Pianist and Oscar-nominated composer returns to the pure piano for his first album with Sony. He writes: "In A Different Forest, I'm focusing on the forest as a natural environment and contrast to the urban everyday life; to my surroundings. Where do I want to live and work? What surroundings do I need in order to feel fulfilled? By examining these questions I always come back to nature. How often have I gone for a walk and finished on the crest of a hill or mountain top, and found a new perspective on things. It's quite a moving experience. The experience of the sublime. Realizing that everything has been there for such a long time and will continue to exist, yet in contrast, our human existence is reduced to but a fraction of the earth's history." The forest is also a symbol of change for Hauschka. Here people can find themselves again and feel surrounded by, as well as a part of, a unified whole.
