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.
In addition to the main festival Avaton this year we develop the Avaton Distorted which focus on live electronic and electroacoustic performances.
