After spending several years composing music for films -- most notably 2016's Golden Globe- and Academy Award-nominated Dustin O'Halloran collaboration Lion -- Hauschka's Volker Bertelmann tells his own stories on What If. On his previous solo album Abandoned City, his inspirations were tangible and the music focused on the mainstay of his work, the prepared piano; this time, Bertelmann lets his imagination and arrangements run wild as he speculates on what life could be like in the not-too-distant future. To express these fantasies, Hauschka looks to rhythms inspired by hip-hop, superhumanly fast and accurate player pianos, and an Eventide H3000 Harmonizer and Roland Jupiter synth that add just the right amount of sci-fi wonder. Salon Des Amateurs already proved that Hauschka can incorporate unexpected sounds and sources into his music seamlessly, but there's still something special about What If's vignettes of loss, frustration, and occasional whimsy. A subtle political undercurrent runs through tracks such as "I Can't Find Water," where the prepared piano scrabbles as a melody shimmers like a mirage just out of reach, or "Constant Growth Fails," where the player piano's frantic arpeggios evoke Philip Glass' Koyaanisqatsi score. Though each of the album's songs are self-contained, Bertelmann's concerns sometimes suggest narrative connections; the startling "Nature Fights Back," the synth battle of "Familiar Things Disappear," and the reflective "Trees Exist Only in Books" play like a musical triptych of the world consuming itself. As vivid as What If's abstract worries are, some of the album's best moments are the ones that feel personal, whether it's the distance implied on "My Kids Live on Mars" or the spacious yet tender "I Can't Express My Deep Love," on which Hauschka does just that by imagining that he cannot. Here and throughout What If, the ways Hauschka explores the possibilities of his music -- and the future -- make it one of his most intellectually and emotionally engaging albums.

Kraftwerk, 50 ans d'avance

Groupe de musique électronique le plus influent de l’histoire, Kraftwerk, fondé par le duo Ralf Hütter et Florian Schneider, qui s’est éteint le 6 mai 2020 des suites d’un cancer, a toujours été en avance sur son temps. En avance sur la technologie, sur la composition, sur les performances scéniques, les Allemands ont prouvé au grand public que les machines étaient aussi capables d’émotions et ouvert la voie pour la techno, la new wave et même le hip-hop.

Erased Tapes, un label pas si classique

Dès sa création en 2007, Erased Tapes s’est imposé comme un des labels les plus innovants des quinze dernières années, tout en rencontrant le succès auprès du public. Parfois trop vite réduit à sa vitrine néoclassique (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), le label basé à Londres mène des explorations aux confins de l’ambient, l’electronica et l’expérimental à travers un catalogue mené de manière harmonieuse par l’Allemand Robert Raths, que Qobuz vous propose d’explorer.

New Order, de la cave au dancefloor

Comment le groupe mancunien le plus sombre de l’ère punk est devenu maître du dancefloor ? Né sur les cendres de Joy Division au début des années 80, New Order symbolise l’une des premières unions réussies entre rock’n’roll et dance music. L’impeccable BO de la morose Angleterre thatchérienne.
