New Hauschka Album ‘What If’ Coming In March


Volker Bertelmann AKA Hauschka has announced his new album 'What If' which is due out on City Slang at the end of March. The awards nominee's new LP is apparently more immediate and full-bodied than its predecessors, with a confident, direct new sound. Bertelmann used an old Roland Jupiter 4 synthesiser and an Eventide H3000 Harmonizer, as well as utilising unusual objects to treat the piano. He also programmed parts for self-playing ‘player pianos’ (also known as pianolas), exploiting the speed at which they could play and manipulating the resulting sounds. “I definitely decided with ‘What If’ to make a record that might be my most radical. The lyrical piano has disappeared, and the sounds I’m fascinated by – like noise and electronic elements – have taken over”, says Bertelmann. Alongside Dustin O'Halloran, he has recently been nominated for a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for the score to 'Lion'. 

Hauschka – What If is released by City Slang on 31st March 2017 and can be pre-ordered HERE.
