For my 40th anniversary this year, the release of my 40th solo album FATA MORGANA is due. This I would like to announce and describe it once with the appropriate words of Lambert Ringlage (Spheric Music):
“Robert Schroeder has always great sounds. Each of his last releases has an extraordinary space sound. As well this time this sound is combined with unusual impressive timbres. On Fata Morgana Robert takes us on a cosmic journey in the regions of illusions. We hear dreamy and supernormal sounds: sometimes chirping, sometimes imploding, sometimes bizarre, sometimes sensitive, sometimes sweeping. Choirs, percussive cymbals and toms, vocal effects, an electric guitar and pearling sequences are embedded in this wonderful dream cosmos.
And Robert takes his time to let these sounds develop and breathe. At least for the duration of this album your Fata Morgana is put into your music room. A grandiose work to dream and be filled with wonder!”
The release of my new album will be on the 1st of June 2019 on Spheric Music (SMCD-2040 / 7 Tracks / 65 Min)
This year it is exactly 40 years ago when the IC label was founded by Klaus Schulze.
In 1979 the IC label has started publishing the first albums, for example: Baffo Banfi, Din-A-Testbild, Wolfgang Bock, Arthur Brown/Vincent Crane, Richard Wahnfried, Mickey D’s Unicorn and P’Cock (with Thommy Betzler).
One of the first releases on Klaus Schulze's IC label was also my debut album Harmonic Ascendant.
Since then 40 years have passed ... and in early June of this year my 40th solo album will be released, of course on Spheric Music.
Having been discovered as an electronic "shooting star" in 1978 was not an illusion as you can hear my continued creativity on my new release which is my 40th album - just named FATA MORGANA.
Let us be curious.

in search of distant galaxies
In looking for new living space in distant galaxies, SPACELAND can help sweeten the time with pleasant spacy Electronics Music.
SPACELAND is very spherical synthesizer music, with fantastic sound impressions, extended and highly relaxing excursions into the depths of electronic music.
Elements of the typical Berlin School merge with soulful synthi melodies and modern sounds.
The album title Spaceland is the program: 70 minutes non stop spheresounds take you into unknown worlds..
On May, 20, 2018 my new CD album nEW fREQUENCIES Vol.3 will be released on NEWS-music. An electronic upbeat work with slightly higher bpm values, very varied, ingenious synth- and sequencer arrangements and an overall exceptional product in composition and production quality. Something Schroeder-atypical, although unmistakably Schroeder, however, so therefore published in nEW fREQUENCIES as separate series. You may be surprised.
For the upcoming New Year I wish you all
good luck, good health and a lot of good music.
And to greet the beginning of the year with a new work from me,
In January 2018 my 1981 work Mosaique will finally be released on CD-R.
Unfortunately, the da-music (rights owner) could not decide to release a CD until today. Now at least the right to sell the CD-R could be achieved.
Many thanks to the da-music.
Many have long been waiting for Mosaique as a CD release.
The Mosaique CD-R also includes a bonus track over 9 minutes long.
So, collectors and lovers, order the same in our shop.
Believed to be lost - a historical discovery
... a small sensation ... ...
The new CD release in September 2017
The world of the EM community speaks about it since the release of Harmonic Ascendant, my successful debut album from 1979. Prior to this first vinyl LP release (IC / WEA), I was already in 1978 in the studio for a first start of the production. Harmonic Decadence should be the original title of this recording.
This never released first recording was missed for a long time ... and was now found again and will be released shortly as CD under the title D.MO Vol.4 / Harmonic Decadence.
New interview on www.rockradio.de
On Friday, 10th of March 2017, the telephone interview of Kurt Mitzkatis with me has been broadcast on German Rock.de (www.rockradio.de).
The over 30-minute interview will be repeated on
Sunday, 12th of March 2017 from 23 to 24 hours,
of course on http://www.rockradio.de.
Have much fun.
Welcome to my brand-new homepage
Finally, the new website is ready. The amount of data was clearly thinned, better organized and packaged in an attractive manner.
The new website is now also "responsive", so it adapts automatically to all sizes (mobile phone, tablet etc.).
Particularly convenient is now the arrangement of all information, since these are now central in the "Shop" . If you are looking for product info, music demos, posters, photos, videos, interviews or anything else, you can find them in the shop as a link (right column) in the respective product block. Wide distances in the paths of confusing and rubrics are no longer necessary.
Nevertheless you can also find photos and videos in the separate area under "Fotos". This area is not yet finished completely.
The press can use the download-page to download product information and free-of-charge publication photos.
To the release of my new CD VELOCITY in February 2017, a short video trailer was created (click on the photo left). The impressive 3D animation presents the title of the CD and certainly does not represent the rest of the music on the CD.
VELOCITY is rich in variety, very spherical tracks, very experimental and above all exciting and relaxing, the 7 tracks of the 64 minutes long disc present themselves.
Further information will follow ...
I will receive
the "Schallwelle Award" as
honorary for my life work
I greet you all in the New Year
On March 18, 2017, the annual "Schallwelle-Award" will take place in the Bochum Planetarium (Germany).
This year I will receive the "honorary award for my life work".
After almost 40 years of Electronic Music, my new album VELOCITY will be released on Spheric Music in time for February 2017.
Maybe we will meet us in Bochum ...

New Album - new Website - new Interview
I am currently working hard on my new album, which will be released at the beginning of 2017 under the promising title VELOCITY on Spheric Music.
At the same time, however, a complete rework of this website is also being worked out, designed and programmed. Probably from January, this homepage will be there in new shine and in modern design for you there.
In the meantime you can already read here my current interview on AMAZONA.de (German language). A comprehensive interview about old times, how everything began, how it evolved and how it is today. Interesting information and photos on 32 pages. Have much fun.
German EM artist Robert Schroeder has finished his new CD-album Ambient Occlusion after three month of production. The 69 minutes lasting work provides very experimental and "electronic" Music.
For Robert this is one further milestone on his way back to the roots of EM.
Surprising effects, sharp contrasts, spherical excursions, extraordinary sequencer arrangements, new sound effects, dreamy, playful, exciting and very varying ... these are the ingredients of the new CD Ambient Occlusion, which apparently of course show Robert's facilities and sometimes you will be captured by the atmospheres of the early 80s.
Schroeder's music is incomparable and unique. It combines very spherical and surrealistic elements with beautiful concrete catchy melodies.

DREAM ACCESS – the NEW CD by Robert
This year EM artist Robert Schroeder looks back on a 10-year collaboration with the German electronic label Spheric Music (Lambert Ringlage).
Here are Lamberts personal impressions to Roberts new album:
"A true bath in sound and music, beautiful melodies, wonderful moods, partly experimental, from which melody and sequences emerge again, beautiful tom fills, many atmospheres and much reverb. Robert has added some extraordinary sounds and exciting elements into his work, which let the beautiful long dream phases come into play wonderfully. A varying and well done album."
