Description

HomeBeat are especially delighted to announce the return of incredible piano / electonica duo Grandbrothers to these shores.

Melding incredible musicianship with groundbreaking technological nous - Grandbrothers return to Dublin (after a sold out debut show as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival 2016) to showcase material from their new album 'Open' released on City Slang Records.

Grandbrothers

Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel, first met sevenyears ago, forming the synth-free Grandbrothers in Düsseldorf only a short while later.

Pairing Sarp’s piano skills with Vogel’s talent for building the formidably intricate mechanics with which he exploits his partner’s instrument and also designing its software,

'Open' explores dimensions at which their debut, Dilation, only hinted. On stage, Sarp works at his ivory keyboard while, from behind his computer keys, Vogel live-samples his partner’s notes, triggering further effects with the aid of homemade apparatus that physically manipulate the piano’s strings and body.

Live, the inventive contraptions at the heart of their work provide a physically astounding and visually astonishing display, so it’s no wonder their music was once memorably described as “open heart surgery on a grand piano.”

Their performances underline the complexity and vigour of their work, bringing their love of techno and club music to the fore. As Sarp points out, “We don’t only make music for listening to, after all. As much as we enjoy playing concert halls with the audience seated we also love to play at sweaty clubs where people are standing and dancing around us.“
