Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel met in 2011 while studying at the Institute For Music And Media in Düsseldorf. Since then, they have been developing cinematic soundscapes out of minimalistic patterns that bring the heritage of Steve Reich and John Cage to the Berghain. The duo abstains from synthetic sound generators and works with a device that controls small electromagnetic hammers in a grand piano via a laptop.

With this instrument, which they developed themselves, Grandbrothers manage to create everything from contemporary piano music to percussion and electronica. Their debut album “Dilation” was released in 2015 after two years of work and shows how this special piano can open up a broad horizon to listeners used to pop and club music while setting a standard for the piano music of the 21st century next to the like of Chilly Gonzales and Nils Frahm.

FAZ: “They make contemporary piano music that is strongly influenced by the big names of the experimental side of the genre, but also by new electronic music and are ambassadors of an extraordinary fusion of the analogue and the digital. They manage to make a grand piano sound exciting and adventurous again. But their focus lies of the audibility of their music and not the concept.”
