    I'm surprised that you've written a piano and percussion part that I might be able to play! One question: what do you mean by "hit"? That seems like a rather vague term that could be interpreted in many ways. Does it mean to hit the piano with the side of your fists rather than the knuckles? If so, perhaps "pound" would be a better word. Also, it seems like there are many different places on a piano that you can hit to make different tones; are there specific spots you want it to be hit? It would also vary greatly between different types of pianos. It seems very interesting like some "musique concrète instrumentale" if you will.

    Hmmm yes, I'm not yet sure where the instruments should be hit, knocked or tapped, so I will have to experiment. I do exactly know that I want the cellist and violinist to hit the body of their instruments with their hands, so I will probably just specify that in the next version of the score.
