Biographie

Arnold Kasar is a Berlin based pianist & music producer whose work challenged the boundaries of new classical music and electronic music. He has done a lot of commuting over the last few years, recording with legendary figures such as Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Friedrich Liechtenstein. His own work took a bit of a backseat, but during breathers between different projects he would occasionally capture impressions of the day as sound recordings. The laptop became a sketchbook. Over the years, several hours of extremely personal piano improvisations have accumulated in this way, which Arnold Kasar then processed into the present album "Resonanz" through the act of editing. To deepen and layer these recordings, Arnold Kasar repeatedly travelled to his usual retreat, the Devil's Kitchen Studio in the Rhine Valley, at the southernmost tip of the Black Forest – once again an lengthy train journey from Berlin Central. "There's plenty of space and I can let go," says Arnold Kasar: "There's an old piano – and electricity – so I can set up my mobile equipment. Sometimes it's quite good to leave the Moloch Berliner behind me."
