A little tea-time music

My piano is being tuned right now.

I. Langlois is tuning it, this piano that he designed and had built to his every specification, this piano that he delivered himself and situated in the music room. I like the slow progression of notes being tweaked and manipulated. It reminds me of an orchestra tuning before a concert, robust and alive with harmony and dissonance dying, resurging, slipping over and around me.

  1. That is quite an uplifting and poetic way describing the piano tuning process. I will take the liberty of speaking for my fellow tuners – thank you!
