Omniwerk: Instrument builders in wonderland | by Bachtrack for classical music, opera, ballet and dance event reviews
Via David Bruce,

"At last summer’s BRQ Vantaa Festival, audiences were introduced to a remarkable new instrument: the omniwerk. Jonte Knif and harpsichord builder Jukka Ollikka combined two historical keyboard instruments – the geigenwerk (or viola organista) and the lauternwerk – into one totally new instrument."

The Harpsichord's Historical Pickle - YouTube, Jun 2018 - David Bruce Composer
"The harpsichord has certainly suffered from the slings and arrows of historical fortunes. In this video I look at how the rise of the piano and later the early music movement left us with a historical pickle which needs some clever players and manufacturers to find a solution for. It remains an amazing instrument which I've enjoyed writing for several times in recent year. "

[Technopoly] |
Brian Lamb: Neil Postman, author of "Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology", what's your book all about?

Neil Postman: The tendency in American culture to turn over to technology sovereignty, command, control over all of our social institutions. In other words, the book is about how American has developed a new religion, as it were, and the religion is its faith in that human progress and technological innovation are the same thing and that paradise can be achieved through greater and greater commitment to technology.

(81) Building 15-Foot-Tall Pianos - YouTube May 2019
David Klavins is a pianist who, for years, could not find pianos that made the sounds he imagined in his head. So he began building pianos to his own specifications in a workshop in Vác, Hungary, and they are truly unique creations. To wit: Klavins’ vertical concert grand stands over 15-feet tall, and he actually has to climb a ladder to play it, which he does, beautifully, just for us.
