Chart positions

This show was 14th in the global classical chart, 21st in the global experimental chart and 76th in the global ambient chart.

Producer and established Belgian keyboard sidekick David POLTROCK spent half a decade experimenting with the impressive range of vintage keyboards and synths in his Brussels’ studio. Growing up listening more to indie rock rather than electronic music, he evolved towards a more organic, humanized sounds by combining these with the mesmerizing textures of a ‘prepared piano’.

In 2018 he released the trilogy ‘Mutes, Moods & Machines’ on Dutch boutique label Excelsior Recordings. Three full albums, released with a pianesque 88-day interval, all highlighting a different approach to the 88 piano keys. Three distinctly versatile albums displaying a genuine affection for keyboard instruments of character – and the prepared piano more specifically. All compositions share melodic and harmonic purity: beauty in all its simplicity.
