An impressive composition of more than 140 minutes based on an unique instrument - a double piano
on which one keyboard is played by the feet.

"Several years ago Martin Kaufmann of Kaufmann Pianos in Brussels told me he had seen and heard an amazing and unique instrument in Italy - a piano with 2 separate bodies! One with a normal grand piano body having 88 notes to be played with the fingers, and below a second piano body with the lower 37 notes of the full keyboard, to be played simultaneously with foot pedals. The inventor of this unique instrument was Luigi Borgato from Padua, who developed this instrument with his wife Paola.

Having known my music for years and that I had been a carilloneur where one plays with both fists and feet simultaneously, Martin Kaufmann thought that the Borgato would be perfect for my music. I was intriqued and through an intermediary, the Italian pianist Roberto Posseda visited the Borgatos in Lonigo where they have their workshop and found that their instrument was perfect for my body and my music. We immediately decided to organise recording sessions in a local church for one week and "From Etudes To Cataclysms" is the result!"
