Aqstnik „Tasten der Unendlichkeit“

Biotop presents the first album of the genre-breaking Aqstnik project. Aqstnik combines classic piano-music with tricky electronic elements, created by two skillful maestros in their artistic fields.

The two artists behind Aqstnik are the german pianist Klavierkunst aka Davide Martello and the german producer and biotop label-head Patrick Schmutz aka Patrick Zigon. Both artists can look back on their extensive music-careers and numerous trademark-releases within their genres. Ever since his brave concert on Taksim Square during the Turkish protests of 2013, Davide is well known and a true hero – not only for Turkish fellows. Davide and Patrick live at the beautiful Lake Constance area in Southern Germany, where they both started their musical careers, and where their paths fortunately crossed.

The two had no master plan when they fired up the machines in the studio. It was all about the intuitive flow with the aim to unify piano-music with electronic production- skills, and to develop something original out of it. In a few very creative nights a whole album accrued, containing 9 experimental, deep and sensitive songs, most of them freely interpreted. Cineastic and enthusiastic – in some places blue-eyed and light- hearted, in other parts dark and sophisticated – continuously emotional and packed with magic moments.

Aqstnik‘s „Tasten der Unendlichkeit“ will be released in december digitally, completed with an amazing video by Tripfabrik and a beautiful artwork by Dafar. More information on Biotop is alive.
