Harmonics Machine

Charlie Williams of Larkhall Music approached me with an interesting idea for a collaboration, the Harmonics machine is installed onto the frame of a grand piano and it modifies the sound of some of the strings to play different harmonics.

Larkhall first publicly performed with the Harmonics Machine in March 2023 and it features on Larkhall’s upcoming new album. Follow @larkhallmusic on Instagram or Tiktok for more info.

Above photos by Martin Tompkins shows the latest version of the Harmonics machine installed on a grand piano.

Below are images of some of the development prototypes being tested. Development of the Harmonics Machine is ongoing with the creation of a version for an upright piano. I will update this page with images of later iterations as the project progresses.
