Double Trouble


As promised at the end of
my previous article, I am posting a couple of video examples employing the note layouts presented there:





These videos demonstrate that it is possible to move from one keyboard to another with relative ease even though they do not share the same note layout, as explained on the above mentioned article. In fact I had never played those two keyboards at the same time before and, as you can see, their position is not particularly ergonomic, nevertheless it is feasible, at a glance, to conjure up some music. You can hear that I move back and forth from a somehow major to a somehow minor tonality.

The usefulness of this technique lies in the different spatial placement of notes the two keyboards permit. Simple phrases on one of them are usually very hard on the other one and vice versa.

Here is how my Chameleon looks like now:
