Peter's House Music is an accumulation of music recorded by Peter Schuette at his home recording studio in Greenpoint Brooklyn. Also a member of Silk Flowers, Psychobuildings, and formerly Soiled Mattress & the Springs and Usa is a Monster, PHM has been Peter's outlet to explore some of his previously unaddressed influences, the greatest being D.J. Harvey's regular dance night at Love in the West Village and its unrestrained positivity. Mixing house beats, Depeche Mode-style FM keyboard sounds, piano, guitar, etc., Peter starts with elements of electronic dance music and writes compositions that bridge the gap between Roedelius' (of Cluster) slow and thoughtful Selbstportrait series, early 80s electro-dance and R&B, Dam Funk, and whoever else escaped from his subconscious at the time of recording.






12” EP



Running at 45 rpm in a silk screened die cut jacket the debut EP titled “Jump” contains 7 transportive tracks of trance inducing wonder.  Equally inspired by early electronic music pioneers of the German variety such as Cluster’s Roedelius, as well as the after hours DJ culture presently alive in NYC, Schuette constructs sculptures of sound for loud speakers.  Schuette’s time spent with turntables and headphones as well as being a member of several NY improv bands such as Tiger Lib and Soiled Mattress and the springs, is clearly felt in these recordings.  His music recalls what Holger Czukay of CAN referred to as “instant compositions”, with much of the music constructed through free improvisation and editing.  Produced at home, with beats laid down and instruments applied in an impressionistic style Peter manages to reference the disparate music of 80’s synth bands like The Art of Noise and Cabaret Voltaire, minimalist composers, elevator music, the commercial schmaltz of late period Herbie Hancock and like the project name suggests HOUSE MUSIC of all stripes and colors. 


“Instant composition” electronic beats and uptempo, public access channel music beds from Silk Flowers’ Peter Schuette. It’s pretty lush, billowing material, full of elastic computer bass and some creative, “Risky Business” style synth leads...”

“Peter Schuette (of Silk Flowers & Psychobuildings fame) sets it to smooth control on this cool house jammer, cruisin thru smoke & mirror club corners decorated with icy synth flourishes...”

“Peter Schuette is the wizard behind the keys in Psychobuildings and Silk Flowers and formerly of Soiled Mattress and the Springs.  Literally look at the dude he is clearly a wizard. Peter’s House Music is his very straight forward name for the house music he makes at home. House music is maybe not an exact one to one correlation for the creature he’s created on his debut EP, Jump, which features plenty of space guitar and industrial synth leanings. But, yeah, he’s right, it’s also got a ton of 303 or 808 or 404 and like all the drum machines ever put together on your computer program divided by DJ Harvey at 4AM...”

“When he's not getting his goth on in Silk Flowers or grooving the light fantastic as the frontman of Psychobuildings, Peter Schuette busies himself with another project, the aptly-named Peter's House Music. This particular four-to-the-floor cut is from the man's forthcoming Jump 12" on All Hands Electric.”
