Tuuli’s Piano and Looms

This is the sound of Tuuli’s piano, which is kept in her parents’ place in Võru, in the same room as her loom.

You can hear the two devices together; the loom and the piano, both of them with their strings being beaten. On the piano, the strings are struck by a hammer and on Tuuli’s loom, the warp strings are struck by the beater. Felicity is playing the Piano in the first clip, and Tuuli is teaching Felicity how to weave a rug in the second clip.

A lone piano note

As per this post and in anticipation of the forthcoming Audiograft 2012 festival, during each day in February 2011, a recording created during Audiograft 2011 will be played here as a Sound Diary entry. The whole series will act like an album of sonic snapshots from the festival; though without frames, without borders, and filled with the overspilling sounds of the surrounding world.

Today’s sound was recorded backstage at the Holywell Concert Hall. It features white noise, the sounds of folks moving about in the creaky building, foosteps, and the sound of a lone piano note.
