“Minimalism may sound simple for many, its not. You need good sound design skills and story telling in layering for not be sound empty or boring, here Grandbrothers grab this minimalism from the first seconds and push it far away, to unknown limits. unfolding a dreaming story telling through lush harmonics arps and soft sound. Goosebumps guaranteed!”
The debut single and title track out today from the album “All The Unknown” starts out with the clanging percussive piano figures that have danced across Grandbrothers’ previous terrain, but grows with the intensity of high-octane electronica to cast out allusions of classical romance, guided by emotive, cascading keys that collide with stuttering digital percussion.
The upcoming album maps out a wide-open sound-world of compositional possibilities for pianist Erol Sarp and producer / electronic engineer Lukas Vogel, who have been putting their modern and unique electronic spin on prepared piano since first forming in 2012. Forgoing the need to play every single note live, this new album sees the pair juxtapose the old and new once again, venturing further into the electronic cosmos armed with a grand piano, self-built computer-controlled mechanics, and a new sense of latitude.
The album All The Unknown is set for release January 15th 2021 via City Slang.
