Hauschka :: Philanthropy

Volker Bertelmann, known professionally as Hauschka, follows up his 2022 Oscar winning soundtrack to All Quiet on the Western Front with a set of intricate, fractally complicated piano compositions. Hauschka is a master of the prepared piano, the use of sticks, hammers, keys, and other unlikely paraphernalia to alter the sound of the keyboard. What is delightful about Philanthropy, though, is how it combines traditional and unconventional piano sounds, so that lyrical runs and post-modern flurries of notes coincide with bumps, clashes and otherworldly vibrations . . .
