As he explains in this interview, Volker Bertelmann aka Hauschka uses purely analogue tools to create electronic sounds. He’s also not a fan of the laptop. The wire-haired one is now signed to FatCat, a label brimming with weirdoes 😀 which I love.


His second album this year, Versions Of The Prepared Piano, might not sound like a remix album.. it is. The original, The Prepared Piano, is quite bare and unassuming. The artists that did the makeover managed to keep the originary syntax, and add a welcome metaphor or too.
