Michael Harrison, following a lifelong study of both Western classical and North Indian classical music, has forged “a new harmonic world” .

In 1986, he designed and created the “harmonic piano,” an extensively modified seven-foot grand piano with the ability to alternate between two different tunings to play 24 notes per octave on a conventional keyboard. Kyle Gann, in The Village Voice, hailed the harmonic piano as “a landmark in the history of Western tuning.” Once a protégé of composer La Monte Young, Harrison prepared all of the specialized tunings for Young’s 6 1/2 hour seminal work The Well-Tuned Piano, and became the only other person to ever perform the work. For the past 25 years, Harrison has performed his own music throughout the United States and Europe.
