Maqiano is my new tool/device that allows me to play the Maqamat (≈Arabic scales) on piano! It’s relatively easy to install and remove, and it doesn’t require tuning. It’s still in developement mode, I have used the prototypes in concerts for a few months now, and it will be heard on my upcoming solo piano album (Ozella Music 2020) and the 2nd album of Orchestra Nazionale della Luna (BMC 2020).
I have noticed some difficulties in installing it properly/quickly in some grand piano models, and at the moment I’m super busy with other things… but I’d estimate that all the problems will be fixed by autumn 2020, and I’ll be ready to produce and sell Maqianos to all the pianists interested. Stay tuned!
