Piano and live electronics:
Resonance Corporel du Piano Virtuel V. 2.0
This piece is an extension of the version 1.0 that includes video tracking of the movement through a Kinect camera.
All the sounds are recordings of my own piano extended techniques as a decontextualisation of them.
This piece was premiered in September 2016 in the SMC Computer Music Association S.T.R.E.A.M Festival in Kampnagel, Hamburg (Germany)
In this piece the sound of the piano is transformed, convoluted with himself, getting microtonal and twisted. The Yamaha keyboard is an extension of the vertical piano with sounds of prepared piano.

These two pieces are an exploration of the two natures of the piano: as an on/off instrument (binary 0, 1), characterised by relatively short sound, and as a big resonant being that sustains the sound (extended use of the piano). The electronic interface was built thinking of integrating the piano, according to these two characteristics:
Four computer keyboards and a radio circuit bending are the extensions of the piano.
The sounds are samples of the sounds of different computer keyboard keys.
The idea with this set up is recycle technology and give a new life to those keyboards, speakers, circuits, joysticks, etc. using them as musical instruments.
Crotals, video tape, tibetan bells and other extended techniques are used combined with a loop station with a small nano controller, hide in the piano box. The result is a stream of sustain sound, resonating, and creating a drone atmosphere.
Software used: Ableton Live, Max/MSP, junXion.
Premiered in April 2015 in Stockholm
