This is what happens when you flip the notes on a keyboard. Piano purists, look away...
Prepare to hear a piano that is anything but ordinary.
Because on this digital keyboard, the high notes are to the left, and the low notes to the right.

We won’t give any spoilers – they’re for you to work out yourself...
