Not too long ago, we shared a collection of videos made by NPR of German composer Hauschka demonstrating his intricate and idiosyncratic approach to the piano. Those clips illustrated in a very straightforward manner the intellectual rigor of Hauschka's technique and were fascinating. This new video, directed by Jeff Desom, does the same in a tangled, fictional fashion, possibly to relate the hard labor required to make music that sounds so natural and effortless. The song is from Hauschka's album, Foreign Landscapes, which is available for your immediate purchase from Fat Cat.
