[PINGPONG PIANO] The classically trained German pianist Hauschka takes John Cage’s 1940s invention, the prepared piano—in which the strings and hammers are temporarily augmented by screws, paper, rubber erasers, leather, corks, tape, guitar strings and other timbre-tweaking additions—and occasionally sprinkles in synthesizer, drum machine, electric bass and other acoustic instruments. The resulting unusual textures make a provocative setting for his own modern, rhythmically charged miniatures, influenced by minimalist composers, Indonesian gamelan patterns and electronica. He’s even collaborated with orchestras on a new album of travel-inspired original compositions, including one called “Mount Hood.” But this is a solo show. That was plenty entertaining in his appearance at Doug Fir last year, which climaxed with a flurry of pingpong balls flying out of the instrument and into the audience.
