In 2002 his composition zwischen.raum [domizil] was
distinguished with the Max Brand Award for Electronic Music
[phonoTAKTIK.02 Festival, New York]. In the same year he received a
compositional scholarship from Pro Helvetia, Arts Council of Switzerland, to
work on his release Circa [LINE, US]. Last releases were the solo-CD
Skizzen [Binemusic, Germany], the collaboration Status [12k, US] with Frank
Bretschneider (raster-noton) from Berlin and the composition Opaque
[Room40, Australia] together with five additional reinterpretations.
