Event description
Homebeat are delighted to be hosting classical-meets-contemporary German duo Grandbrothers in the Button Factory

About this Event

Grandbrothers are the sum of two unique parts: progressive Swiss engineer/mechanic/software designer Lukas Vogel and German-Turkish pianist Erol Sarp.

Sarp and Vogel formed Grandbrothers to bring together their different musical backgrounds and disciplines:

Sarp is a trained jazz pianist, while Vogel constructs synthesizers. Together, they create a unique sound that combines classical composition with modern, experimental production and sound design.

Their second album Open twins Sarp’s piano skills with Vogel’s talent for both building the formidably intricate mechanics with which he exploits his partner’s instrument and also designing its software. Sarp works at his ivory keyboard while, from behind his own 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.

Open explores dimensions at which their debut ‘Dilation' only hinted. The greatest revelation for anyone hearing them the first time remains the element constant to everything they’ve recorded: every individual sound that Grandbrothers make stems from one single instrument, a piano. No wonder their music was once memorably described as “open heart surgery on a grand.”

Grandbrothers are classical, yet forward-thinking; expressive and emotional, with two feet on the dance floor.
