The Piano Speaks!

Austrian composer Peter Ablinger transferred the frequency spectrum of the child’s voice to his computer controlled mechanical piano so that “with a little practice, or help or subtitling, we actually can hear a human voice in a piano sound” — and the result is certainly compelling. Read more >>

Hi everybody!

I live near Ottawa and I was told there was a public piano at City Hall... have you ever played there? I'd like to go, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in joining me?

 I am sure there's a lovely piano there ... but it's just way too cold in Canada for me. Smiley

It's not that cold in the summer  Grin (we're only freezing during the winter/spring months) In fact, the weather is usually good, we even have about 20 public pianos in Montreal, they leave the pianos outside for the whole summer, for both professional and amateur pianists... it is fun, I was hoping to renew the experience in my new city. Besides, I think the piano we have here is said to be a Steinway grand, so they're keeping it indoors, no need to worry about the cold  Smiley

my Dad's family is in Thunder Bay and I used to go there as a child way way way back in the 1960s and 70s...  it was so cold it was scary.  I remember throwing a cup of water off my grandmother's back porch and the water droplets freezing in mid air before they hit the ground.. 

it was so dark at night and you couldn't see the road only the snow blowing in front of the head lights...    Grin Then in the spring there were the bears... 

yeah...  lol... 


I live across the street from the gulf of mexico in what's known as the "deep south"-- 

we see snow about every 10 years or so...a flurry or two.   winter is about two weeks long.  No bears...instead there are alligators .. and we have hurricanes that are legendary..

but at least it's warm.

People here go to the beach when it's around 0C  Cool.  10C in January you say, that calls for shorts and sandals.  Just don't complain when it gets hot in the summer. 

Are the public pianos in Montreal an annual thing?
