Experimental musician and prepared piano specialist Volker Bertelmann readies new LP Abandoned City under his Hauschka guise for City Slang. Whilst prepared piano pieces are by no means new Hauschka makes the sound his own, crafting dense, involved atmospheres through a wide range of sounds. ‘Elizabeth Bay’ is a captivating piece of piano-led modern classical composition, painting an immersive aural picture of a lonely landscape through use of a wide range of processes and effects.
