ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The virtual pedal harp looks like a concert pedal harp, but with no soundboard or sound of its own. It has a MIDI interface that allows the player to trigger sounds from any MIDI hardware or software instrument. This recording features original solo performances on this unique instrument.

Biography: Bruce Kurnow, currently residing in the San Francisco Bay area, is a multi-instrumentalist who plays keyboards, stringed harp, harmonica and the Gu Zheng (Chinese harp).
