One thing’s for sure: these “revisions” or “versions” asked a lot of everyone involved. It wasn’t about simply putting melodies on a straight minimal track – Hauschka’s piano rather integrates itself as both a rhythmic and melodic element or presets the conditions. TG Mauss’ melancholic pop track demonstrates this procedure to an almost exemplary extent. We are dealing with something quite extraordinary here as we’re confronted with something that both functions beautifully in itself and – being constantly in comparison with the original – reveals something of the art of compositon and arranging.
