Better known to his fans by his stage name of Hauschka, the new live album is titled ‘2.11.14’ and reportedly takes its cues from a number of sources for a “a captivating, energetic stream of consciousness set to music, in parts akin to a DJ/live dance music set.”
Set to arrive June 22nd, ‘2.11.14’ was recorded at the tail end of last year – hence the title – at the Artegio Music Museum in Yufuin, a small town on the Japanese island of Kyushu and comprises of two 20 minute improvisations. Speaking on the album Bertelmann reveals that spontaneity was key when recording the LP stating “It [was] a great experience to drive for several hours to a remote and modest place in the mountains of Kyushu, only to find the ideal setting to record a piece of music so touching yet rough and spontaneous.”
