In May of 2017, I got a message from a guy in the United States saying that he was working on something with which I might be interested.
I accepted his request to have a video call to find out what it was all about. I really didn’t know that much about Player Pianos, but after hearing him explain his vision, which included me, I realized that his idea was really great!
He created an app called PianoStream which works with most player pianos. By using his app, I could virtually play thousands of pianos around the world at the same time. Pretty amazing! Even though I’m not physically there, I kind of am because it really is me playing your piano! Wow! It’s as if I were sitting there in your home with you and your family.
PianoStream is like Pandora for your Player Piano. It has many different stations which cover every genre. To enjoy them, let your mood decide… select the station that you feel like hearing and the piano starts playing! Since we began working together we have produced more than two hundred songs played by me including Rock, Pop, Jazz, Latin, and also beautiful Italian music all ready for you to enjoy.
The guy who called me is Richard Hayes who has since become my good friend. Thank you Richie for this great adventure that will never end!
Please take a look at the videos and download PianoStream from the App Store! Oh, and don’t forget to watch the video tutorials that are present in the app to set up your system correctly.
