Hauschka is the alias of Dusseldorf-based pianist/composer Volker Bertelmann, whose work is based upon an exploration of the possibilities of the 'prepared' piano -- a playfully disruptive intervention into the preconceived idea of the piano as a pure-toned, perfected instrument waiting for a gifted virtuoso to play on it Seattle resident Rafael Anton Irisarri explores and studies different structures and sound design methods. His compositions range from electro-acoustic works that incorporate organic, electronic and non-conventional instruments to melancholic pieces written for piano, electric guitar and synthesizer.
