«Nacht Reworks»

Now almost a year has passed since the release of his last solo-piano album. Since then Martin Kohlstedts courage to seek dialogues through music resulted in his «Nacht Reworks» (2015) – eight very different pieces reimagening his record «Nacht» by artists from Germany, Iceland, the UK and the US. Amongst them are resounding names like FM Belfast, Christian Löffler, Douglas Dare or hundreds as well as emerging talents like La Boum Fatale or Spearfisher. Some of their reworks seem like a sensitive commentary on the original, others are completely different ways of looking at the source material. And some have become the frame for joint projects, at eye level and dedicated to something new. «Nacht Reworks» plays into Kohlstedts idea of a fluid body of work rather than searching for a so called perfect version of a composition and is a major step in his attempt to expand his already defined musical language.
