I’ve just spent a great few days in the Sussex countryside, composing some short pieces for prepared piano.
Screws and bolts inserted into the strings create bell-like sounds, accentuating the piano’s harmonics, and blue tack deadens the tone, making for a very percussive sound.
There was no wifi or mobile signal which was very refreshing and I got lots of work done! I’ll be back next weekend to complete the set of short pieces.
