Chopin Hero


Play-along with Frédéric Chopin; Nocturne in F major. The player sits down at a piano, where lights are mapped to four keys on the piano. As the music starts playing, the player can take part by listening, watching the lights and pressing the corresponding key, just like in the familiar video game.

I designed and built this installation as a low-tech interactive piece, to be included in an interactive theatre performance. It consists of a control panel built in Max/MSP, coupled with an electronics part based on an Arduino.
