A beautifully recorded character piano with the warm thump of strings deadened by a well sponged thumb. Sponge Piano is what happens when you multi-sample a conventional piano in an unconventional way.

The aim here is to create a new piano timbre. Something which carries the weight, emotional oomph and play-ability of a traditional piano. But with something a little different going on.

A bit Agnes Obel , a hint of Tom Waits and with death metal possibilities.
