The Richter Scale Premixes (2023)

The Richter Scale Premixes is the first of three releases from The Richter Project, centred on the recording of Boris Bergmann's The Richter Scale, an hour long contemporary classical piano composition performed by Steinway artist Ji Liu.

The Premixes are electronic remixes of movements from German composer Boris Bergmann's hour-long work, The Richter Scale, written for pianist Ji Liu and Steinway's Spirio | r piano. The Premixes were created by Berlin techno producer Khan of Finland together with Bergmann and pianist Ji Liu. Recorded during the pandemic, these electronic orchestrations offer a unique take on The Richter Scale.

While retaining the elemental essence of the original piano composition, The Richter Scale, the Premixes add an entirely new sonic dimension to the original piano movements fusing them with elements of elegiac ambience, plangent and driving percussion and a plethora of other electronic sounds and moods.

The team for Heresy Records' release of The Richter Scale Premixes EP is comprised of highly respected artists in their field, including producer Khan of Finland, composer Boris Bergmann, pianist Ji Liu and executive producer Eric Fraad.
