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.
