Inside Out Piano I

I designed and built the first inside-out piano in 2008 (at Wolstenholme Studios in Liverpool) to explore the idea of accessing the inside of the instrument as easily as the piano keyboard. It immediately gave me a whole new interface to play with and made lovely sounds. I also added gadgets such as motors and a Wii wheel and these increased the flexibility and fun I could have with the new piano. It was a rough and ready prototype built to test the idea but in the future I hoped to own a beautiful new version…  Below are some of the films or recordings of performances I’ve given on the piano.
