Cinematic ambient with neo-classical instrumentation, dreamy electronics, and the occasional rain.
I am not sure where I came across Hauschka but I somehow stumbled upon this album from last year and got quite carried away. Although Volker Bertelmann is a pianist his arrangements deliver much more than just nice piano pieces. If judged through my glasses of electronic music I would say it is some sort of acoustic techno and very much reminds me of the Brandt Brauer Frick.
Update: other material of Hauschka seems to be awesome, too. After the second album (Salon Des Amateurs) I’ve just added his full catalog to my playlist and I’m not afraid to listen through it all.
Beautiful modern composition album with a post-rock and atmospheric ambient edge to it. The moment of standing at the edge of the world, looking at a calm post-apocalyptic scenery and just turning away to leave everything behind and move on.
