Beyond 12: Reinventing the Piano, Volume 2
Aron Kallay, Retuned & Remapped Digital Piano
For nearly 200 years the piano’s design has been exactly the same: 12 keys 7 times, low-to high = left-to-right.
But why 12..? Why left-to-right..? What if…
Beyond Twelve is a project that uses state-of-the-art physical modeling technology to break free from the constraints of this design—and the piano will never be the same again.
Grammy ® nominated pianist Aron Kallay premieres new works from eight of America’s most visionary composers, who were given two ground rules for these commissions:
1) Re-tune the keyboard, from extended just intonation to 88 equal-divisions of the octave and everything in between.
2) Re-map the keyboard, left can be right, high can be low; pitches need not be in order.
All compositions from 2004-2015, and recorded using Modartt’s Pianoteq.
