[Csnd] New music: When everything's been said

Hey hey,
up front: there's only one Csound instrument in it. But this also marks my inspiration to create the Csound handpan instrument, based on the live played Rav drum used in this piece.

Csound: the physically inspired piano with extra resonators. Don't get confused: there is actual acoustic piano from a sample library as well.

I hope you enjoy it.

Best wishes,


wunderschön !!!

Very nice, thanks for sharing!



A very lovely piece.

And, I am loving your handpan instrument(s)!
I have been sharing them with a few tops students who are working on physical modeling for their thesis projects.

Thanks for all your inspiring work and music.

And as always: thank you for your kind and encouraging words, Richard. they are well received and treasured.

I can only hope that this haphazard approach of part modelling, part guess work and sound alike can help your students in any way. Well, perhaps they can assist in a small piece of music, somewhere. That alone fulfills my hopes.

Best wishes,
