The Greatest Pianist in the World!

Album recorded in A = 432hz

My classical album Pants was recorded in the A = 432hz tuning standard, also known as the “Verdi” tuning.

I choose this tuning standard because the lower frequency seems to soften some of the nasal qualities that many piano recordings have (especially around C3-C4).  In addition, the higher notes/frequencies in the mix seemed to be a little more rounded.  I’m not sure if there is an explanation that is scientific for that, but even if it’s just an aural illusion,  I’m satisfied with the result.

    I’m really starting to get into this Verdi tuning thing. It’s a little weird at first, especially when I toggle back and forth between listening to A440 and A432 music, but after reading the more credible information about the practical reasons for it, I’m convinced that this may be something worth promoting as a musician. I can feel it drag me down into my body and hit me in the chest; it’s amazing. As long as the music is actually played and recorded tuned to 432 hz, the effect is intense.

    I love it, I only use 432 Hz for all of my work. But I also use unequal temperament which can have 3rds and 5ths which are more pure. Here’s a nice article I wanted to share with you.

    I’m so happy someone decided to tune his piano to 432 Hz!

    Best,
