This is a research project and an experiment: an acoustic piano in combination with analogue, non-computer based effects -or- how to build an electro-acoustic piano?
Electroacoustic music has been the center of my artistic work for over a decade. During this time I have experimented and researched a lot and sooner or later I have always come back to the question of how electroacoustic music can be played or created as intuitively as possible. Especially lately I have become more and more aware that creative, artistic work with a focus on computer programs, despite or perhaps because of the infinite possibilities and constant technical innovations, rather distracts me from the musical essence and is physically very exhausting. Now I want to get away from the computer and play and compose closer to the instrument.
With “Piano meets Paul!” I want to focus on my acoustic piano in combination with analog or non-computer based effects.
