Welcome to a public session with improvisations and presentation of the project (see program below)!
Player Piano Player Weekend by Pavel Matveyev and Ricardo Atienza.
Player Piano provides the technology and space for participants to make, share and enjoy music together.
This project was born in Lövstabruk at Klaverens Hus, a collection of over 600 Swedish analogue keyboard instruments. Player Piano explores how to expand traditional piano playing and grant universal access to all ages and skills. To this aim, we developed an intuitive interface that allows some of these instruments to be played without requiring long instructions or training periods.
We question the boundary between music consumers and music producers.
We believe that everyone can create music.
