Schönbrunner Perlen Label Night

Schönbrunner Perlen Label Night Among the many upcoming labels in Vienna, Schönbrunner Perlen shines in ways befitting to its name. Their first release, a collaboration between Ken Hayakawa and Herb Piper, still has us cheering every time it gets played (not to mention the equally promising SP 02).

And if you take a look at the line-up of Schönbrunner Perlen Label-Night at Fluc next week, you’ll get an idea of just what we can expect in the upcoming months.

All this excitement got us to thinking: We’ve been listening to so much Ken Hayakawa, it’s about time we got to know him a bit better. Which is why we sent him this questionnaire:
