Hauschka presents his upcoming album “A Different Forest” at Silent Green this November.
Wood, felt, aluminium foil, ping-pong balls and gaffer tape are just some of the materials and objects Düsseldorf-based sound researcher Volker Bertelmann uses – under the pseudonym Hauschka – to explore the prepared piano’s limits. With the wafting, babbling and pulsating rhythms of his arrangements as a foundation, versatile melodies varying in speed and timbre grow out of Hauschka’s organic sound – from the grand piano out into the concert hall.
The result is a mosaic of pop, classical, avant-garde and electronica, sonic frameworks that make people take notice, not only in concert halls, but in theatre contexts and the film industry as well. Hauschka returns to the Volksbühne for his traditional New Year’s concert with support from the Alma Quartet, some of Amsterdam’s most accomplished orchestral musicians.
