Piano Drone #1 ::: Recorded in February 2009 at Canterbury House. The piano is "amplified" via a contact microphone resting on a low string, which runs to a Fender Hot Rod amp. The resulting sonic system is very sensitive to every possible dimension of change. The changing atmosphere of the piece was mainly the result of the sonic system changing itself; my only interventions were to "tune" the amp to prevent high frequencies from dominating. No notes were played on the piano itself.

Piano Drone #2 ::: Recorded in June 2009 at a house on the north side of Ann Arbor. The contact mic was quite firmly lodged in place, and plugged into a small practice amp. The resulting piece is a crescendo, with some equalization adjustment along the way. Again, no notes were played on the piano itself.
