For processed gran piano sounds.

The piece is a tribute to the modern instrument par excellence, sound-symbol and reflection of the Western decline. The piece is an investigation inside the sound rather than of the sound. The raw material was recorded experimenting direclty on strings and soundboard. Subsequently the material was digitally processed. The form is a sequential process inspired by the intrinsic characteristics of the starting material and by the result of the signal processing.
