Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sounds for prepared piano, drums and guitar. Using rubber wedges between the piano strings at different lengths along them altars the timbres of the struck notes, changing the balance between the harmonics and producing varying percussive effects. Cane saxophone reeds and other found objects placed on the strings can produced a completely unique acoustic sound (not synthetic). Metal gamelan placed on a drum skin brings melody to the drum; knuckles striking cymbals changes the sound, ringing out different overtones. Steel wire brushes the snare with a shaking effect. The guitar plays as though it were fragile, but it's full on. Pure, clear chords then crackles and feet gently tapping the guitar case. Sounds for prepared piano, drums and guitar.
