For the past several weeks and into the somewhat indeterminate future I have been cohabiting with a Bösendorfer. This living arrangement has been going smoothly and I have been racking my brains trying to figure out how to prolong it. In the meantime, I’ve been making some “home recordings” and having fun juicing them up in Logic. Here is a cover I did of one of my favorite Brian Eno songs, Everything Merges with the Night:
One unique thing about Bösendorfers is that they are single-strung, rather than loop strung (like Steinways et al.) meaning that when you break a string you don’t lose an entire note. It’s true, I just checked! Apparently they also hold tune better. Thanks, Bösendorfer web site.
