The Fluid Piano, invented by Geoffrey Smith, is acknowledged throughout the world as a Revolutionary acoustic musical instrument. It incorporates ‘Fluid Tuning’ mechanisms that enable musicians to alter each note individually and separately by precise microtonal intervals.
If you can imagine an acoustic piano with no tuning restrictions that is not limited to one predominant cultural tuning and offers an immense diversity of scales and modes from all around the world, as well as individual ‘bespoke’ tunings: a piano that even gives you the freedom to alter the tuning whilst playing - then you are halfway to imagining the Fluid Piano.
Perhaps you are also halfway to imagining that the Fluid Piano is uniquely suited to Hindustani classical music.
with the Fluid Piano I will no longer be restricted by western tuning: he will be able to slide and bend notes and create his own individual tunings as he desires.
The creative freedom and massive expansion in artistic choices, expression and capabilities that the Fluid Piano offers are incredibly exciting for me.
