Phill and Scott's first session with prepared piano and magnetic resonators (EBows etc); Leeds, 29th March 2022. This recorded improvisation is the final 18mins of a session where we explored in different ways our overlapping interests in prepared piano resonances. The piano (Steinway baby grand) was minimally prepared, just three strings prepared with screws. Some preparations are deliberated left loose so that their vibrations make them rattle and move around, slowly settling into new configurations depending on surrounding vibrations.
