Marcellvs L. – Klavierwellen LP



Tochnit Aleph TA096

Recorded on November 4th, 2010 in the lagoons of Venice with a grand piano in an upside down position being transported on a small boat. Two contact and two omnidirectional microphones were positioned on the soundboard of the grand piano to record the resonances of the strings, waves, motor, boats… the sounds of the environment of the lagoons filtered by the piano’s acoustic properties.
