Max de Wardener Im Dorfe

Powerplant present Max de Wardener's Im Dorfe from the album 24 Lies Per Second.

British experimental composer and instrument-builder Max de Wardener’s three short pieces for percussion, take inspiration from the work of Austrian film director Michael Haneke. Im Dorfe is Max’s response to the 2001 film The Piano Teacher, a twisted mash-up derived from Franz Schubert’s song of the same name, from the song cycle Winterreise. Three pianos of varying preparation provide the accompaniment, for a roller coaster of drums, driven forward by an ever-accelerating metronome.

Performed by Joby Burgess.

Produced by Max de Wardener and Joby Burgess, engineered by Kit Venables.

Visuals created and video directed by Kathy Hinde.
