A founding member of German rock pioneers Can, keyboardist Irmin Schmidt performs music from his album Klavierstücke, breaking down composition into ambient incident. Within the confines of his old band, Schmidt was responsible for catering to the psychedelic rhythms that have influenced a generation of rock music; as a composer, his music is sparse and spectral, paying credence to space and silence. Drawing on his work as a soundtrack composer, the pieces Schmidt will perform reflect their spontaneous beginnings as stray thoughts, marrying his history of writing music for the piano to his time as a fearless improviser.
