HAUSCHKA – Elizabeth Bay (Video)

Posted on March 1, 2014 in english, featured artist, Music

22.5.2014. Hauschka (Ger) LIVE, Zagreb @ &TD // 65kn / 80kn

Hauschka is a German born composer, songwriter and experimental musician who has brought an exciting new perspective to the prepared piano through avant-garde, pop, modern classical, and electronic explorations. The compositions on new album ‘Abandoned City’ awaken the loneliness and unattainable romance of timeless, unfamiliar places, with cinematic melodies full of resonant overtones, bright cheerful keyboard patterns and dark percussive touches. The tracks all bear the names of actual vacant cities, recorded using nine microphones. Six recorded sounds coming from the piano strings through an analog console feeding directly into a computer preserving the warm sound, while three others passed the tones through a mixer full of effects.
