Peter’s House Music is the newest project of synth-meister, Silk Flowers and Psychobuildings member, Peter Schuette. Running at 45 rpm in a silk screened die cut jacket the debut EP titled “Jump” contains 7 transportive tracks of trance inducing wonder. Equally inspired by early electronic music pioneers of the German variety such as Cluster’s Roedelius, as well as the after hours DJ culture presently alive in NYC, Schuette constructs sculptures of sound for loud speakers. Schuette’s time spent with turntables and headphones as well as being a member of several NY improv bands such as Tiger Lib and Soiled Mattress and the springs, is clearly felt in these recordings. His music recalls what Holger Czukay of CAN referred to as “instant compositions”, with much of the music constructed through free improvisation and editing. Produced at home, with beats laid down and instruments applied in an impressionistic style Peter manages to reference the disparate music of 80’s synth bands like The Art of Noise and Cabaret Voltaire, minimalist composers, elevator music, the commercial schmaltz of late period Herbie Hancock and like the project name suggests HOUSE MUSIC of all stripes and colors.
