The European Hiding Trio featuring Hans Poppel, Piano

Hans Poppel, p; G. Pechet Reber, d; Peter Schärli, tp/flh; Thomas Dürst, b.

Hans Poppel (piano) originally from Munich, Germany - currently lives and works in the United States. He is self taught and considers Theolonius Monk, Bud Powell and Cecil Taylor as major influences. Nothing is free. Nothing is free. Not even music is free of memories, traditions, associations. there is no such thing as "free music". There are places unheard of echoing sounds that seem to have been around for a long, long time. Anything sounds - you only have to hear it. If I look at a painting by, let's say Basquiat or de Kooning, I hear music with it. It is the fantasy of the sound that determines the means of expression and the possibilities of playing. It does not interest me to know what or how I play. My greates wish always was to sit amidst a large orchestra playing joyfully and seriously without knowing the score. I love and persue the primitive nature of mechanical tools in instruments such as the piano. Hypervirtuosity leads to imbecility. Encouraged by Igor Stravinsky's observation that "...the instrument has still other possibilities to offer than the ones limited through the fingers...", I am trying to create my music as a pianoplayer at the playerpiano. I listen to Theolonius Monk and Friedmann Bach: the lonely break with convention. My sound could well be the sound of somebody else. Nothing is free."
