Boomkat Product Review:
Extraordinary solo release of dynamic and almost aggressive electroacoustic piano works from Zeitkratzer mastermind Reinhold Friedl. Since 1997 Reinhold has helmed the Zeitkratzer label and collective, who've counted the revered Axel Dörner among their numerous collaborators. The two discs of 'Inside Piano' clock in at over 2 hours of performance composed by Friedl, which in no small way may revolutionise perceptions of the piano's capacity for mindblowing noises. We've heard prepared piano pieces before, but rarely anything as extreme and exhilarating as this. "The good old grand piano plays aggressive noise attacks, choir-like symphonic movements, strange complex sound fibrillation, sometimes lighting up single prepared piano notes, juxtaposed with the tremendous bass of the nearly three-meter long strings..." Everything was recorded on a Steinway D concert piano at the Philharmonie Luxembourg. Stephen Robinson of The Wire has this to say "Friedl has developed his "inside piano" technique to such a level of delicacy and precision, that any anticipated distinctions between instrumental and electroacoustic music, or between improvisation and composition are dissolved or transcended". Genius. Hugely recommended.
