jazzman2017 I love the simplicity as this is a contrast from his other recordings. I was able to find the latest release "What If" on vinyl and that too is brilliant for what it is with electronics and prepared piano. This one is Hauschka as the pure pianist on most tracks. Haunting, beautiful compositions. Has anyone noticed that song titles form sentences. I Am Walking From House to House To An Empty Mall. Can You Dance For Me Into The Dawn. etc. Favorite track: Can You Dance For Me.

John Cratchley Simply beautiful and beautifully simple...or, rather, uncomplicated and heartwarmingly direct but with a dash of melancholy and the feeling of something precious lost or misplaced...

about

Recorded in 2014 – shortly after the release of his latest full-length album, Abandoned City – I Close My Eyes is an intimate suite of pieces for solo piano, written and performed by Volker Bertelmann, aka Hauschka. Uncharacteristically straightforward and charmingly simple, I Close My Eyes finds Hauschka breaking from the rhythm-driven prepared piano works for which he is most known. It is a charmingly minor, emotionally resonant album that fits right at home alongside those who influenced, particularly Satie, Debussy, Brahms, and Chopin.
