Kristiansand Octave Cascade
This is a Grotrian Braunschweig Upright Piano which also lives in the Kilden Theatre in Norway. Whilst I was recording their Concert Grand (also available on Pianobook) I grabbed a chance to continue experimenting in a practice room.
The Piano itself has a big dynamic range and gets used for practice or gigs, usually by bands touring into the venue, so it sees a lot of different hands and styles.
The Kontakt instrument has the usual Piano notes sampled with Christian’s MVP template, but… it’s also a bit of an experiment in creating continuing textures with the piano too. To do this I recorded a bunch of slow repeated octaves from each note (which can be turned on/off, and aren’t to any specific rhythm) which float around the main piano notes to create a seemingly random array of notes as texture.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Pairs great with E. Guitar Octave Cascade
Super chill piano that can be the entire backdrop for a track, especially when paired with the guitar version.
Brilliant piano with textured delays
Great if you can’t afford Olafur Arnald’s fancy one (or even if you can)
The main piano is nice but the rippled random delays and backwards sounds each have their own controls so you can place this under another piano if you wish.
Really inspiring to use.
