No Love Without Justice
The new solo album No Love Without Justice
will be released on February 14th 2020 at RadioKulturhaus!
"The best art expresses deeply personal sentiments in a universal language. “No Love Without Justice” does just that: born out of a process of intense personal exploration, Verena harnesses the piano to convey an emotional atmosphere that feels very timely. With an unflinching gaze, she examines aggression, power, anger, and love in her compositions. This album is the work of a truly formidable woman, pianist, and artist." (Caitlin Smith)
On her second solo album No Love Without Justice, pianist Verena Zeiner brings the listener into a space of intimacy and insight. Her compositions and improvisations tell of the possibilities and impossibilities of love -- through the piano and also through interacting with live electronic elements. In this music, you hear a woman who focuses on the essence of her experiences. You hear a woman who has learned to be specific about how to use her energy. You hear a woman who understands to trust her own intuition. This program provides a rare opportunity to be drawn in close by the artist -- and to share her world.
To develop this new album, Verena Zeiner collaborated with three distinguished artists: the Canadian composer and producer Caitlin Smith, as well as Viennese sound engineer Markus Wallner (recording) and Israeli musician Ziv Ravitz (mixing and mastering).
The beautiful result of this teamwork will be released on arooo.records.
