How would you re-design the piano to work outside of Earth's gravity?

Would a piano work on the space station? Would the strings vibrate differently?

Or let's say you got a piano up to the moon. You'd have to play it much differently In the moon's gravity. Not only would the hammers work differently, but the strings might vibrate differently as well.

So how would you re-design the piano to work outside of Earth's gravity?

On the moon - would you hear it?

Assuming that you'd be in some Buzz Aldrin style fancy dress, and the lack of atmosphere.

I hate digital pianos, but maybe the moon would be an ideal place to move them all to, with bluetooth connection to speakers in the space suits.

I think extremely abrasive dust could be a major problem too, as the USA space program found out.

Interesting question.
