After a sold out show at Cafe Oto, Dusseldorf composer, songwriter and experimental musician Hauschka returns to London next month to headline the Union Chapel with support (at the Union Chapel) from Luke Abbott as well as, playing a date at the CCA in Glasgow.
2014 saw the release of the superb ‘Abandoned City’ LP, something that should sound incredible in the surroundings of both venues.
The prepared piano is 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. ‘I wanted the sound of a hi-hat (cymbal) to add a percussive effect to a composition I was writing. I took foil from a Christmas cake and wrapped it around the strings [inside the piano]. From there, I was inspired to use other objects on the strings to get bass drum sounds, or tacks on the piano hammers to get the sound of a harpsichord. When I was playing techno music, I had samplers where you could get a different sound on every key. I thought it would be great to have that effect on an acoustic piano. I was not aware of John Cage (one of the first 20th century composers to use prepared piano) when I started searching for ways to alter the sound of the keyboard, but as I got more into prepared piano, I was influenced by Cage’s theories.’
