Fabers Idee von „Earthbeats“ war es, einmal aus dem Genre klassische „EM“ auszubrechen. Die 12 Songs auf Earthbeat bedienen sich der Klänge unseres Planeten Erde. Asiatisch, Amerikanisch, Orientalisch, Europäisch. Alles hat seinen Platz auf diesem Album. Trotzdem bleibt Faber seinem Sound und seinen ganz eigenen Melodielinien treu und zeigt uns auf interessant-musikalische Weise seinen ganz eigenen Blick auf unseren Heimatplaneten Erde.

With “Dark Sun” MellowJet-Records is releasing the 11th album of the North German musician for electronic music "Faber". This time the music is darker and more spherical than usual. The 12 songs on the album do not fly so easy apart, as we know it from his recent albums. Everything has become more solid and mystical. Fans of Faber's music will agree with me when I say that the album "Dark Sun" sounds more grown-up. Faber plays more with the sounds: he mixed the known and the new skillfully together. Space rocking electric guitar solos, powerful pipe organs, strings together...

With the new album "Ways" of the musician Ronald Schmidt aka Faber presents another album with very catchy and playful melodies. Inspiration for the titles on Ways were, as so often, the discovery of new synthesizer and sound algorithms a passion of Faber. To combine elements of classic EM with his previous albums with new ideas and technologies, thus, allow the Faber-typical sound worlds arise. Faber's "Ways" surprises with references to Swing and church organ music and thus far untapped genre. Let yourself be surprised by a very varied album.

This time, Roland Schmidt aka "Faber" with his new album "Pictures" something personal. Images from his past, the theme for his new album. Although he expresses his own interpretations and intentions do not always directly, so let this be guessed quickly. He did not renounce his own harmonies and styles, his music since his first album "Space Fish" featuring: Faber never exaggerates and lets his music is always the needed air to breathe. On skilful manner, he gives each song a completely different look which makes for plenty of variety when listening and just fun. Despite his musical soul always...

„Different Worlds“ ist he theme of 2011th album of Faber. And the music keeps what the title promises: diversified electronic music. Once chilling, once electronic, once earthy, smooth, soft, coltish. Intended or not, even Oldfield- and Schulze-fans are announced sometimes. All songs have one thing in common: they are positive and spread high spirits. Dark sound scapes are not part of “Different Worlds”. Faber-typical, the music is carried by memorable melodies, which is good. “Different Worlds” is a summer-album for the fun of all electronic fans: on the beach, travelling or at home on your balcony. Enjoy it!

Real masterpieces of music always leave the handwriting of the artist. The musician Roland Schmidt who lives in Lübeck, Germany, achieved this already with his debut album. Now, five albums later, the tradition is being continued with “Universal Flow”. It sounds like Faber instantly. The musician adventures sound technical experiments and interrupts his album with different moods which only unfold in combination with traditional electronic music. Catchy melody patterns repeat unremarkably during the runtime of the album and fuse all together. Faber’s music hopefully never grows up which is fully appreciated.

With his second album "Spaceseed" Faber ties in with his style he impressively presented on his first album "Spacefish". Although "Spaceseed" appears more technoid and versatile. Mr. Schmidt successfully created an interesting symbiosis: songs, that initially sound like electronical sounds of power-generating band-legends, mutate to Faber's own sound-sphere after some minuted. I would like to describe "Spaceseed" as diversified, well produced space-album that offers, besides catchy
melodies the musical development of the artists. Recommended to all open minded friends of traditional EM...

More Info

Faber is a music project from Northern Germany. The man behind Faber is the musician Ronald Schmidt. After a few years of accordion and Hammond organ lessons at the beginning of the 1970s his great passion for electronic music began when he first heard Wendy Carlos and Tomita in 1972. In the year 1973 the first synthesizer, a Roland SH 1000, was acquired. The first recordings with an old tube tape recorder with multi playback procedure were made.
After graduating as an engineer of physical technology Faber has increased his recording studio since the early eighties. Today the recording studio with the exception of a Kurzweil K2000 and a Korg
MicroX - is software based and the music is realized with a PC and many software synths.

The musical influences for Faber are Tangerine Dream, Mike Oldfield, Klaus Schulze and Wendy Carlos. Faber, however, is at home in many musical styles. They range from spacemusic, lounge and chillout
to world music.
