|Hauschka 2.11.14 Limited Edition Vinyl LP
Hauschka is a composer, songwriter and experimental musician who has brought an exciting new perspective to the prepared piano. The prepared piano – a technique for getting new sounds from the acoustic keyboard by resting pieces of paper or drumsticks on the strings of the instrument - has been used for centuries, but Hauschka was unaware of the tradition when he began exploring ways to get new sounds out of his Bechstein grand upright.
This limited editon vinyl LP documents two 20 minute improvisations that were recorded in Japan last year November and are very loosely based on his last album 'Abandoned City'. The result is a captivating energetic stream of consciousness set to music. In parts this appears even more like a DJ set, you may dance! The album will be available on June 22nd digitally and as a limited edition vinyl edition.
