This piano piece explores new musical and sonic sounds of a real piano and through human gestures but without actually performing on the keys of the piano. The performer controls, through a pressure sensor glove, the vibrating motors that are placed on the stings inside the piano. The performer, through a pressure sensor glove on the right hand, controls the vibrating amplitude of the motors. The left hand controls all other live processing and looping through a touchscreen tablet. Sounds from the strings are processed lived along with the prerecorded sounds.
Performed at the Interactive Keyboard Symposium — Goldsmiths, University of London —9 November 2012. Thanks to Alistair Zaldua for the video.
