@BboyElectrix exactly! Bottelneck’s piano!
Michael Manring’s Piano?
Maybe we will see her in Andertons.
I love this! Is any of this music released?
Eastern and western cultures joining together…
Very interesting indeed!
its like slide guitar for the piano!
Does this remind anyone else of Vangelis’ work for Blade Runner?
what a great idea
@bsd300d better than that – it’s more like a fretless guitar, or a guitar with moveable frets.
piano’s a bitch but the music’s just more of the same. wanna make the microtonal sweat! calling Ives…
This is really awesome. I want to play on this instrument so bad 😡
Does anyone else smell curry?? Haa, but in all seriousness this really just brings the piano into the same realm of alternative tunings on the guitar. It will be exciting to see what new pieces will come from this instrument.
Excellent job, Mr. Smith, it is only thanks to visionaries like you that music evolves!
Wow, what an interesting concept… this certainly redefines how we view the « piano » family of instruments… bravo!
we should organize a concert together, the fluid piano and the wurlstratzer, now that would be original…..2 british inventors…

At first I thought it was martha argerich
The user interface and mechanical elements are beautiful–it can sound like a plectrum or percussive instrument, with sustain like a piano or harp. The way the sliders play legato at attack, sustain or decay, and once set, add particular harmonics to other tones…the sensitivity of the preset harp strings that resonate clearly when plucked with fingers, just as with a harp. I’m as impressed with the engineering and craftsmanship as I am with the performance. (Cleavage is nice, too. 🙂
Yes! Wonderful work. I checked out the microtuned piano. I’ve been working with detuned pianos since 68 and with synthesizers since mid-70s to do what she is doing with this instrument. The craftsmanship and engineering in this are extrAORDINARY beyond measure–
One of the frustrating things about synthesizers is that they are really not capable of finessing the edges of the sound envelope, attack and decay the way a physically produced sound does.
Very very good.
its got a great sound.
This instrument can open new doors for many of us that are interested in using the keyboard for music that uses scales other than the well-tempered. Thank you for posting.
Simply brilliant. soul stirring! congratulations!
