HAUSCHKA - VERSIONS OF THE PREPAIRED PIANO (CD)


"How do you remix a piano solo? Artists Čglantine Gouzy, Barbara Morgenstern, Nobukazu Takemura, Wechsel Garland, Takeo Toyama, TG Mauss, Vert, Frank Bretschneider, Mira Calix, Chica And The Folder and Tarwater remix, rework, and redefine the fragile experiments on Hauschka's 2005 release, The Prepared Piano, which opened many ears to the multiple sound possibilities of the piano. Versions... features reworks that redefine composerly piano work. Hauschka selected different musicians who each picked up one of his compositions as a basis. The results transgress the boundaries of ordinary remixes: material being added en masse, Hauschka's complete, perfected works all at once function as basic tracks on which more and more layers are stacked. This can be at times opulent as with Vert, or tranquil like Čglantine Gouzy's finished piece. Hauschka's piano integrates itself as both a rhythmic and melodic element and presets the conditions for composition. TG Mauss' melancholic pop track demonstrates this procedure to an almost exemplary extent." (label info)
