I'm participating in a production where a chamber orchestra plays in an outdoor theatre. The piece requires a harp but because it's outdoors and there's no warm storage available we don't want to use a real harp but a keyboard player who can easily take the instrument with him.
Playing harp glissandos is somewhat tricky and there's a lot of those in the piece. I was thinking about mapping the required scale to the white keys and the player would just play a jazz piano glissando between two notes that he would mark in his score. Any other ideas?
Will the remapping be possible on a Triton 61 / PRO 76 or Motif 7 / Motif 8? These are the models that are easily available. The Motif 8 has a weighted keyboard which might not be helpful in this case. I've downloaded the manuals and will look into this but I thought that someone might have experience with these keyboards. I'm trusting that the harp sounds will be tolerable on any of these keyboards.
