What is the soundtrack to a war? Polish composer, pianist, and electronic artist Hania Rani has created a unique sound with her cascading arpeggios and cross-over hand piano playing style. She layers electronic sounds and loops into the sustained-pedal sound of her piano-playing. The track “Buka” from the album Home was recorded live in the iconic Warsaw Radio Studio S2, in Warsaw. The instrumental composition flows, never-ending, down an imaginary musical landscape and the listener jumps on for the ride. Where are we going? It is difficult to tell and that creates a sense of urgency. I chose this artist during this horrific week of terror in Ukraine because I wanted to remind listeners that whatever happens over the next few weeks and months, music will always remain the standard-bearer behind which we unite.
