Sonic Sculpture

This sonic sculpture is a digitally and acoustically interactive piano rebuilt from recycled and reimagined parts. Its skeleton is left open, inviting the architecture around it to become its resonant body. All missing pieces were measured, determined, reimagined and reproduced through digital tools.

The sound you interact with marries both acoustic and digital sound. Certain hammers trigger sound samples from online media. Simultaneously, the keyboard triggers acoustic sound from the harp using the repurposed mechanism of the once obsolete piano.
