Yesterday I went to the concert of Benoît Delbecq, the pianist @ Fondation Cartier (soirée nomade). It was a nice concert. I really loved when he played simultaneously prepared and regular piano keys together. I went to see how the sound was produced: sharpened sticks of wood, that was all. I also saw an old Casio CZ 101 hidden in the piano, a cult synth from 1985. I saw the same at Momus place in London, years ago. The first time I heard Delbecq's piano was in a Katerine concert at La Cigale (in 2001?). I was very impressed by his playing, much better and innovative than the usual pop pianism.
