New Fordist Piano Projection
Author: David Pocknee
New Fordist Piano Projection uses a projector placed above a keyboard as to indicate to untrained performers what notes they should play, and when.
Any music, recorded as a MIDI file and whose pitches fall within the range of the piano, can be used for this program.
A projector is placed above the piano keyboard and aligned using the settings within the program.
Once it is in place, the program is run, and small red and green squares are projected onto the keys which need to be pushed down, disappearing when they must be released.
The performer must press or release the keys as quickly as possible, following the square’s appearance or disappearance.
The level of brightness of each of these squares corresponds to the force used to depress the particular key.
