„Salon des Amateurs“ by the dusseldorf based musician Hauschka aka Volker Bertelmann sees the artist utilising the percussive qualities of the treated piano for a unique take on techno and house music. Hot on the heels of October 2010′s ‘Foreign Landscapes’ album, Hauschka returns with a brilliant new full-length. Where ‘Foreign Landscapes’ saw Hauschka shifting from his acclaimed solo ‘prepared’ piano into full-scale orchestral compositions, ‘Salon des Amateurs’ shows how the adventurous pianist/composer pushing into fresh territory and expanding his oeuvre.
