Explore the imaginative techniques and tricks behind Hauschka’s ‘prepared’ piano, dream up bold new sounds and discover new ways of improvising. Hand in hand with the esteemed German pianist, participants will open up the instrument to expose strings, wood and metal and then modify its acoustic properties using all manner of found objects. Drawing a line from John Cage’s subversion of the classical tradition to the electronica of Aphex Twin and beyond, Hauschka reconfigures the possibilities of the piano.
