Is it the piano preparation or the playing technique?
Whatever, Margaret Leng Tan's recording of John Cage's Bacchanale is an excellent hybrid between percussion and piano; muffled, damped, rhythmic and yet playful. Intended for percussion, it was Cage's first work for prepared piano.
New Sounds has a Real excerpt although John Schafer talks over it in his introduction to a show dedicated to Cage. Here's an MP3 (via johncage.info and UCLA) of Stephen Drury's recording.

Do you have your web set up so that people can listen to the songs they are trying to find?

No, unfortunately, I don't own the digital rights to be able to post the music on this blog.
