Info for Inside Out

German pianist Brigitte Angerhausen presents her second very personal album Inside Out. Her eleven exceptional compositions cannot be allocated to only one specific musical genre but belong to diverse musical spheres. Angerhausen frequently uses rhythm patterns borrowed from the Latin-American music domain, as well as the harmonic structures of jazz, integrating them into a strong melodic context and form reminiscent of her classical background. Thus we experience completely different sound characteristics and atmospheres - sometimes even within one and the same piece of music - reminding us of a suite form. The music takes its multi-thematic course, leading us through completely free improvisation, or improvisation over a static key as well as more traditionally in jazz, improvisation over multiple keys. Her music seems to float, to take the listener on an adventurous ride to unknown places. The complex acoustic as well as musical spectrum to be found on Inside Out ranges from Angerhausen´s delicate and touching piano solo playing in e.g. Piece of Heart via inspiring dialogues between piano, guitar, and bass such as in Winterstimmung or Dahin and culminates in the strong exciting interplay of the whole band in opuses like Tamed or Fluyendo.

When composing Angerhausen consistently applies two complementary approaches: melody and acoustic colour. „…developing a composition starting from a melody, I somewhat end up telling stories.” (Nothing as it seems, or Danza), Angerhausen explains, “However, if I discover a certain atmosphere, timbre, or mood rather a reflection of a state of mind seems to emerge.” (Nichts bleibt wie es ist,) – impossible to communicate any other way than with her music. Every band member, each of them great specialists for tone colours themselves, seems to understand perfectly how shape every single mood variation: the inspired bass player Volker Heinze and guitarist Markus Tiedemann constantly reinventing himself and his guitar sound, conduct the closest dialogue with Angerhausen´s piano voice, Frank Sackenheim innervates the compositions with the brilliant impulsive energy of his sax soli, and last but not least Jens Düppe´s soulful and precise drum playing always representing a rock solid foundation and drive. But above all it is fundamentally Angerhausen herself who creates the distinctive and exceptional sound established on Inside Out coloured with her delicate and expressive piano playing. Her enormous technical tone control, the warm and soft touch can surely be indentified as a result of years of classical lessons from an early age on.

Inside Out is the work of pianist Brigitte Angerhausen, also a renowned and experienced sound engineer and Tonmeister responsible for numerous prominent audio productions and at home in all kinds of musical genres. Ranging from Punkrock to Pop, from Jazz up to classical symphonic orchestra productions Angerhausen has been forming an active part of the European music business over many years. Her profession serves as her permanent source of inspiration and is the foundation of her wide-ranging musical orientation. Masterly she avails herself time and time again of all these different musical influences, seems to put them back together to a completely distinctive overall Angerhausen-Sound. Thus we are not surprised Brigitte Angerhausen made sure Inside Out meets exceptionally high technical production standards, and expect it to become one of the finest sounding records to be released this year.

Brigitte Angerhausen
Mit ihrem Debut-Album "Beyond the Border" lässt die Pianistin und Komponistin Brigitte Angerhausen eine Welt großer Gefühle und tiefer Geheimnisse jenseits aller Grenzen entstehen. - Beyond the Border.

...erhielt ab ihrem 5. Lebensjahr klassischen Klavierunterricht bei Yoko Fujimoto, den sie später auch im Rahmen ihres Tonmeisterstudiums am Columbia College (Chicago, USA) fortsetzte. Dort erweiterte sie ihren musikalischen Horizont durch das eingehende Studium anderer Musikrichtungen (Blues, Jazz, Rock, Filmmusik) und spielte in verschiedenen Formationen. Seit 1988 widmet sie sich der Musik als Produzentin und Tonmeisterin mit zahlreichen Aufnahmen und CD-Produktionen internationaler Künstler wie Nelly Furtado, Mark Knopfler, Patti Austin, Vince Mendoza, Toots Thielemanns, Michael Riessler, Tabea Zimmermann, Hilary Hahn, Lydie Auvray, Konrad Beikircher, Hans-Dieter Hüsch, Michael von der Heide, BAP, WDR-Sinfonieorchester und der WDR Big Band.

Der unabweisliche Drang, ihre eigenen musikalischen Ideen umzusetzen, führte Brigitte Angerhausen in den letzten Jahren wieder ans Piano zurück und zu intensiven Jazzpiano-Studien bei Hendrik Soll und Pablo Paredes in Köln. Erste eigene Hörspiel- und Theatermusiken zogen weitere Kompositionen und Arrangements nach sich, die Brigitte Angerhausen seit 2003 zunächst im Trio “Puente” (akustische Musik im Spannungsfeld zwischen Klassik, Improvisation und Jazz, mit Anne Kaftan – Sopransaxophon/Bass-klarinette und Ulrike Zavelberg – Cello) umsetzte.
