Bowed Piano Ensemble

Last week, when visiting Colorado College for a performance of with North Indian Kathak dancer Cynthia Ling Lee, I had the pleasure of meeting composer Stephen Scott. Scott is most known for his piano music, which explores ways to play this keyboard instrument from the inside.  Among other techniques, his 10-person ensemble bows the strings with fishing wire and hits them with detached hammers and other tools.  The resulting sound is as beautiful as it is unusual. 



The video below features Scott’s composition Entrada.

Here is a video describing the background behind his work.

While there are hundreds of thousands of great performances captured on tape, the music videos featured on TSM blog feature musical creations that are unusual, innovative, humorous, or otherwise purple. This collection is fun–perhaps a stress reliever or diversion at a late night bash! It also provides you with an opportunity to discover new and creative musicians.

Let us know if you’d like to see a video here. ENJOY!!!
