An exceptional talent, Niklas Paschburg of Hamburg, Germany has developed his own musical style where Neo-Classical, Ambient, and E-Music merge into a sound that is both meditatively touching and symphonically uplifting. Now living in Berlin, the artist plays in churches and clubs his instrument of choice, the piano – with a twist. His music mixes DJ-like synthesizers, piano, accordion, and bass drums with a computer and is accompanied by video and light shows.
A lover of nature, Niklas Paschburg looks to it for inspiration as he enchants on his sound-painting journey through deep soundscapes with club-suitable intensity. In this spirit, he immersed himself in the nature surrounding Krug in the year 2008 as he sought to interpret Krug 2008 and Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition into music.
For his compositions, Paschburg visited the vineyards and cellars in Reims, observed and interviewed members of the House at work, and noted, "I was particularly inspired by the infinite patience and dedication required for such Champagne masterpieces." He also drew on this respect and the soulful emotional essence of the experience he brought back from France to compose a piece for Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition and Krug 2008. Paschburg created mesmerizing hymns to the sparkling art of Champagne, full of joie de vivre and energy.
