We are deeply honoured to welcome the unique and wonderful Hauschka to the family, and to announce that 'Abandoned City', the latest in a long line of piano masterworks, will be released via City Slang on March 17th 2014!
Hauschka is a composer, songwriter and experimental musician who has brought an exciting new perspective to the prepared piano. The prepared piano – 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 takes the art to new and unexpected levels. More info on this new release, along with all 2014 tourdates over in our artist section, but first listen to lead track "Elizabeth Bay" right here:
