Get Ready for The Steampunk World's Fair

When The Peter Ulrich Collaboration performs as a headliner at The Steampunk World's Fair in May 2015, it will continue Peter Ulrich's journey from his beginnings in the Dead Can Dance, where he first began forming his trademark sound to a new place, strange and wonderful and full of black and white magic, utter darkness and brilliant light—an alternative reality that will resonate with Steampunkers and their kindred spirits. The World Fair performance will feature a blend of ravishing music from a mini-orchestra as well as theatricality and costumes reflecting Steampunk and alternative reality influences. The show will feature the best of music from two Collaboration albums, the 2014 release, The Painted Caravan and the upcoming 2015 release, Tempus Fugitives.

Reviewers have been fascinated with this new music. All Music Guide described The Painted Caravan as a "big, unruly band full of personality" featuring a "variety of instruments ranging from horns to electric guitars to bagpipes" and as a "colorful and enjoyable record…a bold step forward for the artist." described the album as "a rich and song-filled showcase," while Modern Drummer called it a "grand mix of folk and world music" and Popdose described The Painted Caravan as a "riveting and intriguing" album.

Be prepared to see and meet a veteran of one of the legendary bands of our time, ready to greet a Steampunk audience as he kicks off his tour with an album launch of their new work, "Tempus Fugitive"!

"Easily a Contender for Album of the Year"

Top UK music magazine R2, has given the album a four star rating.

Online reviewer Simon Smith of Higher Plains Music says "Quite simply 'The Painted Caravan' is utterly phenomenal from start to finish. Peter Ulrich and his collaborators (mainly Trebor Lloyd, Sara Wendt, David Steele and Anne Husick) have pulled out all the stops, said goodbye to any conformity and became trailblazers and pioneers of musical art. Easily a contender for album of the year."

Rob Steen of UK's national newspaper, The Independent, has described The Painted Caravan in Music Week as "a smorgasbord of music past, present and future, and a bona fide contender. A collaboration to be cherished."
