The piano was my first instrument and remains an enduring source of inspiration.
Known as a pianoforte in the eighteenth century, it was a revolutionary keyboard instrument for its ability to change expression by playing both piano (
soft zoft) and forte (loud). That technology matured over the next decades along with the artists who pushed its limits, both technically and expressively.
In the same spirit, music production and performance technology are still evolving, and zoftloud is a little contribution to that process.
