Sponge Piano 2 - Warm Thumpy Upright Piano

A beautifully recorded character piano with the warm thump of strings deadened by a well sponged thumb. Sponge Piano is what happens when you multi-sample a conventional piano in an unconventional way.

The aim here is to create a new piano timbre. Something which carries the weight, emotional oomph and play-ability of a traditional piano. But with something a little different going on.

A bit Agnes Obel , a hint of Tom Waits and with death metal possibilities.

Recipe for A Sponge Piano

Open up the front of a piano to reveal the strings inside. With a naked thumb, softly push a small piece of spongeonto the uppermost part of a string.

Find the appropriate key and play the note lightly, adjust the force of the thumb until you get a lovely soft piano thump.

As you move the thumb/sponge down the strings you get a softer, deader sound with a slight de-tuning effect.

Repeat this process for all 92 notes with around 20 hits per note – after a few weeks (and a lot of coffee breaks) you are on the way to a Sponge Piano.

Fortunately, Sound Dust has already done this bit for you!
