In his solo project, Hans Arnold devotes himself to both song-like and sound-researching structures, combining influences from ambient, indie, experimental and improvised music. His set-up combines Wurlitzer piano with a standing bass drum, which merge into a single instrument through live – looping.
October 2022 saw the release of Hans Arnold´s sophomore Album „Interim“ digitally and as a limited edition LP. Hans Arnold ́s music sees itself as a bridge between experimental and pop music interested listeners. One of the reviews of his debut album „And finally the rain“ (2020) states „…for friends of keyboard instruments who are tired of generic neoclassical music…“, which describes the music and its ambition quite well. Complex but catchy, minimalist but unpredictable. Acoustically generated, gently electronic transformed percussive sounds and the singing Wurlitzer piano create a highly authentic sound world, which both touches emotionally and changes listening habits.
„Intense but with a minimalistic sound, there a lots of noisy textures that make his sound both electronic and acoustic sounding at the same time. “ Jazz Revelations / May 2020
„It´s a pleasure watching Hans Arnold create these compositions from the ground up, lovingly applying each new element to the slowly swelling track.“ Tome to the Weather Machine
