This is the first solo release by Zeitkratzer's mastermind Reinhold Friedl. He teaches the grand piano how to sing and to sound like an orchestra, calling this new way of playing an old instrument "Inside-Piano." Many listeners of Zeitkratzer releases do not recognize particular sounds that come from the piano and thus cannot identify it. After listening to this release, the source will become clear and they will get a new idea of the instrument. The good old grand piano plays aggressive noise attacks, choir-like symphonic movements, and strange, complex sound fibrillations, sometimes lighting up single prepared piano notes, juxtaposed with the tremendous bass of the nearly three-meter long strings. Recorded on a Steinway D concert piano at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, 2010. Published courtesy of Philharmonie Luxembourg. Piano: Steinway D-274, microphones: Neumann U87, Neumann KM184. Recorded by Ralf Meinz, mixed and mastered by Rashad Becker.
