Listening to… 🎧
We’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re listening to Grandbrothers, a German duo from Düsseldorf. Grandbrothers consists of Erol Sarp, a German-Turkish pianist, and Lukas Vogel, a Swiss engineer. The two source all of their music from the piano, Sarp mainly playing and Vogel mainly processing the sound emitted. They use the whole animal: drum tracks are really thumps upon the exterior; synth pads are really heavily reverbed chords. We’re first playing the pair’s latest record, Late Reflections, which just came out this past April. It’s upbeat yet refined, a high-definition exploration of the piano’s sonic range. We’re also playing Open from 2017, an earlier effort that augered well of their immense talents.
