From Tarantino's raucous new western to a Duchamp tribute at the Barbican, the pianist and composer picks the cultural events catching his eye

Volker Bertelmann, better known as the experimental pianist and composer Hauschka, grew up in Ferndorf, Germany and began learning the piano aged nine. He later wrote pieces for pianos modified by attaching objects to their strings to create otherworldly sound effects. His first album in this vein, Substantial, was released in 2005. His innovative compositions are frequently compared to the work of Eric Satie and John Cage. His Salon Des Amateurs Remixes album is out now.

Festival: Dancing Around Duchamp, The Barbican

A season of events celebrating Marcel Duchamp will be on at the Barbican until June. I love the stories and provocation that you can find within his art. He uses humour in an intriguing way, and it's great to observe how the art world reacted to that. »
