On the 25th of October the Villa Elisabeth concert hall will host the launch of PYANOOK. More than just an album, PYANOOK is an investigation into digital and analogue sounds, tradition and innovation, “It is my artistic exploration of technology. I set myself just one limit: all electronic sound creation is based on the timeless timbre of the grand piano,” says Ralf Schmid, the artist behind this project.

With PYANOOK, Schmid unlocks whole new potentials for the piano and live performances. While technology is often employed in acoustic pieces on a post-production level, to modify or add layers to existing sounds, Schmid employs it from the inception. To do so, he turned to a special and groundbreaking piece of music technology, the mi.mu gloves, which allow him to digitally manipulate the sound of what he plays on the piano instantly by his hand gestures only. The compositions come to life with every movement of the pianist, becoming intrinsically and physically connected to him. Every slight turn of the wrist, every bend of a finger alters the sound emanating from the piano in unique ways.
Added to PYANOOK's intense corporeal performance is a mesmerizing lighting show and visuals by Pietro Cardarelli. Triggered by the gloves’ movements, Schmid and Cardarelli interact audiovisually in real-time.
Join Ralf Schmid on the 25th October to witness the birth of PYANOOK.
