Echoes Podcast: Chad Lawson’s Ambient Piano

Chad Lawson's Ambient Piano

Chad Lawson

Pianist Chad Lawson is reinventing the acoustic piano for the electronic age. He came up through classical and jazz and garnered some renown with his album, The Chopin Variations,  turning the Polish composer into something acoustically ambient. But now he’s creating original ambient music, treating his piano with electronic processing to give him a more atmospheric sound. You can hear it on his serene new album, Re:Piano.  We talk to Chad Lawson about reinventing the piano in the Echoes Podcast. You can also catch Chad Lawson’s live Echoes performance streaming now.
