This interactive projection is only active when the audience engages with the work. As the viewer plays the keyboard, the midi signal triggers a specific video and sound for each white key. The black keys play actual notes, and if played, there is some semblance of melody regardless of whether the player knows how to play the keyboard.
The videos are arranged by octaves and colors. The lower notes appear on the left of the screen and are green. As the notes get higher, they shift to yellow, then orange, then red on the right side of the screen. The colors mimic the lights of an audio equalizer (EQ). The more keys that are played, the more videos and sounds are triggered. The keyboard can be played in an intentional way to light particular areas of the screen or keys can be hit randomly. In this sense, the viewer becomes the composer for the piece.
The videos and sounds are a collection of clips sampled from everyday life; generally they are close ups of mundane objects often overlooked. The collection of the ordinary comprises our everyday experience.
