the founder member of can presents us with a heady series of 5 minimalist piano pieces that transport us to a peaceful meditative state.

Schmidt explains “The tracks are spontaneous meditations, only played once and recorded simultaneously - no edits or corrections. They are formed from an emotional memory in which Schubert, Cage, Japan (Gagaku) and Can are equally present.” Schmidt partly prepared his Pleyel piano, in the way he was taught by John Cage himself, and the other piano - Irmin Schmidt’s 100-year-old Steinway - remained unprepared.
