IRMIN SCHMIDT RELEASES TRACK FROM 5 KLAVIERSTÜCKE LISTEN TO KLAVIERSTÜCK V, TAKEN FROM HIS ALBUM OF NEW PIANO PIECES - OUT ON 23 NOV “… he builds a relentless, muffled rhythm Jaki Liebezeit would have admired” 8* UNCUT IRMIN SCHMIDT has released a new track from his forthcoming album of piano pieces, an edit of the final track on the album, ‘Klavierstück V’. Listen to the track here: 5 Klavierstücke is released by Mute in conjunction with Spoon Records on 23 November 2018 on vinyl, CD and digitally and the release coincides with events centered around his works later this year including the International Film Festival Braunschweig and the Volksbühne Berlin. Irmin Schmidt explains, “The tracks are spontaneous meditations, only played once and recorded simultaneously - no edits or corrections. They are formed from an emotional memory in which Schubert, Cage, Japan (Gagaku) and Can are equally present.” 5 Klavierstücke, was recorded and produced by Gareth Jones in the South of France on Irmin Schmidt's two grand pianos. Schmidt partly prepared his Pleyel piano, in the way he was taught by John Cage himself, and the other piano - Irmin Schmidt’s 100-year-old Steinway - remained unprepared. Several pieces were recorded in one session on the prepared piano only, others contain recordings from both pianos. All ambient sounds were recorded on site - around Irmin Schmidt's studio - and there are no other instruments or electronics of any kind.
