Study Piano

A piano tucked away in the study recorded with a pair of AKG C3000s....

The story

This piano from my family home has sadly received very little attention after being moved to ‘the study’ a few years ago. Out of sight, out of mind. Sampling it for use in future compositions shall give it some love once again. It also helps with the fact that it has some sticky keys.

The piano is very resonant with a rather ‘breathy’ quality to it. This is particularly noticeable on the high notes, which sound almost like whispers on the wind.

Recorded out-of-tune in stereo using a pair of AKG C3000s, with release triggers and two dynamic layers (pp and mp).
