No. 33 from Study for Player Piano by Conlon Nancarrow is a piece of music with a numerator of sqrt 2. Study No. 40 for two non-synchronized pianos by the same composer has e beats of pi Sqrt 2/pi time is basically these 2 combined - e beats per me

Anything with 4 in the numerator is simple quadruple meter and this includes 4/2, 4/4, 4/8, 4/16, 4/1 etc. Simple Triple: 3/2, 3/4, 3/8, 3/16, 3/1 etc. Simple Duple: 2/2, 2/4, 2/8, 2/16, 2/1 etc. Simple Quintuple: 5/2^x Simple sextuple(also a for

I played on a light acoustic keyboard for years, the teachers' keyboards were all heavy sluggish clumsy things. Why concern yourself with such matters? Can there ever be any justification for heavy keyboards on pianos which are expected to have a d

Thanks very much for reposting that. I think it might be a board limit for new members? the only allowed option was 'using UBBCode'. Certain after a few posts, I definitely now have html option included. Shame I can't delete original.

Mark, my experience with test blows: I prefer to use hammer technique, and mp to mf, to equalise segment tension as much as possible. However, I am not good enough to get it to work all of the time. I like to give a few sharp blows to every note afte

Laser Doppler vibrometers are expensive to buy but there are a couple companies in N.A. who rent them out for reasonable rates, many university physics labs take advantage of this for short studies.

Thanks Ed. Your advice is the opposite to what I thought. I assumed that decreased pressure bar tension may cause decreased friction and thus hopefully easier rendering. My question was whether this is likely to be the case. You are saying, I thin

Where is the forcing? ET is defined as equally progressing beat speeds, M3 and P4 as well as M6, etc. Different size octaves produce a variation in the proportion of the progression, but they are still evenly progressing. What is your understanding

If you like old Bechsteins, be aware that new ones have nothing in common with them. So, forget the name and see if you like it on its own merits. It is strikingly different than the older ones. You could look for ones from the 60's and later too
