Leçon de piano
Leçon de piano Émile Morin et Jocelyn Robert (2009)

The piece Leçon de piano was devised for the Disklavier piano based on words and a colour chart.

The piece Leçon de piano was devised for the Disklavier piano based on words and a colour chart. In a dark room, colours and letters were projected onto the piano keyboard. Each letter and colour projected caused a corresponding key to sound. The colours and letters appeared in a seemingly random manner until a complete sentence was created. The piano would then stop playing, and the colours and letters would disappear slowly as the notes faded. When all the elements were almost completely erased, a new sentence was created. The work was an audio-visual landscape where colours and letters seemed to appear randomly until complete sentences were revealed, then were slowly erased as the piano sounds faded. Visitors were invited to a concert of colours, words, and sounds that made up the ambiance of the piece.
