Collection Instrument Summary:

  • Cage Piano Stereo - Cage Piano is a Prepared Piano honoring the prepared Piano styling of John Cage. This prepared piano makes use of rubber stoppers, screws, wood pieces, and other various materials inserted in between the strings to affect the tone of the piano
  • Bass Velocity - A percussive prepared piano that takes the form of a synthesizer bass
  • Alt Preparation - Another Prepared Piano that differs from the Cage Piano
  • Gong Piano Mono  - A modified piano, recorded in rich stereo, which invokes images of Far Eastern gongs
  • Soundboard Knock  - A soundboard knock that is stretched across the keyboard. Be the one who knocks
  • Pedal Piano - Another Prepared Piano that sounds like a cross between a toy piano and a grandfather clock. Each note is harmonically different from the next
  • Lead Piano - A Percussive attack - as if the strings were being plucked
  • Mono Prep Piano - Monophonic version of the Cage Prepared Piano
  • Paper On Strings - Paper sheets across the strings generate a unique buzzing synthetic sound
  • Pedal Piano - A Prepared Piano that allows the entire sample to be heard when the Sustain Pedal is pressed, otherwise Note On / Note Off control the length of the sound
  • Percussive Map - These are samples of a prepared piano that can easily be used as a unique ethnic percussion setup
  • Scraped Strings - Scraped strings provide eerie, film score sound effects.
