"How do things come to life?" This is a question that composer, electronic producer, and classically trained piano virtuoso Johannes Motschmann has been contemplating for a while now. "I wanted to make music about the starting point, about how music appears. So this record is about bringing concepts and ideas to life."
It's a unique, compositional approach to electronic music that has led Motschmann to several ground-breaking albums and a raft of acclaimed performances all over the world, latterly alongside Boris Bolles and David Panzl as the Johannes Motschmann Trio. 2016's "Electric Fields" via Neue Meister, which matched classical flourishes with beautiful moments of electronica, typified his creative processes - "New sound spaces inspired by electronic music, but produced 100% by hand," is how he described it – something he repeated for "Lifestream".
