German composer, songwriter and experimental musician, Hauschka, today announces ‘Agdam’, an exclusive new video taken from his critically acclaimed album ‘Abandoned City’ out now on City Slang records.
Hauschka’s music encompasses the beautiful use of prepared piano which is intertwined with his unique twist on neoclassical composition. The piano plays simple, hooky, repeated Kraftwerkian note clusters, propulsive rhythms swish like brushes on a snare drum which combine with bright pizzicato accents that sound like a cross between koto and violin.
