Hainbach — The Evening Hopefuls
"The Evening Hopefuls is an album that would have been impossible for me to write a year ago. I always felt the need to add a little beat or bass. I got bored when the music was too calm. This changed when I wrote my first piece for orchestra. After the score was done I had little to do in my hotel room in between rehearsals, so I reworked bits and pieces of rehearsal recordings into something new. The calm was suddenly pleasing instead of grating. After a month I had three hours of music recorded, of which this album is a selection. What I especially enjoy about the record is that in many pieces there are about forty people present, sitting in an old cloister, playing my music for the first time. Electronic music can be a lonely affair, but not so in this case. We were The Evening Hopefuls."
