The Hive (A scary piano experimentation)

Some fun extended piano techniques i never have tried before for some reason. All the things your piano teacher tells you not to do, basically 😉

Making this up as I go, I was inspired by George Crumb’s “Makrokosmos” to try these techniques, which include strumming the strings inside the piano like a guitar, stopping the strings inside while playing, holding down low keys silently while playing high keys (creates eerie ringing tone), and plucking the strings.

We also played around with singing into the piano as well, which was really fun too.

The bee costume is because my students just had a Halloween recital 😉
