Starting point for each piece is usually a piano composition, which is either left as it is or used as a basis for remixes. These remixes, in turn, are then reduced to individual building blocks that serve as the basis for live performances and new remixes. The compositions are often enhanced by guitar sounds from guitarist Mats Dietrich, who also completes The Flying Chillout Piano.
The Flying Chillout Piano was formed during lockdown in 2020, when pianist and keyboarder Gebhard Schrader started recording relaxing solo piano songs inspired by the tranquillity of the outside world. Gebhard, born in Germany, has been a musician and songwriter since the early 2000s and played in a variety of bands, ranging from experimental noise and drum n bass to reggae swing and folk.
