Hauschka is captivating Düsseldorf-based pianist Volker Bertelmann. Channelling minimalism and the spirit of Fluxus and John Cage, he opens up his instrument and performs public operations on its innards using guitar strings, gaffer tape and other bits of junk in search of new colours and textures. Erik Satie's mischievous miniatures, Indonesian gamelan and The Books all get a look in. An engaging raconteur and star of Venn 08.
Also from Düsseldorf, Mapstation (aka Stefan Schneider of To Rococo Rot) is an integrated fourth world/electronics project in the pioneering tradition of Can's Jaki Liebezeit or Brian Eno. A bold and evocative reimagining of African rhythms and textures.Plus support from Chipper.
