From Sound X Sound: Music For 9 Pianos

Danish composer Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard has been working on his Sound X Sound series since 2013. The ultimate aim of the project is to make the sound of an instrument transcend itself by way of multiplication, stacking eight recorders, 16 triangles, nine pianos, and so on. Treating these simple music compositions as basic research in sound, he sees the process as a way of capturing instruments in their natural habitat, untainted by cultural impact or codes.
