Play it, Sam

computer program, electrical piano, projection ⋅ 2012

The art installation Play It, Sam promises a new approach to the sound synthesis of the classical piano: A touch on the keys triggers not an analogue or digital sound, but rather plays short video clips from feature films, in which the corresponding piano key is pressed. Playing this new "instrument" results in a rapid sequence of various film scenes, who reproduce the played notes.
