the fragile sound
This is not your standard, polished piano. Sampled humanly from a small Scandinavian upright (missing the bottom octave), it has a very warm and intimate tone. If you loved Nils Frahm’s ‘Felt’, you’ll love Lekko, too.
Besides the soft sustains, you’ll also get characterful shorts (going from a hand-muted sound to full ringing) and irregular, unsynced tremolos, allowing you to create organic swirl of notes based on the chords you play.
the acoustic part is complimented by a collection of bespoke afterglow patches, created by processing the recordings with rare vintage hardware and tape.
Inspired by modern sound design of soundtracks like Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s ‘Chernobyl’ and Geoff Barrow’s and Ben Salisbury’s work on ‘Annihilation’,
