Kai Schumacher Solo

solo piano contemporary minimal music electronics

As an arranger and performer with a focus on contemporary American piano music, Kai Schumacher has released several albums since 2009 with works by Frederic Rzewski, John Cage, George Crumb, Tom Johnson, Steve Reich and others. On his album “Rausch” (2019), however, the focus is entirely on his own compositions for the first time. Schumacher avoids overdubs and any use of electronics. Instead, he has prepared his instrument analogously and plays with acoustic perception using the “weird” tones of the piano. Now, his upcoming album "Tranceformer" (release September 29th, 2023) takes this sonic exploration to a new level. Patterns interweave, shift, and collide, making the music a perpetual transformation that shapes itself uniquely in each listener's ears.
