‘Petrichor’ the greek word for -the scent raindrops arouse falling on dry ground- is a symbol for the diversity contained in Harnes Kretzer’s latest Album.

The variety of modulations he elicits from his antique piano is awesome. The origin of sounds is not reduced to the keys but expands to every single part of the instrument. The lid screeches, the pedals rattle, the felts breathe with the tide. Each acoustic element was squeezed through a magnitude of digital effects to reappear as a homogenic adventure to a never heard acoustic cosmos.

Smooth piano ballads, tiny lo-fi interludes, bewildering noise carpets await the attentive listener. In ‘Petrichor’ Harnes Kretzer combines a colorful mixture of ambient, neo-classical, noise and lo-fi musical styles. The acoustic jewels reveal their beauty by listening closely, laid back with closed eyes withdrawn from the world around.

’Petrichor’ was recorded and processed on various locations. This spatial diversity is the offspring of the emotional and acoustic intenseness attracting the listener throughout the album.
Harnes Kretzer managed to create a masterpiece by reducing the means to a minimum to get out the most.
