Re: Looping prepared piano

I  saw him two weeks ago at Denovali Swingfest (highly recommended festival: http://denovali.com/swingfest/).

At this particular gig he started using a lot of feedback! I really was disappointed in the beginning because it was too much and too noisy in my opinion. But throughout the gig he slowly reduced the amount of feedback and gadgets planted into his piano until, at the very end, he only ad the original sound of the piano. This transformation of sound made it a very interesting gig!

Neat you have crossed circles Amy.  I agree and did not comment in detail but I agree he's a bit safe in tonality almost Mannheim Steamroller like and I'd like to hear more buzz more feedback more range but what he's doing is still very cool to me.

I shared a gig with him at Great American Music Hall in SF. He brought in a nice crowd — seems to have quite a following here. A lovely warm person, a great set backed up by the MagikMagik Orchestra... though I found myself wishing he’d do more out-there stuff.

I don't know if anyone knows of this fellow, perhaps he's wide known in Europe but this was passed on to me and have found pretty neat what he's doing.

I particularly like the moments of feedback and occasional roomsounds though I was disappointed he never went for the eBow :)
