Tape Piano

Tape Piano


This is a simple, eerie hybrid instrument, for drone-like textures. I sampled an old upright piano at very close range, and just kept the resonant, swelling middle part of the note. This was then blended with the noise and clunk of an old tape recorder. The lower keys play the tape mechanism on its own, then the piano begins further along the keyboard. At the very top of the keyboard are some strange glitchy sounds. The instrument is presented with very minimal effects, but you can vary the blend of piano and mechanical noise.

Requires Kontakt 6.
