Glenn Gould usually hummed while he played, and his recording engineers varied in how successfully they were able to exclude his voice from recordings. Gould claimed that his singing was subconscious and increased proportionately with the inability of the piano in question to realize the music as he intended.

Talk about a workman blaming the tools.

Have a read about a pianist who wouldn't record in a room where the temperature wasn't exactly right: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenn_Gould#Eccentricities
