For those unfamiliar with Hauschka, he is a German pianist/composer known for his avant-garde use of piano and songwriting. He often “prepares” his piano, meaning he modifies the way the piano works to achieve new sounds. He couples this with unique time signatures, strings and light percussion.
The opening track to Hauschka’s 2008 release, Ferndorf is Blue Bicycle. It’s five and a half minute journey of consistent piano, topped off with intermittent string and percussion parts. Enjoy.
