Introducing the ethereal masterpiece “Nebula” by the intriguing and gifted Coco Schwarz, also known as the Piano Prince. This Swiss virtuoso from Zürich is back with their second album, a stellar offering that will leave everyone in amazement. Following the success of their debut album, “Memory Lane,” Piano Prince takes us on a cosmic adventure through the universe with a ten-track instrumental adventure that is nothing short of stunning. “Nebula,” which was released on June 9th, takes us on a cosmic journey, constructing a fictitious tale that explores the depths of human emotion as well as the limitless enigmas of the cosmos. It’s a journey across the universe, sketching amazing stories with the piano’s exquisite keys. Each song on this album exemplifies the Piano Prince’s capacity to transcend earthly comfort and journey into the unexplored terrain of celestial investigation. During my interview with Piano Prince, he disclosed that “Nebula” was inspired by his passion for outer space and a desire to envision what it would be like to explore the universe. His ability to transform this awe into music is nothing short of astounding. Enjoy the full interview below.
SONGWEB: Can you tell us a little bit about the inspiration behind your latest project?
PIANO PRINCE: My latest project, “NEBULA,” was inspired by my fascination with outer space and the idea of exploring beyond our planet. After releasing my first album, “Memory Lane,” about nine months ago, I wanted to take my music to a new level by imagining what it would be like to travel through the cosmos.
SONGWEB: How do you approach the creative process when creating new works of art?
PIANO PRINCE: When I create new music, I like to be very hands-on. I don’t want to leave any part of the process to chance. I compose, record, and mix everything myself because I believe it’s important to have full control over my music. This way, I can make sure it sounds exactly how I want it to.
SONGWEB: Can you share with us a particularly memorable moment during the making of this project?
PIANO PRINCE: One memorable moment while making “NEBULA” was when I was working on “A Grain Of Space Dust.” I had a beautiful touching walk along the river where my atelier is. The sun was almost down and the colors were otherworldly. It felt like I just arrived on another planet. I felt immense gratitude to be alive and to experience all the human feelings and connections. It made me reflect on our human experiences in the context of something much bigger. After I went home and recorded what I felt in one go. It just flowed out of me. The whole recording without any changes is now on the album.
SONGWEB: What message or emotion do you hope to convey through your art?
PIANO PRINCE: I want to take people on a journey of exploration. “NEBULA” tells a story about a character Piano Prince who goes on an adventure through space. I want my music to make people feel a sense of wonder, introspection, and longing, and to remind them that we all seek connection and meaning in life.
SONGWEB: Can you describe how you incorporate your personal experiences into your work?
PIANO PRINCE: Normally everything I create comes from some experiences either in my past or in my imagination or dreams. Each composition is like a window into my emotions and thoughts. While “NEBULA” explores space, it also serves as a reflection of my journey as an artist and person.
SONGWEB: How does your latest project differ from previous works you’ve created?
PIANO PRINCE: “NEBULA” is different from my previous work because it explores space and cosmic themes. My first album, “Memory Lane,” focused more on personal and down-to-earth topics and memories. This change allowed me to explore different kinds of inner emotions.
SONGWEB: Lastly, what are your plans for your artistic journey and where do you hope to take your work in the future?
PIANO PRINCE: I always want to keep making music that connects with people emotionally. I plan to explore different inner worlds to keep things fresh and exciting. At the moment I’m working on my next single. I’m super excited about it. It will hopefully drop soon.
I also hope to grow my Patreon community to offer exclusive content and support my future projects, so I can keep making music that matters.
With “Nebula,” the Piano Prince has not only broadened their creative boundaries but has also taken us to a place where music becomes a conduit through which we explore the cosmos. Piano Prince, in my opinion, is a perfect fit for the moniker Coco Schwarz as they have proven themselves to be a true master of the keys. Their capacity to create music that transports listeners to other worlds and inspires deep emotions is nothing short of royal. It’s easy to see why I was drawn to interview them; their music is a heavenly journey that captures the spirit and leaves an indelible impact. “Nebula” is a monument to their ability and vision, and it deserves an honored spot in the collection of every music enthusiast.
