Vertrauen in den Westen
A series of compositions for rhodes, recorded sounds and electronics
2012 / ~45'
In June 2012, to a Vancouver bank account Volkmar Klien transferred a rather respectable figure. Electric piano in near perfect condition (according to its owner). Days later – Air Cargo Terminal of Vienna International Airport – it became clear just how rewarding a little faith in the Occident can be. Rhodes suitcase – weighted keys – built in 1975. And it likes, just as it is liked. Because composer and piano, in each other’s company, are strong as they are feeble.
