ARTIST INTERVIEW: VINCENT KRENNERICH


Interview


1. Cru cru Vincent Krennerich, super nice to have the chance to chat with you. First and foremost what got you into music?



Cru cru, thanks for having me! My great-grandfather once bought a piano with the little money he had because it had always been his dream to own one and be able to play. In the subsequent generations of my family, no one else played the piano, but the instrument was preserved. Eventually, as a child, I was encouraged to learn to play the piano and breathe new life into the old instrument. That's how I originally got into music.



2. What is "Sommerregen" and why is it so damn nostalgic?



'Sommerregen' is the German word for 'summer rain.' The fundamental idea of the composition was to create a warm-nostalgic atmosphere that reminds us of the feeling associated with fresh summer rain.



3. What's your top 3 instrumental albums of all time?



Being a classical piano enthusiast, I must, of course, go with 'Una Mattina' by Ludovico Einaudi: a masterpiece of minimally held hopeful-sentimental atmospheres. Belonging to an entirely different category of masterfully minimalist-sentimental atmospheres is 'Chet' by Chet Baker - probably my favorite instrumental album at the moment. I'll leave the third album open, as we could philosophize for weeks about what else belongs in the top list.



4. What’s the best advice you ever gave?



Take your ego out of the equation. Whatever the equation may be.



5. How is your experience as an indie artist going?



I think very well. I consider music as a wonderful balance to other activities.



6. Who was playing on your headphones when you were growing up?



Primarily Green Day, Linkin Park, and Wu-Tang Clan - even though the combination might sound a bit random.



7. Who's your favorite artist from the jazz scene?



In this case, I have to go with Chet Baker. His instrumental albums have acquainted me with jazz.



8. Do you consider yourself a music - nerd?



Absolutely



9. What movie makes you feel the most chill?



I love classic sitcoms (with canned laughter and applause when a new character enters the apartment). They always bring a chill atmosphere and put a smile on my face.



10. Do you agree with the Pigeon?



I agree to being a music nerd. Have a great day!


Review

"Sommerregen" is a piece that immediately enchants me with its immaculate production of notes from wind instruments that are lightly accompanied by shimmering keys and a minimalist beat that allows the track to generate some momentum, despite being stuck in a loop. In this brilliant song I find myself in a distant era, stuck in time. Definitely a cinematic piece capable of transporting us to our favorite places and many others that are even more unpredictable, since these melodies acquire a new meaning each time they are played and depending on our state of mind.



The Pigeon added the new single to his Weekly Gems playlist on Spotify. You can check out the released music below. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow along so you can stay on top of future releases!
