LABS Glass Piano: A Virtual Instrument Preserving the Sound of Philip Glass’s Beloved Baby Grand #MusicMonday
LABS Glass Piano is a free VST instrument from Spitfire Audio in collaboration with Philip Glass. Glass Piano uses the captured sound of the baby grand piano Philip Glass has used for over 30 years. Here’s more from SonicState:
A spokesperson told us, “Now available to the public for the first time, users can download and discover the unique sonic personality of Glass’s piano via a range of sounds — from the classic and beautiful Glass Grand preset, to soft and atmospheric warps, produced by the Spitfire Audio team from raw recordings. The release coincides with Philip’s 85th birthday, on Monday 31st January 2022. Philip hopes this special collaboration with Spitfire Audio will allow a small view into his world of writing, practicing, and performance.”
