Solitaire - Elmar Schulte
« on: March 18, 2009, 07:56:06 AM »
Hi,

Does anyone knows anything new about Solitaire & Elmar Schulte ?
The man has been very discreet since his last release "Nocturnes".
There's a web site that sums up the band's discography, but no email or way to contact Mr Schulte...
Anyone can help ?

The last I heard (which was quite a few years ago), Elmar was doing techno/club music.  I believe on that website there was an announcement hinting there may be a followup to "Nocturnes."  You might want to try contacting Rudiger Gleisberg via his website, who worked with Elmar quite a bit and might know something.  Very nice guy, too.   :)

Hi Elmar,
Nice to see you here. Thanx for your response !
I'm glad to see and hear that you're still active.
I like "Himalaya" and "Intruder" tracks.
I have Ritual ground, Fearless and Nocturnes.
I wonder if there is any chance to get copy of the previous works, Altered states and Plains and skies. Maybe you'll release them back again too ?

I'm sure this is probably way too late, but I just registered and saw this post.  I've got all of Solitaire's albums and while Fearless is phenomenal in its own way, I find Plains and Skies to be my absolute favourite.  Amazing.  I wish Mr. Schulte would put out a new album... for a while there was a single called "Seven Gates" or something up on his myspace and it was... breathtaking... Sensational music and I love it...

Solitaire was a project that produced some of the best ambient of the 90's; unfortunately they seemed to remain in (undeserved) relative obscurity, possibly due to their releases not being widely available or lack of label support(?)  Whatever the reason, it's criminal! :-)

I hope the reissues do happen and that the unreleased music over the years is finally made available as a CD album.
