The Talking Piano

Hey everyone… thanks for a great tour… we had a blast… such great energy from all y’all that came out to the shows…


and thanks to everyone who helped put the shows on at each college…


Now it’s time for all of us to give thanks with our families… and then get over to Switzerland to finish the album.


2010 is gonna be a good year…


But that is then… and this is now…


and tonight I saw something on the ever enjoyable and educational superforest.org that made me soooooo excited…


Here is a video of an austrian composer who took an audio recording of a child’s voice and then broke the sound down into its tiniest pitch variations (he described this process of breaking down sound waves as being similar to breaking down an image into individual pixels) and then had a machine player piano play those notes in a way that made the exact sound of this child’s voice come out of the piano strings…
you have to see it to believe it… it’s amazing… got me thinking about how much can be communicated by a musical instrument…


wow…



happy thanksgiving…


much aloha.
