Hauschka

Hauschka is a pioneer of what is now commonly reffered to as 'prepared piano'. Prepared piano is a method of composition and playing where one attaches objects in between the hammers and the keys allowing for a far greater range of sounds to come out of the instrument. 

As you can see from the photo on the left, Hauschka often plays with a camera projecting what is happening under the hood as he adds and removes items such as small cymbals or various objects into the heart of the piano.

Vinyl by this artist is actually a little hard to come by in the states due to poor distribution so we currently have no titles available but wanted to share this artist with you either way and hopefully we will have something from him soon.

Check out the great video he made for the first single from his album 'Abandoned Cities' called 'Elizabeth bay' below.
