The Enlightening Piano

Conceived by Steensen Varming and illumni for Vivid Sydney 2013, the light-emitting, perspex piano resonates audibly and visibly as it is played. The complex challenges – in reflecting frequency of sound as frequency of lights, expressed as colours – were many. It is entirely fitting that we have donated this highly interactive instrument to the sensory room at Arranounbai School where the focus is on literacy, art, music, and technology for children with disabilities.
