Bob Siebert

”LIVE @ STEINWAY GALLERY” was recorded direct to DAT with no editing except for fading on applause. This collection of Standards originally appeared on the old MP3.com website, where it received over 15,000 plays. The trio on this CD was my working band that had been together for over 9 years. With the exception of “My Bohemian Legacy”, my other CD's consist of all original pieces.

I sometimes perform on the African thumb piano. “Pieces of the TRANS-World Suite” is a solo CD of my music performed on a variety of these instruments.

My latest project is my collaboration with bob Lepre. I perform on a Circuit Bent SK1 Keyboard and he plays electronic percussion. My 1st recording for the SK1 was “Rrrring tones!” This piece received is premier at the Spark Festival of Music and Art @ the University of Minnesota. We are presently work on a CD called “Tunes for Tomorrow, Noise for today”. This is a collection of original pieces and classic Jazz standards

Influenced by the prepared piano works of John Cage, bird songs heard in his neighborhood, and Dadaism, Bob Siebert presents his own flavor of compositional quirkiness with Rrrring Tones. The charming album features 15 short pieces, all of which were written for and performed solo on a circuit-bent Casio SK-1 keyboard, an instrument built by Patrick Gill. Minimalist and intelligent throughout, Bob’s album carefully blends harmonies with the sometimes grinding, sometimes-pure lo-fi tones of the SK-1, treating it as a serious instrument, rather than a funked-up toy
