Today I’m introducing you to German composer Thomas Klak and his latest release What’s here. Thomas was born in Haltern am See in 1979 and grew up in Marl. At the age of six he took his first piano lessons with Hungarian Gilel’s student Istvan Nagy as teacher.
Thomas has been playing keyboards in different metal bands, and also studied the piano in the connection with Musical Education in the class of Arnulf von Arnim at the Folkwang-University, department Duisburg. Since October 2009 Thomas Klak is teaching Piano and Piano Improvisation as lecturer for special tasks at Folkwang University, Essen.
The track What’s here was released on the album with the same name in April 2019.
Tell us something about your track What’s here!
What’s here describes the moment of orientation in your/a bedroom at night. It’s dedicated to the tiny little moment, before your brain and thoughts kick in to give you orientation:orientation in the place and the story you actually stay in.
Music: my music is simple, intimate, melodic, melancholic, deep and calm. It’s based on ostinato pattern and intensive melodies.
Thank you for sharing this with us Thomas!
