PIANO DAY/S

piano, modern classical

A new take on modern classical piano with an electronic feel

EN There aren't many classical musicians who would recommend a Berlin electro-punk album from 1993 on their Facebook page or honor the 25th anniversary of grunge mastermind Kurt Cobain’s death with a link to his famous song Lithium. Whether Atari Teenage Riot or Nirvana: Pianist Kai Schumacher moves through the diverse fields of popular music in a stylistically confident and knowledgeable way.

Since his days as a classical music student and the release of his first album The People United Will Never Be Defeated, the «Bad Boy of Music» (Klassik Critix) has been experimenting like a crazy musical scientist, combining seemingly irreconcilable elements.

Kai Schumacher's solo performances are pure alchemy, both musically and stylistically, offering an intoxicating mixture of Dadaism and dancefloor, avant-garde and pop culture – sometimes even everything at once.

    Rausch

    On Rausch, his current album, Kai Schumacher focuses on his own compositions. The «punk pianist» (BR) refrains from using overdubs – no electronic elements are used at all. Instead, Schumacher prepared his instrument in analog form and manipulated the piano's mechanics to create weird sounds. According to the musician himself, «that’s why Rausch is a snapshot that you don't necessarily associate with piano music.»
