Editors’ Notes

Underrated Silence is a joint release of Mark Peters from the British dream-pop band Engineers and keyboard/laptop manipulator Ulrich Schnauss. The opening instrumental composition, “The Messiah Is Falling,” pushes the duo’s penchant for shoegaze forward with Brian Eno–influenced minimalism. Since Schnauss and Peters are keyboardists first and foremost, they’ve created a realm where clean-toned guitars serve as peripheral accompaniment.
