Piano Day 2015 (March 29)

Berlin based composer/producer Nils Frahm declared today, March 29th (the 88th day of the year on non-leap years draws an allusion to the 88 keys on a piano), the first Piano Day. In celebration of this holiday, many artists broke out their pianos and composed pieces – Tale of Us did just that.

For those who aren’t familiar with Tale of Us, they are a Berlin-based DJ/Producer duo composed of Matteo Milleri and Carmine Conte. In their words, they are “re-writing the rulebook for deeply moving, emotional electronic music.” They recently released a remix of Plastikman – EXpand (Plastikman is one of Richie Hawtin’s monikers). Listen to their remix of EXpand below:

 

 

The track Tale of Us produced for Piano Day,  “Distante,” is centered around the piano and synthesizer. In “Distante,” you will hear Tale of Us’ distinctive style: meandering melodies, seemingly random at times, but each note has a purpose. In previous releases, Tale of Us have demonstrated their superior sound design skills, but they raise the bar with the exquisite timbres heard in “Distante.” Listen to and download “Distante” for free here:
