“Notes # 1” is the first step of an ongoing project that explores different timbres and sounds in the large instruments’ world: a series of minimal visual representations created in order to describe the translation of a different acoustic instrument.
The stand up piano has been chosen for “Notes # 1,” with music composed and performed by the Scottish pianist Glacis. His notes are analysed by a software and divided into three categories. These three layers are represented by three main colors of the RGB video creation (Red, Green, Blue) and then translated into video images that recall the cellular composition of organic tissues. “Notes # 1” can be viewed as a materialised piece as well as a continuous flow of creation and dynamic evolution, an endless rotation around a horizontal axis.
“Notes # 1” is an interactive installation: only the presence of the viewer may activate the flow.
