Playing Music While Peaking On LSD – A Piano Improvisation

Kieran Huisman:

This video was filmed while I was „peaking“ on LSD.
Back story : September 2016 (I was 23) I was dealing with a break up with my ex and work issues on a daily basis. Then depression came at me for the first time in my life.
After speaking to my family members and my good friends, my mindset was prepared to „make a change“ before having that trip and I felt that it was a good trip helping me to let go of everything that was stopping me to be a better self.

I suppose this piece of music was a reflection of all my emotions scrambled together at that stage. I still remember the pain and emptiness in my gut while playing this random song. But then I felt completely relieved having to express whatever blockage it was in the performance.

I turned on my piano, closed my eyes and just let it flow. Surprisingly a song came out.

Ps. I am a classically trained piano player so improvising has never been my thing.

Gitarrensaiten im Klavier und Klaviersaiten an einer Gitarre

Ich weiß nicht, ob der Schwede Mattias Krantz der erste ist, der die Idee hatte, die Saiten von Gitarre und Klavier zu tauschen, denn irgendwie ist die Idee zu diesem Experiment ja naheliegend – wenn erstmal jemand darauf gekommen ist. Am Ende klingen die Saiten des Pianos auf der Gitarre schon nach Gitarre, auch wenn das eines längeren Prozesses bedurfte. Und die Saiten der Gitarre im Piano klingen sehr nach Gitarre.

So I first spent 25 minutes trying to tune my guitar here because I still had hope but then I realized that it just didn’t work. So I had to spend a total of four days until the strings just stayed in tune.

Piano strings are so strong that together they can literally 18 tons of tension compare this to the
guitar strings, which can only handle 90 kilos. So what does it mean? Probably that most of the guitar strings will break when I put them on…The guitar strings are too short. I will have to tie the strings together.
