Describe your sound in three words
Plucked, bowed and hammered.
Your music is piano driven. Who is your favourite piano composer?
Hannah: Gabriel Fauré
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
