Resonant Piano: A Bionic Piano

<Drawing on these sources, Killhertz ’s work takes form in his Resonant Piano, which he himself explains in very carefully chosen terms: This is a sort of “bionic piano“—a potent concept—with its own metabolic sound, expanded by contact speakers placed on the sound board. Thanks to a several contact microphones systems, what occurs inside the piano is captured and sent to a computer, where the sound is processed by algorithms and then sent back to the inside of the instrument through the vibrating surface speakers.> (Marta Espinos)

Resonant Piano

Music of the 21st Century

The piano is a great filter. With its frequency response, its polarity of sound radiation. Anything that we inject inside will be returned by him with his own identity imprinted in the new sound that originates.

A basic description:

Schema Resonant Piano

The capacity for dialogue between the instrument and the interpreter is infinite, which opens up an uncountable range of possibilities in improvisation.

The timbral richness, together with the performative possibilities endow the compositor with an instrument that never disappoints.

When you try to communicate your work, almost always experts in the field recommend you to create a beautiful wrapper and fill it with beautiful photographs and great videos. To generate direct and fast content to reach thousands of people who live even faster.


As an artist and creator that always leaves me cold, because what I would like to tell you is my journey, my search, my experience and the challenges that my work has entailed. So for all those other people who do not want to spend the rest of their lives contemplating golden wrappings, and who do want to take a little time to discover something new to throw in their 'luggage', I will write about the nooks, corners and shadows that have made this album possible.

The main idea is that this is not a monologue, I hear me a lot during the whole day, even if I do not speak ... I will present four main topics* and your curiosity will be decisive to deepen in these works, and what is the same .. know each other better.
