The Avant/Garde Diaries session: Hauschka “Noise Is Music”
Hauschka, is an internationally regarded pianist and composer keeping the avant-garde manipulations of those before him alive and well. He often prepares his piano with bottle caps, plastic foil, parchment paper, duct tape, screws, erasers, and pretty much anything else, paying homage to the sonic explorations begun by artists like John Cage. To explore these oft-ignored sounds, Hauschka took The Avant/Garde Diaries on a sonic expedition through Düsseldorf where they listened to the thrum of traffic, whooshing of gutters, and the subtle lull of the River Rhine, exploring the city entirely with their ears.
In it, you will get both a demonstration and an introduction into the philosophy behind manipulating the acoustic sounds of a grand piano.
