Sounded harsh and dissonant to me.
So it’s for piano what an Ebow is for a guitar.
An Ebow’s a cool little device, basically one of these electromagnetic ‘actuators’ but hand-held. it makes the guitar sound like it’s being bowed. I’m sure there’s dozens of videos on youtube showing it in action, go have a look.
Maybe it was the choice of music, which I didn’t much care for, but the video left me unimpressed. It seems like a curiosity. Perhaps the sound is ‘better’ than a synthesizer’s (since it’s not going through speakers) and different in some desirable way from an organ’s, but hardly worth the trouble. Then again, I’m not that much of an audiophile, either.
