"Staub" is the first new studio album of Spyra in four years. 'Wolfram Spyra' is a composer of electronic music, sound artist and inventor born in Eschwege in Germany. Sound is his art form. He has worked for film, television, theatre, dance and as sound designer. Styra began his career in the early 1990s constructing 'soundscapes' and installations around Germany. He has collaborated with a wide range of visual artists, musicians, producers and DJs. He has released several albums, starting in 1995 with "Homelistening Is Killing Clubs". Spyra's focus is on electronic music, seamlessly blending interesting samples, synthesizers, percussion and other elements together in unique ways. While sometimes experimental, most of his music has a certain accessibility in terms of the rhythmic and melodic components. Though frequently associated with the retro or Berlin School sound pioneered by Klaus Schulze and others, he uses modern ambient electronica elements extensively, creating his own rich sound that defies easy categorization.
SPYRA about the making of ‘Staub’ -
“Over the last 3 years I ‘ve been hanging around a lot in the US, England, Poland, Ukraine and at home in Germany, with a lot of time on my hands. I got to thinking about electronic music and its genesis, asking myself where it all started and where it’s at now.
After making 15 studio albums in 20 years, I knew that if I was going to record another one, I would simply have to make a change. Somewhere, at some time, I started experimenting with an old JUNO 6 and fell in love with sequences all over again. Apparently all ordered and logical, but then, the more I played and the deeper I listened, the more chaotic and unpredictable their sound became.
Late in 2013 I started to record my sessions. Always in the middle of the night while the city was falling asleep. Changing Cities Berlin, Warsaw, Uzhgorod, Cologne, filled my head with childlike inspiration. At last, I was back, dreamily, in my element.”
