Some call it obsessed, some maniacal and some productive. For us, the fact that Berlin-based sound enthusiast Schneider TM, aka Dirk Dresselhaus, has already got his next album ready to go is merely good news. After experimenting with field recordings from construction sites next to his studio last year, he has moved on to a slightly more, er, traditional approach and Guitar Sounds was born. But don’t panic, this ain’t rock ‘n’ roll. It’s much more about experimental maneuvers with the good, old electric guitar. You can get an idea while watching the Yukikoh Okura-directed video premiere above for the first single, “Elefantenhaut”. Guitar Sounds is out next month via Bureau B.
