About

PYANOOK: Grand expedition.
Ralf Schmid performs live on two acoustic pianos with motion-controlled electronics.

PYANOOK: Undiscovered pianistic terrain.
Revolutionary data gloves detect hand and finger movements and enable PYANOOK to control sound processing in the flow of piano playing.

PYANOOK: Futuristic piano recital 4D.
Video-projections on aerial sculptures: PYANOOK´s compositions/improvisations interact with the visual art of Pietro Cardarelli.

„... the blend of sound and movement seems like magic.“
