Meeting Hauschka

May 11, 2009

Today Volker Hauschka stopped by to chat about an upcoming collaboration with me on a new film by Graham Streeter (of CAGES fame). Volker is taking the prepared piano into a new realm, and it is quite often transcendent, hovering, beguiling, pretty to listen to, and original. His career seems to be taking off. Seeing this career explosion made me think about my own, and how life takes you in so many different directions.

Collaboration between two composers can be a tricky proposition, but we chatted and were direct about parameters, scenarios, royalties, and the creative freedom.

Here’s a taste:
