Hauschka is the alias of Düsseldorf-based pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann.

Bertelmann’s work is based upon an exploration of the possibilities of the prepared piano – a playfully disruptive intervention into the preconceived idea of the piano as a pure-toned, perfected instrument. Bertelmann explores and influences the outcome of his music by modifying parts of the instrument, attaching various objects to the strings to create a sound described as “a delicate, sometimes haunting form of experimental piano music”. Hauschka’s sound borrows as much from John Cage’s same-titled prepared piano works and the historic predecessors of Les Six – namely Erik Satie. In 2007 his first full album for FatCat, Room to Expand was released to critical praise.
