5 Extended Piano Performance Techniques that work well with Electronic Music

Composer José Luis Amores shared this video, which looks at five extended piano performance techniques that work well with electronic music.

“These techniques make the piano sound blend very well with electronic music,” notes Amores. He adds, “Using these techniques is a lot of fun and they are easy to try. You get new sounds and this can inspire you to make new music.”

Amores covers techniques for playing the piano harp directly with your fingers, using tools using cloth to mute the strings and more. Each of the approaches lets you create sounds that sound like piano, but not like a piano is traditionally played.
