Motorized Piano | Interview with Field Kit

Describe your sound in three words

Plucked, bowed and hammered.

Your music is piano driven. Who is your favourite piano composer?

Hannah: Gabriel Fauré
John:Thelonious Monk

Is having an electronic approach to classical compositions helping younger audiences come closer to classical music?

Hannah: I doubt that it brings people closer to “classical repertoire”. But having an electronic approach is surely a proper way to combine classical soundscape and a modern way of sound production and helps the music developing as well as finding it’s way to younger audiences.

John: Whatever the current definition of classical music is – I think adding a different approach is benificial and necessary for it to continually evolve.

Do you think that music has to have an experimental approach and always challenge the listener?

Hannah: At least a tiny bit. It doesn’t have to affect the whole structure of the composition – maybe it’s only a sound or effect which is challenging my listening habits.

John: Concerning my own music, yes. Concerning anyone else’s music , no.

What is your favorite album of the past year?

Hannah: Anima – Thom Yorke
John: Adult Themes – El Michels Affair

If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?

Play more music on the radio that matters, stop product placement in music
videos, get a fairer share of streaming to the artists.

What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?

Hannah: finally managed to watch “The Great Dictator”
John: Martin Eden by Pietro Marcello

One last thing we should know about you?

Studio pass-times: table tennis & cooking curries
